    Product Description
    Covering both red and blue stripes on both vehicle types. The type-face are accurately and painstakingly captured from actual fonts, which required a more thoroughly researched effort. (No computer fonts were used) Also, the fonts are thinner on the blue stripes whereas those on the red ones are a lot bolder - no short cuts by simply cut-and-paste. There is also a Cyrillic version of red stripes seen on Typhoon Ks before they switched it to "MP". All eagle emblems (two sizes) come with a white border. The blue stripes are of a medium tone - which is why those blue stood out over Russian green in Syria. They are clearly not dark blue as used by some MP vehicles.
    Although this set provides pre-cut decals for specific vehicles, the free-floating white text of both thin and bold versions are also included. These allow additional marking options for other vehicle types not covered in this set. Vehicles such as Typhoon U & Iveco Lince (used by the Russian forces). Typhoon K dashboard and console decals are also included, which was not provided in Takom's kit.
    Comes with one clear blue resin light bar & a photo-etched fret for the brackets. Both Typhoon K and GaZ Tiger-M used the same type of light bar. The same light bar can also be seen on some Russian police cars (civilian service) on Russian streets. (The light bar and accompanying PE fret will be offered as a separate set in the near future).
    This being the first Echelon FD set that came with a clear resin part (casted by yours truly), I would like to thank all those who stepped forward to provide resin-casting advices which helped me in achieving the results that I seeked. They are (in no particular order): Jason Miller, Gavin Cross, Chris Mrosko, Azrael Raven, Simon Beard, Martyn Dorey, Desmond Koh & Jose Rodriguez. (if I've missed out anyone, please let me know, and I do apologise for that). The blue light bar started off as a 3D model (carefully crafted based on actual light bar), which was then 3D-printed. It comes with fine details such as the tiny rows of slits at the centre front (for speakers), and 4 screw holes (two on both ends) on the blue covers. After a thorough polishing to a smooth and shinny surface, it was then casted in clear blue. Sounds easy? Trust me, a lot of pain, sweat and tears (not to mention costs and time) went into this little piece... But alas, it is finally completed after several gruelling months...

    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.
