Decals for model aircraft continue to be released at an ever-increasing
rate, but alternate markings for 1/35 scale military vehicles are
still comparatively rare.
Trakz has now produced a second and third decal sheet that will be helpful for anyone
building Tamiya or Academy's 1/35 scale Tiger I kits.
Item number TX-0079 is "Tigers in Italy". This sheet is 210mm x 95mm in
size and includes specific markings for 9 vehicles, plus some generic
white outline digits, unit markings and four different sizes/styles of
Item number TX-0080 is "Tigers in Normandy". This sheet is also 210mm x
95mm in size and includes specific markings for 7 vehicles, plus a large
number of generic digits in red with white outlines, unit markings and
four different sizes/styles of balkenkreuz.
The markings convey the impression of carefully hand-painted digits, with
subtle variations and irregularities. They do look excellent.
Carrier film is extremely thin, and my sample was in perfect register - an
important feature for the narrowly outlined red digits in some options.
Instructions are not supplied. This is more of a problem than with the
original Tunisian Tiger release because of the wide range of variables in
variant, fitout and camouflage. Fortunately, plenty of reference is
available for the Tiger tank, so the lack of instructions won't be a
serious problem for most modellers.
