Archer is the manufacturer of excellent dry transfers for armor models. These are decals that you do not have to spray gloss coat, wet them, use snuggling liquids and then spray dull coat to use. You just position them and burnish them down with a pencil or other blunt instrument. They are permanent then and have no carrier film to worry about. They look like they have been painted on. Archer has a vast number of various marks for armor kits. They are always in register and sharp in detail.
This latest sheet goes hand in glove with their sheet of German dash board instruments, reviewed on here elsewhere.
This new small sheet has a variety of information placards on it, printed in silver and black. They are in various sizes and there are 41 of them on the sheet.
The set comes in a cello-bag, backed by a still card and a sheet with an illustration of a general layout of how these placards might go in a German soft-skin or tank.
My example was trimmed a little crocked at the bottom, but it did not get into the images.
They will really dress up a couple of models that I am currently doing of 2 different German command cars.
I highly recommend this new sheet to all German armor modelers.
My sincere thanks to Archer Fine Transfers for this review sample.
