Review by Terry Ashley

Bison Decals
This release from Bison Decals is devoted to the Panzer IV Ausf.D with markings for eight vehicles operating in the Balkans, Russia and Africa.

The decals are printing in the UK by Colour Slide with good colour register and reasonably thin carrier film cropped close to the edge of the printed image although not as thin as the previous sheets printed by Microscale but should still adhere well with a bit of decal setting solution.

The sheets includes the Divisional markings, Unit insignia and Tactical markings for the featured vehicles as well as different styles of balkenkreuz applicable to the various vehicles. All the vehicles are finished in either Panzer Gray or Desert Yellow but the markings add a bit of colour to the plain schemes.

The instruction sheet has one full sized A4 sheet and an A5 sheet with three view black and white drawings of the vehicles showing the location of the various decals as well as a few scrap views where needed to show other markings as well as a list useful reference books. There is also a B&W reproduction of the decal sheet with all items numbered to help identify the markings shown in the diagrams and there shouldn't be any problems in locating the correct decal.

The obvious kits for this sheet is the excellent Panzer IV Ausf.D from Tristar (kit #35015) and the Panzer IV Ausf.D just released from Dragon (kit #6265) as well as the older Tamiya Panzer IV Ausf.D (kit #35096).

The images below and also available on the Bison Decals web site illustrate the markings included on the sheets as well as serving as additional painting guides.
