DPC-35 Disc pattern camouflage masking stencil, Panther G and others, Mid-End 1944
after month of tests and evaluating existing products, Uschi came to the conclusion that a paint mask made of flexible masking material is the best way for replicating disc camo
Why does she say that?
- A stencil will be the only way to allow you the full use of your precious skills in painting without any compromise.
- Masks stick to the model, making it easy to replicate hard-edge contours. In case you like soft-edge spots, just lif the mask a tiny bit. Full control is the key.
- The colour coats are equal and homogenous, because there is only one media: Colour. Filters and oil colours, applied over pattern, will respond the way you re used to know.
- The colour will match to you references because you decide which colour it will be. There is no preadjustment as we have with decals for example.
- The re-usability plus the sheer amount of stencil material included in the package and the much more affordable pricing is another reason to opt for stencils.
