    Product Description
    Type: water-slide decals
    BTR-80s from 5 nations: Macedonia, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and Belorussia. Featuring a great variety of camouflage patterns utilised by various nations. Bat symbol mask is provided for the Belorussian option (with fearsome cat stencil on the front), as seen during ZAPAD 2013. The Ukraine coastal marine's BTR feature a very detailed and colourful marking on the turret that was seen during Exercise Steadfast Jazz, in typical Ukrainian way of camouflaging their vehicles (black demarcation lines). This vehicle was photographed with a Polish Rosomak "Wolverine" in the background. Image can be found at Wikipedia if you search the internet for "Exercise Steadfast Jazz". The Turkish BTR feature what looks like NATO 3 tones, with flags, during SFOR operations. The Macedonian BTR, although in single tone, is emblazoned by their bright and colourful national flag. The Russian example was in an unusual fashion - a NATO-styled KFOR badge sticker in the rear.

    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.
