First Look

Those of you who've been modeling a while are familiar with the Archer Fine Transfers' line of markings. What is especially nice with Archer's products is that they are dry transfers, so you don't have to gloss coat your armor model just to avoid the ever-present threat of decal silvering which is common to waterslide decals that are applied to flat or rough paint surfaces. Simply rub these on and press on with your weathering.


Here is a new release from Archer's prolific line-up: this set replicates the markings applied to the Adjutant's Panther Ausf.G assigned to the Hitler Youth Division, 12th SS Panzer Regiment.

Overall these are all great sheets as we have come to expect no less from AFT, and they have not disappointed.

My sincere thanks to Archer Fine Transfers for this review sample.
