Hi all,

I was asked to review the MXpression Hetzer ambush masks for an upcoming article. I used the Skoda Ambush scheme on the left side and the BMM Ambush on the right side. For airbrushing I used Tamiya colours and Vallejo for hand painting the brush marks on the left side.

I also tried the ambush masks for the Panther using Vallejo Air. The Panther will not feature in the article.

Here a few photos to show you my results.

Best Regards,

Mario.

I'm surprised it has take so long for aftermarket companies to start producing masks like this, but I am glad they are here now!

I was wondering how these would look.
Did you use the Tamiya Jagdpz 38t?

Yes this is the Tamiya kit. But the masks would fit any of the brands.

Best regards,

Hi Mario

How re-usable are the masks?



Nice work.

Hi Bill,

To do the small stenciling on the Hetzer I used the same masks 5 times (so re-using them 4 times so far), and they still stick like new. Of course the paint builds up, but this does not seem to be a problem. They stay flexible all over and sticky on the bottom.

In fact if you really would want to get the paint off the masks, you could do this by adding some tape on top and then carefully removing it again, pealing some or all of the paint off.

Hope this helps?

Best regards,

Mario.
