New from Hawaiian Air Depot: 1/32 8AF Mustang Essential Masks for the Revell P-51D-5/15

Recommended Posts

Lately we've been a little distracted releasing teeny-tiny Hurricane masks for the new Arma kit, but today we're back in LSP land with the release of our P-51D 8AF Essential Mask set for the 1/32 Revell D-5 and D-15 Mustangs. This set include 5, 9.5x7in. pages of downloadable files for cutting your own masks at home on Silhouette and Cricut machines.


These designs mask it all: canopy, antiglare panel, wheels, prop tips, insignia, theater ID stripes, two styles of invasion stripes, and two styles of checkerboard nose markings allowing you to paint a variety of subjects from the 357th, 339th, and 55th Fighter Groups. Use kit or aftermarket decals for the squadron codes, serial numbers, personal markings, and stencils: Hawaiian Air Depot will do the rest.


You'll also get designs we believe have never before been offered: one group masks the panels that remained when the Mustang's wing was puttied. Place the masks, slather on your favorite filler and smooth it out. Shouldn't be so tedious anymore.


And you know that curved sliver of metal between the windscreen side panels and the antiglare panel? Yep, we made you a mask to paint that. And, of course, all the designs feature our innovative alignment aids and slight overspray cutouts for underlying colors.


Check it out at Hawaiian Air Depot or Scalemates. Coming up next are addendums to the 8AF Essential designs: more checkerboards for 78th and 353rd FG Mustangs. If demand is there we'll do more 8AF addendums: green noses, yellow noses, all the noses. Then we'll pull together a set for 15AF Mustangs: Red tails, striped tails, checkerboard tails, all the tails.


Then it's back to the 1/32 Spitfires, with camouflage masks and markings sets for the Revell Mk. II and the Tamiya Mk. IX. We'll eventually modify our Mustang designs for the Tamiya kits and maybe even the 1/24 Airfix P-51D. But with the new 1/48 Corsairs and Thunderbolts soon to arrive we'll need to get to work on those. Don't worry; while we're at it we'll spend a little time scaling up and adjusting them to fit the big Tamiya Corsairs and the 1/32 and 1/24 P-47s, too.
