    Product Description
    Water-slide Decals

    The 506 emblem did come in two distinct designs, not to mention two sizes as well! From the chronology of photographed 506 Tigers in various production types, it is almost certain that the smaller one was used first (found on Earlys and Mids-early, non-zimmerited), later replaced by the larger one (found on the Mids-later, with zimmerit and Late Production types).

    All of the company colours are provided, Stab (black or green - debatable), White for 1st, Red for 2nd and Yellow for 3rd Companies. The 506 numbers have a unique and distinct pattern, not like the irregular hand-painted ones. The only practical way of achieving "standardised" styles and sizes across every vehicle is through a set of stencils.

    Also provided are black outlined numbers to be used with the solid types - as some of numbers did come with black outlines. The second part of the sheet covers two Gruppe Fehrmann Tiger Is - probably the two most covered vehicles in a number of references. Both are "hybrids", meaning Early Tiger Is (Feifel equipments removed) with steel wheels and chevron tracks. Being part of a motley groups of Tigers, both sport very different camouflages, and different inner shades to the turret numbers! The outlines and inner colours are separated just in case modellers don't agree with the latter and prefer to paint in their prefered inner shade.

    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.
