    Product Description
    Water-slide Decals

    Markings for a whopping 26 specific vehicles!

    Starting with Schwere Pz.Kp. Meyer Early Tigers, there are two known vehicles with personalised names across the frontal hull armour. The vehicle numbers were also very unique to these tanks, being very narrow and tall (yes, the "8" is really THAT narrow). This is consistent with the Tiger "2" number as well. Together with the white shield and black cross on the lower front hull, these two will make an interesting and colourful pair in a diorama.

    he second part, also the primary focus, of this decal sheet covers the very diversified markings and camouflages used by the 502 Tigers. Being the first ever heavy battalion to employ Tiger Is, it received almost every production types minus the late and final versions. Tiger "2" (and very likely "3" as well) were Initial types.

    Tiger "311" has been quite an intriguing vehicle that I'm almost quite certain the "11"s were of a lighter shade than the "3"s, this visual information didn't just come from only one view of the real beast. Given that "311" was the first vehicle of 1st platoon, it may (or may not) have received special treatment to its numbers.

    Some of the turret numbers in middle have quite a difficult colour shade to decipher, so both red and black shades were provided.Of the red with white outline numbers, Tiger "305" received a personalised name on the LHS of the barrel sleeve - "Hildegard". Lastly, of special mention are the "veteran" Tigers at the bottom of the sheet. Two of the vehicles received no less than 3 different styles of numbers! Also, the white outlined with inner stroked numbers are also very unique to 502. Added to that, the stroked lines in the numbers seems to go only in a bottom-left to top-right fashion, both sides!

    How to apply water-slide decals:
    1. Preparation: to achieve better result, a gloss or semi-gloss coat is very important. It will make a smooth layer which the decals will suction to and make it much easier to apply and set them.
    2. Cut out the decal you need (do it on cutting mat)
    3. Grab the decal with tweezers, place it on the surface of the water and leave it for about 20 seconds.
    4. Remove the decal from the water and place it on paper towel to remove any excess water.
    5. Apply decal solution to the part where the decal is to be placed.
    6. Slide the decal off the backing paper on to the model. Using a paint brush or cotton bud is a good way to do this without damaging the decal.
    7. Use the brush, knife or cotton bud to position the decal. Using your paper towel, gently dab the decal and soak up the excess water (decal softner is also recommended at this stage. After applying softner, the decal will suction to the part and flatten out smooth.)
    8. When the decal is completely dry, give another coat of varnish or Klear/Future to seal it.
