Eduard 1/72 La-5 Early Canopy Masks
Clear Prop is on a roll with an exciting line of 1/72nd scale airplane kits. I've long been a fan of the Lavochkin La-5 in its many variants and have always liked the razor back La-5 Early. Eduard has just released a mask set for it. They're made of Eduard's customary rice paper and include masks for the windscreen, canopy and main wheels.
I regard masking canopies as a necessary evil. The model just doesn't look right with a slapdash masking job so I'm all for anything that makes this job easier. I've gotten used to using Bare Metal Foil when canopy mask sets aren't available, so I'm happy that Eduard has produced this set for the Clear Prop La-5 kit. I recommend these masks and I would like to thank Eduard for the review sample.
