There are many times when one builds a model and the need arises
for a particular type of decal. Not an item to complete the
markings, just one of the “detail” varieties.

Although marketed as 1/35, these decals can also be used for
other scales. They are of a type often found on US military
equipment but could be used for any number of subjects. The printing
is too small to be legible and this will add to their versatility.
There are 71 items in a wide variety of shapes. All the modeller has
to do is choose the one that closest fits his or her application.
Three flavours are supplied by Archer; black on white, black on
aluminium, and black on brass. The registration is perfect and what
could be seen is sharp and clear.
There are a couple of reliable methods to apply these. As they are
of the “dry” type, they can be immediately rubbed down on a clean

Setting solutions can be used but it would be a wise precaution not
to flood the item. Clear overcoats are also safe but play it safe by

These markings are an excellent way to provide that extra touch
that the standard kits often miss. Application is easy and one set
should last you a very long time.
