Nice review! Now that I've got two versions of this platform in my stash, I'm going to have to add that mask. Having hand-painted the wheels on my M1A1 Abrams, I'll never do that again if there's a QuickWheel mask.

Great review James. Very comprehensive. I wonder if you could cut some new holes in the mask to get rid of the return roller problem? But it is still far better than hand painting.. which is something I dislike about AFVs with rubber edged wheels..

Bill, thanks for the opportunity to try these out. I think hand painting tires from here on out just got more tiresome

Thanks Warren, it would be pretty difficult to cut new holes and get the vinyl 'perfect'. I use Vallejo Model Color black/grey for the tires so not a big deal for me to touch them up quick. And, yeah, much better than hand painting or even using a circle template.
