    Product Description
    Type: water-slide decals

    The Leaping Horseman, otherwise known as the 24th PD, the cavalry division that was decimated at Stalingrad in 1943. The divisional markings are meticulously captured from various image references (directly from the panzers) such that they remain as authentic as possible even in 1/35. So are the stylings of turret numbers, etc.

    Often, a number of references indicated that the divisional symbol was yellow. However upon careful scrutiny, it is very likely that the majority of the symbol painted on the panzers and other vehicles looked white instead. This is especially obvious on panzers with non-white tactical numbers (yellow) where the balkankreuz and divisional sign stood out boldly than the tactical numbers. The yellow versions of the signs are also provided in the set, just in case.

    Both specific and generic turret numbers are included. The various symbols are usable on other vehicle types as well as they looked pretty standard with very little variations.

    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 softener is also recommended at this stage. After applying softener, 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.
