Orbital Drydock 5 Colour Masks Lifespan
« on: November 28, 2018, 08:23:17 am »
Howdy folks

Just a quick wee message to see if anyone knows the lifespan (before using) of the titular OD masks as my own 1/350 is put back about 6mths due to a couple of builds for friends and I want to make sure they can still be used (I bought them about 1-2mths ago).

I have already enquired to Ralph/Tena Controls about his board and that 's good to go for a couple of years at least and I have already had it for 9mths.

I will eventually start my own refit.

Thanks to any replies.

The shelf life of most vinyl mask material is two years. If kept in a cool dark place and kept dry.
After that you might see shrinkage.

Thanks Cameron.

They will definitely be used before two years is up.
