DN Models have released a set of masks for the Numbers & Insignia for the Airfix 1/24th Typhoon Mk.Ib.

Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib Numbers & Insignia Paint Mask Set 1/24th

Suggested scale - 1/24th

Suggested kits - Airfix Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib #A19003 & #A19003A

Price - $29.99

SKU -24/827-004

The set includes 4 (four) RAF marking options included in the Airfix kit

The set includes three sheets 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 Typhoon Mk.Ib numbers and insignia paint mask set is designed to be used as a substitute for the markings’ decals included in Airfix Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib kits. In 24th scale Hawker Typhoon presents a pretty big aircraft model once completed. That, alongside with the relatively large size of the British RAF insignia typical for the period, dictates that decals are not the best option. Painting the insignia allows for better weathering techniques, for which decals are not suitable. Overall look of the painted markings is superior compared to the decal medium and in 24th scale this feature of the masks is highly noticeable.

The Airfix Typhoon is one of the new line of Airfix kits produced in large scale and manufactured according to the new modeling standards. There are couple of versions of the Airfix Typhoon on the market and this set covers two of them – #A19003 and #A19003A. Some of the included insignia can easily be used with all of the variants released. Due to the size of such kits, decals are not recommended for various reasons. The single most important one is the realism of the completed model, which can be achieved easily by using masks instead of decals. Masks for scale models present the modeler with the opportunity to show weathered effects, scratches and color variations, which are impossible when using decals. That is valid especially for the insignia of the completed model, but goes for the canopy as well. For the latter one, a different set is available from DN Models.
