1:35th Pak Decal Sheet Pak001
Review by Terry Ashley

Pak Decals a new company from Mexico have released three initial water slide limited edition decal sheets covering German subjects from WWII with the sheets printed in Mexico to a high standard comparable to the better sheets available today.

The first set has 33 different subjects that include Divisional markings such as Gespenster (11th Pz Div), Totenkopf, Hitlerjugend, Frundsberg, Nordland and LSSAH plus markings for Panzer Korps and Panzer Regiments. Also included are a selection of generic turret numbers with the white outline only allowing you to add the inside colour of your choice and a selection of Balkenkreuz.

The quality of the decal printing is superb with excellent colour register and some of the small insignia having three colours with absolutely no colour bleed on my sample plus very thin carrier film cropped close to the printed image that look most impressive. These should adhere well to virtually any surface with the aid of any decal setting solution.

The instruction sheet lists the entire 33 options available on the sheet but there is only one vehicle illustrated and you will have to check your own references for the best application of the other markings but one thing that is not lacking is reference of German Vehicles of WWII so this shouldn't be a major problem for most German Armour fans.
