Looking for someone who can cut paint masks for my 1/24 Mossie

Recommended Posts

I can supply accurate Adobe Illustrator files or a PDF but I have a specific plane in mind and there are no paint masks for the markings.

Primarily doing the roundels, the squadron codes (EG-J) and the aircraft ID (HX974).

I'm in the US.

Maybe another option...

Any sign making/car graphics shops in your vicinity? They've got the tools and materials (e.g. 3M/Oracal vinyl foils) to have your layouts plotted/cut.

Sometimes, all they're asking for is to put a few bucks in the kitty.

I can try. In my experience many of those places have a problem with smaller details (the aircraft ID is a bit small) but I might give that a try if another modeler here doesn't have the rig.

Marketer make some generic RAFsets in 1/24 scale.

They'll also do custom sized ones. I've ordered these for several of my own projects. They do take a bit of time to arrive though.

Here's my Tamiya Spitfire using custom made masks.

One last thing. Often the codes end up coming as individual elements rather than a single mask so they can take a bit longer to use.

Hope that helps.
