Title: Paint Masks
Post by: John Thompson on March 10, 2007, 09:53:04 PM
Here's a site I found which offers a large selection of paint masks, heavily oriented toward VVS aircraft:

http://www.photoka.info/t-ussr/index.htm

The left-hand column is canopy masks which include national insignia; the third column is individual aircraft marking masks for those who'd prefer to paint rather than apply decals. I haven't made contact with the site owner to determine prices, etc., yet, but I'll update the thread when I get more details.

(By the way, does anyone have a Maquette 1/72 Yak-7A they'd like to sell?)

The masks I mentioned in the previous post are manufactured by a Russian source called Hobby Plus. Here's the home page:

Here's the VVS masks page:

I'm trying to find out details about how to buy these; maybe someone who speaks Russian can help? There doesn't seem to be an English version of the site. Thanks very much, in advance!

I see nothing that indicates method of ordering/payment, anywhere on the site. Best advice is to send them почте (e-mail) [email protected]
If you need a rudimentary translator that will get your point across try: http://www.online-translator.com/text.asp?lang=en
If you need a more precise translation that is fully understandable (like if there's a problem with an order) send me a private message with what you want translated and I'll get it done for you within a day  ;).

The top of the page quoted just says
"Anything you are interested in but don't see here can be custom made in any scale if you have enough information - photos, drawings, schemes..."

This page should be easier to navigate - plane masks:

My experience with Travlenka responding to emails was quite good. Within 1 day of me emailing a query, they sent back the product photo I wished to see. I haven't tried ordering from them yet as I have been to busy with other stuff.
