    Product Description
    Water-slide Decals

    Suitable for 1/35 figures of Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) and Operation Iraqi Freedom theater of operations, and Vietnam war was well, these are screen printed by Microscale.

    Special feature: unique helmet patches for the 101st airborne! Just the "Screaming Eagles" patch for the arm would not be enough. Also, different kinds of Ranger shoulder tabs.

    The name patches already come with names, but modellers can make their own name patches if they like - you'll need a sharp blade, a good set of tweezers and also a good pair of eyes!

    Primary Insignias include:
    1st Infantry Division

    2nd Infantry Division
    3rd Infantry Division
    4th Infantry Division
    24th Infantry Division
    82nd Airborne Division
    101st Airborne Division
    5th Special Forces Group Airborne
    3rd Army
    10th Mountain Division
    1st Cavalry
    1st Armoured Division
    South Dakota National Guard
    220th Military Police Brigade
    US Army Military Assistant Command
    Elements Central Command

    Each of the insignias and patches are carefully created in 1/35 to match closely to the dimensions of the actual patches. No effort is spare from creating each artwork - if you can't see the details on the sheet, it means it's too fine to be printed in 1/35! Hopefully, they will make it in 1/16th scale

    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.
