    Product Description
    Water-slide Decals

    The set covers two prime users of Panzer III tanks during their ost front campaign: Das Reich and Wiking. The markings for the Das Reich portion covers a wider range of models ranging from PzBwg Ausf. H, L and Ms. Of the L models, one guntank "233" features a personal name, "Ernst Stammler" (in Gothic font) above the turret number . Among the DR tanks, several were of the Kursk period, featuring the yellow Kursk-period marking as well as aerial recognition markings on top of the rear bin, instead of the commonly used flags. Also included are the strictly-DR generic alphanumerics allowing the markings of regimental and company level command tanks ("R"s and "C"s).

    The Wiking tanks featured in this set covers specifically 4 Ausf. J vehicles. However, the Wiking-styled generics (also provided) would allow other variants to be covered as well. These included digits from "1" to "5". One interesting observation is that the numbers on the rear bin is narrower as compared to those on the turret 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.
