Montex | K24009: 1/24 A6M2 Zero Super Mask Set

Reviewed by Mark Proulx

Montex has released a new set of masks for the Trumpeter Zero in 1/24th scale.

Three Pearl Harbor strike aircraft are included:

  1. Kaga, 2nd Squadron 15th Section No. 1 aircraft flown by Lt. Yasushi Nikaido
  2. Soryu, 2nd Squadron 1st Section No. 1 aircraft flown by Lt. Masaji Suganami
  3. Hiryu, 4th Squadron 11th Section No. 1 aircraft flown by Lt. Sumio Nouno

According to the instructions, all aircraft are finished IJN Grey overall. Right side profiles are supplied for each aircraft with smaller scrap views pointing out pertinent features of the upper and lower surfaces.

There are three small pages of masks, which provide all the necessary markings. This includes national insignias, individual aircraft markings and wing walk stenciling. Inner and outer canopy framing masks are also included making canopy painting very easy.

I am pleased to see that Montex supplies masks for Zeros from three different aircraft carriers involved with the December 7th attack. It is also nice to see that modelers will finally begin to have some optional markings for their 1/24th scale aircraft kits.
