    Product Description
    Water-slide Decals

    This sheet is an attempt to cover all the alpha-numerics used by the well known Panzer-Lehr and Das Reich Panthers.

    One of the main highlights of this sheet is the personalised names found on some the Panzer-Lehr Panthers during the Normandy / Normandie Campaign. So far only two of the names can be associated with full turret numbers: "Gerda" & "Ursula". While the turret numbers of "Ingrid and "Christel" could not be found. Just the same, they are also included, with the hope that the associated turret numbers will one day surface. The second highlight of this sheet is the two Ernst Barkmann vehicles. One is a late Ausf. D and the other an Ausf. A ("Barkmann's Corner", in Normandy). Together with two other DR panthers, they make up the DR lot featured in this sheet.

    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.
