Thanks for the review Bill. Nice assessment of the product. These look very convenient but I've been using my $2 circle template for years.

hmm, to me it looks like a waste of money. to mask wheels i simply use a ruler which has a lot of diffrent sized circles in it. very easy and very cheap (around 3$). plus, it has so many circles, that you can fit almost - haven't tried all road wheels - any road wheel there is.

Hi, Matan,

It's a matter of personal preference. My hands are less steady than they once were, and these masks make the painting process so much easier. But I will likely have 3-5 Dragon Sd.Kfz.7 variants by the time I'm done, so it would be a good investment for me (Pz. III, T-34 as well).
