    Product Description
    Type: water-slide decals
    The Ukrainian Crisis saw the greatest use of the T-64BV tank in combat. It is the mainstay of the Ukrainian army and land forces. A number were captured and reused againsts its previous owner. This set covers markings of both sides since the start of the conflict. The Ukrainian BTR-80s usually feature the "parachute" emblem along with the standard tactical markings and battle stripes to distinguish themselves from the oppositions. A few were uniquely painted with unit markings - such as the one in this set.

    The opposition forces had a lot of standard and non-standard unit markings, as they were quickly applied and resent back into the battlefield. They also fielded a variety of tanks, not of Ukrainian origins (sources unknown/unconfirmed). Among these were T-72B1 with ERA and T-72B3. A few of the T-72B1 markings are also included in this set.

    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.
