    Product Description
    Water-slide Decals

    Markings should be enough for two models, complete with ultra-fine prints you'd normally see on CIP panels on any OIF related vehicles. Vehicle numbers are pre-combined so that you'd not have to mess around too much to get a specific Alphanumeric combination. Notice that there are two variations of black wavy arrows for you to choose from - check references for a more accurate usage. If you think that this is strickly a M113A3 set, think not. Please keep in mind 20th Engineer Battalion employed a great variaty of vehicles during the OIF campaign that include M557s, Humvees and M9 Armored Combat Earth-movers (ACE)! And yes, they did slap arrows on that cool vehicle! Those who do have that kit at hand will finally have a chance to put relevant markings on it...

    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.
