I picked up 2 sets of e-z maskes while I was at the Nats in Columbus. I
just finished using it on my Tamiya Corsair and they worked great.

Basically they are the reverse of Fast Frames. They are die cut for each
clear part on your model. You apply with soapy water and then just paint
the exposed frames whatever color you want. I just wish that I had
gotten there early enough to get a set for my Avenger.

The address on the instructions is -

Chris Loney
RR#4 Smith Falls
Ontario, Canada K7A 4S5
1-613-283-5206

The guy I bought they from at the Nats. said that the creator hadn't
made any deals to sell they in the U.S. yet, so you probably have to go
direct with your order. The prices for each set were $3.00.

Hope this helps,

Allan,

E-Z Masks are the reverse of Fast Frames. Computer cut vinyl masks
designed to mask the clear parts of the canopy, thus allowing you to spray
the exposed frames the appropriate color(s). Have several of them and am
highly impressed by their appearance. Haven't used them yet but have no
doubt they'll live up to their billing. From where I sit, it sure beats
the Fast Frame approach, tho they both have their place.

Have just acquired the Fast Frames P-38 set and will be using them in the
next few days. After looking at them and reading their instructions, E-Z
Masks look even more appealing!

Contact Chris Loney, RR 4, Smiths Falls, Ontario, Canada K7A 4S5 (ph:
613-283-5206). You can also order from: Hobby House, 80 Montreal Road,
Vanier, Ontario, Canada K1L 6E7 (ph: 613-749-5245).

Some 30 subjects are available at the present time (including the Tamiya
Beaufighter and Accurate Miniatures SBD Dauntless), with many more in the
development stage.

Here's a question - how do you remove the masks once the paint is dry?

Thanks,

Mark

Only if you want the plastic pilot to see out the windows!    ;)

Oh, you asked HOW to remove them, not if you remove them!
I have experimented with the "leftovers" of the Fast Frames (haven't
gotten around to using these yet, no time!) and they come off easily
with the use of an exacto, but be careful not to scratch the clear
parts.

I too have used the extra film on Fast Frames, and find it to
be excellent !!! VERY easy to move, and cut. I peel it off with
a toothpick, no problem, no residue.
(Fast Frames dont work half bad either...)

Still use Parafilm M, and BMF though...
