New Ware NWAM0036
(BAC) Lightning T.4 and T.5 Advanced Mask Set-- 1:48 Scale


New Ware Models produces a very diverse range of kits and aftermarket products. Recently, they have been producing a prodigious rande of precision-cut and self-adhesive Kabuki paper airbrush mask sets.

This set precisely masks off the winddscreen, canopy, and wheel hubs for the 1:48 scale English Electric (BAC) Lightning T.4 and T.5 for the Sword kit. The two-seat Lightning indeed gas some complex shapes in the windscreen and canopy, and this set will save a LOT of time!

I don't have the Sword Lightning T.4/T.5 kit, so this review cannot evaluate their fit, but all other New Ware masks I have are very precise and they fit great. The adhesive strength could be described as medium-tack.  It’s just right for the job.

Highly recommended!

Many thanks to Victory Models for the sample.  You can find them and the full range of New Ware masks at and for the review sample.  You can find them on the web at and on Facebook at
