France 1944, Pt.1

1:35th Decal Sheet BD-35029
Review by Terry Ashley

Bison Decals
This release from Bison Decals is the third in the series on the Panzer IV with markings for nine vehicles from Pz/Lehr Div., 1.SS-LAH and 12.SS-HJ in France during 1944 covering the Ausf.H and J

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 and a good selection of balkenkreuz. All the vehicles are finished in overall Dark Yellow with Dark Green and Red Brown cam schemes with the markings adding a bit more colour to the 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 markings on this sheet can be used on any of the applicable kits from Dragon (Ausf.J) and Tamiya (Ausf.H/J).

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.
