Default Aztek Dummy 350th TOS E masks, shortest review EVER

Short story shorter: Buy these.

I had the opportunity to try these out. They are incredible!

Vinyl is sticky enough that you won't worry about bleed-under, but not so sticky that you worry about pulling paint up.

Model painted with Tamiya Primer, 1 day cure time, then Tamiya AS-2 spray lacquer, one day cure time, masked, then airbrushed with Model Master flat black enamel that had been lightened a little. I waited about 10 minutes before removing the masks.

Conclusion: Wow.

Those really do look so much nicer than decals.

But just to nitpick....

Is it just me, or do they have a very slight difference in arc from the deflector grid?

No, it's not you, it's me.

I think I may have positioned the mask just a little too far down the saucer.

Comically, I just checked my stash and I bought the Aztec Dummy "painting" masks, but not the stencil set.

Duh.....
