Excellent quality. Great service

Fit perfectly.

This masking set fit perfectly, I just wish the same could be said for the actual kit canopy!
Kevin and Janelle make a great product, and give great service.

Thanks for the review, Iain! We're so glad you're happy with our masks.

Ju 88 AMT/ERTL/AmTech

The masks (masx) designed for the Ju 88 S/T variant also fit the G-1 and G-6 variants. Excellent fit, great product and the only game in town for these kits.

Thanks for your review and the clarification on the other versions our set will fit! I have updated the listing to reflect this info.

very good set

The Tamiya Tape type is thin, has good adhesion, sharply cut, and fits very well. Masks left no tacky residues after removal, they sat on the canopy for several days. I sprayed primer, body color, clear, and mat coats over them and didn't have to re-adjust or reinforce them. Recommended!

Thanks for the 5-star review Alaa and for including pictures! We're so happy you enjoyed using our masks. Your project looks ah-mazing!

Precise fit!

Excellent stuff, perfect fit easy to remove and place.
The best masks by far!

If you are one of the lucky ones to have this "Bomber B" program kit, which was released only once in 1999, you will find this to be the ONLY aftermarket specifically available for it. If your canopy parts have yellowed as mine have, it is not the end of the world. You can mix up some "Durhams Rock Hard Water Putty" or equivalent and pour it into the canopy. When hardened, simply pop this new male form out (it doesn't stick) and vacuum-form a fresh canopy over it with PETG sheet such as K&S Engineering #1304 (there are articles and tutorials online about how to do that). I have done it several times, it works! Masking old vac canopies- with their indistinct, soft framework and fragile nature- is always a fraught exercise and I don't know anyone who enjoys it. I am happy to have paid the money to someone who has made that job so much easier while also providing a more professional final appearance

I ordered this one in Tamiya tape to make it easier to conform to the compound curves of that glazed nose, and am glad I did. Even if you have a masking tape cutting guide, it won't help you here as only one "window" is square! Very glad to have masks for these one-off subjects. Buy with confidence, Kitmasx is a quality operation.

I gifted this set to a model buddy who had never used one before, and he was sold immediately. He said it gave him the freedom to fill and sand away some framing on the old kit where the fit was bad, and restore a good clean frame with paint later. Yep, this is a little-sung but important advantage to a good mask set: allowing better canopy-to-fuselage joint cleanup. He builds slowly but the Tamiya tape should be fine for months (or, knowing him, years!). Highly recommended

So good to find masks for the oldie but goodie kits (which have not yet been replaced!). Just be aware that if you intend to use the Falcon/Squadron vac canopy sets there is a different Kitmasx set for that, as linked above. I made that mistake (or the vac mask set didn't exist yet when I got mine?). In a saturated market, Kitmasx stands out for selection, quality, and personal service. Buy with confidence and save your modeling time for better things than masking greenhouses.

Who else would even think of making a mask set for this oddball? No one else yet! So glad to have it, as I always fear cutting masks on vac canopies. One caveat that isn't Kitmasx's fault: note that MPM/HML have gotten the molded framing wrong on the top rear area. Where the rear canopy hinges it should be curved forward not straight (to clear the spine when open). Not an easy fix so you may want to leave it alone. Also, you may want to mask over the front frames indicated in my drawing and so not paint them, as these were just a clear plexiglass join in reality. In a saturated market, Kitmasx stands out for selection, quality, and personal service. Buy with confidence and save your modeling time for better things than masking greenhouses.

MACH2 clear parts are notoriously bad- and not the only problems! This set, with good shapes and all those radiused corners, is indispensable. I will be following the above advice. So glad to have it. (Some good references, if you can find them, include Air Magazine No.30 Fev/Mars 2006, Aero Journal No.7 Dec 2008/Jan 2009, and Avions No.2&3 Avril&Mai 1993)

Can you imagine cutting masks as clean as this by hand in 144th? Sharp windscreen, gondola, turrets... It is well worth paying someone to do the design work, testfitting and corrections, and plotter cutting for you. Buy with confidence and save your modeling time for better things than masking greenhouses. A must!

Five stars all the way! Great customer service, great product - as usual!

Will add beautiful detail to your AMT Shuttle model. Finely cut and very workable mask.

Good product, fast shipping, simple ordering process

Great product; Timely delivery; Exact as spec; No bs. Love this guy!

I purchased two sets of the masking circles, they are awesome for windows, lights, wheels and masking where a curve is required. Very easy to apply and remove and they leave a nice crisp clean paint masking edge. There are 23 different sizes and 16 of each size so they should last a while for many different models and applications. Ordering was so easy and they arrived sooner than I was expecting and they came with a discount card for my next purchase. Super happy with the product and service.

Fantastic masking sets. Kit Masx is giving the modeller masking sets that have been wanted and needed for many, many years. They are filling a void. Great sets and wonderful folks to deal with. 5 stars, keep up ghe great work.

I haven't use the mask' set above mentioned yet, because still busy with another model Planet. However I can recommend It by the good material quality, the numerous parts cut with accurate precision and least but not last the interesting price.

...,.....work in progresso but a nice and well designed Plane mask' set. Incredible price !

Received faster than anticipated and the masks were perfect.

I have not used it as yet , but it did arrive quickly and in good order!

I have not used the product yet but the shipping was incredibly fast, less than 2 weeks. I will definitely be ordering more items.

Your masks do the job, and that's why I buy them.
