by: Andy Brazier [ BETHEYN ]

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17 (Russian: Микоян и Гуревич МиГ-17; NATO reporting name: Fresco) is a high-subsonic fighter aircraft produced in the USSR from 1952 and operated by numerous air forces in many variants.

MiG-17s first saw combat in 1958 in the Second Taiwan Strait Crisis and later proved to be an effective threat against more modern supersonic fighters of the United States in the Vietnam War.

In the bag
The sheet of yellow Kabuki tape masks are packed in a re-sealable bag with a small set of instructions.
The set has masks for both sides of the main wheel hubs.
The front windscreen has full masks for the three clear parts of the windscreen, but the main canopy only has the outer edges supplied so a mask will be needed for the central part of the canopy.
Having worked with Eduard masks on several occasions, I can report they are easy to use and apply.

The instructions are printed in a black and white line drawing and are well drawn and easy to follow, with the kit parts to be masked clearly marked. The instructions are easy to follow even if you have never attempted masks before.
As with all the latest Eduard sets and kits the instructions can be found on the product page on Eduard's website.

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on AEROSCALE.
Highs: Easy to use and apply
Lows: None really
Verdict: A good set of masks and well worth the money if you don't fancy making the masks yourself.

About Andy Brazier (betheyn)

I started modelling in the 70's with my Dad building Airfix aircraft kits. The memory of my Dad and I building and painting a Avro Lancaster on the kitchen table will always be with me.
