    Hello all,

    I recently purchased a 1/32 Hasegawa BF109G10 model kit. I am collecting materials to get started on it and I've found that canopy masks for this specific model are nowhere to be found. Can anyone help me out? I need the mask specifically for the G10 as its canopy is different from the G6, etc.

    The kit # is HSG08184 if that helps also...

    Thanks in advance!

    Did a little digging...this seems like it could work, assuming the 109K and 109G canopies are one and the same.

    Or, make your own with making tape, and a carefully used X-Acto blade.

    I use the 1/8th tamiya tape to mask my canopy frames
