    Product Description
    Type: water-slide decals

    37eme BCC vehicles were probably the most consistently and prominently marked B1bis tanks at the front when facing the onslaught of the German Blitzkrieg. Each tank features huge letters on the turret, hull sides and the rear, plus one of the card deck shapes on the turret rear facets. Also a common B1bis marking practice, each vehicle received a name, placed on the turret sides as well as the hull front below the driver's vision port.

    This set would also enable anyone to build a mega diorama featuring two or more B1bis from the 37eme BCC.

    While this set entitles one to choose any of the eight specifically marked tanks, there are also generics (specific to 37eme BCC for anyone who prefers to mark their models out of the eight options. Also included is the name "FANTASQUE" - the one and only famous B1bis tank tested with "trees" camouflage. This is for those who are keen to test their hand painting skills!

    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.
