Now that must be the best product review I have read anywhere in quite some time : hands on, no nonsense, good reference.

Kuddos!

Cheers,

I take back what I said about those masking tools: they sure look like they make the job easier. sometimes, the rulers with all the different diameter circles just don't "cut it" for certain wheels. I hope we will see a growing range of these products.

The masks are definitely a "crutch" for some of the macho modelers, but I have used them on the Sd.Kfz.7s (both Trumpeter and DML) and they really make a painful job MUCH easier.

I totally agree. I had some problems matching my M4 road wheels in their right circle. This tool may not be on the "must have" tools list, but certainly will make life easier.
