DN Models have released an interesting paint mask set for a Bulgarian Navy Arado Ar 196 in 1/48th scale.

Arado Ar 196 “Shark” Insignia & Numbers – WWII Bulgarian NAVY Paint Mask Set 1/48th

Suggested scale - 1/48th

Suggested kits - Tamiya, Italeri, MPM, Historic Plastic Models Arado Ar-196 1/48 kits

SKU -48/827-101


The set includes one sheet of masks (shown in the picture).  The masks are made from thin masking tape, which is easy to be peeled off and doesn’t leave any stains. The tape is tested on clear and painted model too. If carefully removed after painting, they can be used over and over again. Material is flexible and easily applied over curved surfaces. Semi-transparent for easy and accurate placing.

The Mask set is suitable for quarter scale Arado 196 seaplanes. It can be used with Tamiya, Italeri, MPM, Historic Plastic Models or any other 48th scale Arado 196 kit. The set covers some of the numbers that were used by the Bulgarian NAVY during the Second World War. During that period, Bulgaria had 12 aircraft Arado 196 stationed at Chayka seaplane airport near Varna. The seaplanes were used primarily for observation and were called “Shark” by their crews. The set features the insignia and some of the numbers, although not all of them are included due to lack of pictorial information. The emblem that represents a duck is not included in this set, since it can be replicated by custom or home-made decals only. However, the base for the emblem /if you decide to do it with home-made decals/ is included in this set and can be used for the white color base. Depending on the pictorial information, you can find the rudder painted in camouflage scheme, as well as in green and red, partially replicating Bulgarian flag colors.
