"Initial" Tiger I in sPz-Abt. 501 DAK Service
1:16th Decal Sheet ELADC1604
Review by Terry Ashley

This release from Elite Armor Productions is a single slide decal sheet for the Tamiya 1:16 Tiger I kit and has markings for three "Initial" Tiger I in sPz-Abt. 501 DAK Service.

The sheet is quite small as far as 1:16 sheets go but again has 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 large turret numbers for each vehicle plus the sPz-Abt. 501 Tiger logo and unit markings plus four balkenkreuz to finish off the markings.

Also included is a large instruction sheet with colour illustrations of the three 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.

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

Another well printed and presented decal sheet for a variation on the Tamiya Tiger I with the kit requiring the appropriate modifications for the initial version.

Highly recommended for 1:16 armour fans.
