    Product Description
    Finally, a skull sheet for the Army M1s in OIF with 7 full marking options to choose from! Whether to build a sand colored vehicle with bones (3-7 Cavalry), or/and a NATO 3-toned with bones (1-37 Armor) - it's your decision!
    For diorama builders who wish to have two companion M1s in one scene, the 3-7 Cavalry, 1-37 Armor and 2-70 Armor markings come in pairs. The only exception being the 2-69 vehicle, which is a stand-alone.
    For those with the latest M1 Panther II Mine Clearing vehicle from Dragon, a bonus (and no doubt a shameless gimmick for this sheet) vehicle name for one tank which made it to OIF: "MY PRECIOUS"! That is if you choose to mark an OIF vehicle provided in the kit.
    Also new to this sheet, are one additional set of shipping labels, as well as a full set of generic alphanumeric stencils, different from other sheets available in the range.

    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.
