Do we know of anyone out there planning to release a canopy masking set for this kit?

I am sure all the mask making companies will do some soon, Eduard I am sure will do some, but every day I look I seem to see a new mask manufacturer, so I cannot see that being a problem

Doubtful with only a 1500 kit run but it is possible to make your own masks with something like Tamiya masking tape, a very sharp pencil and some careful cutting which we will probably end up doing assuming we have canopies worthy of spending the time masking up.

As soon as I get the actual model in my hands, I'm getting my masks custom cut by Omask. His masks are in whole different ball park when compared to let's say Eduard. Once it's done I believe he'll offer them for sale on his website - www.omask.cz

Sure, its possible to make my own masks - I just don´t want to ;) hence my question..

 

DN Models made a complete masking set for the JetMads Viggen which was limited to only 500 copies so I don´t think that is going to be a deciding factor. Its just going to be more expensive  - like the rest of the kit

Well it arrived and what a magnificent kit it is. Thankfully no issues with the clear parts.

 

Did you source yours locally Phill? ... If so, from where?

 

I'm waiting for a couple of local suppliers to get them in - so I can have the box contents checked before delivery.

 

Rog :)

All these planned AM bits for an already massively expensive kit just makes me laugh. Thought this kit was supposed to be perfection itself. 

I have to agree that some aftermarket is a total waste of time.  But no kit is perfect.
 

For my Border Models Lanc the most I will consider will be masks for markings as on this kit decals would be an abomination. 

 

Brass gun barrels as, apparently there are no cooling jackets on those with the kit.  Plastic barrels being too vulnerable.  
 

Possibly a metal undercarriage for strength.
 

Finally a 3D decal set simply because I really appreciate them. 
 

I am not fixed on any of those, apart from the masks and will decide when I see my kit.

Indeed, an amazing piece of plastic engineering and production though I'm puzzled why he's painting the structures silver (unless he intends that as a kind of "undercoat"); all the ones that I've seen and sat in have been matt black.
