T-34-76 & T-34-85 in Axis Service "The Beutepanzers"
1:16th Decal Sheet ELADC1603
Review by Terry Ashley

This latest release from Elite Armor Productions is a large water slide decal sheet for the Trumpeter 1:16 T-34-76 and -85 kits and has markings for eight captured T-34 "Beutepanzer" in German markings and a further three in Finnish markings.

The sheet is again quite large being the size of an A4 sheet with the printing nicely done with good colour register and the carrier film which has a matt finish is cropped very close to the printed image to aid in application.

Included are the turret numbers for each vehicle plus some vehicle names and unit markings plus a large selection of balkenkreuz in various styles and the Finnish markings.

Also included is a large instruction sheet with colour illustrations of all eleven vehicles with a colour side view showing the cam scheme with the colours used shown with RAL numbers plus a few scrap views of the front and rear for the decal placement there.
Each vehicle is further illustrated with a black and white wartime photo of the actual vehicle which gives invaluable reference for the finish and stowage of the vehicle.

The colour instructions are also downloadable in .pdf format from the Backyard Armor site.

Another well printed and presented decal sheet for anyone with the big Trumpter T-34s and looking for some interesting and different marking variations.

Highly recommended for 1:16 armour fans.
