1:35th Pak Decal Sheet Pak002
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 second set has 42 different subjects that include Divisional markings such as Reichsführer SS, Hohenstaufen (Arnhem), LSSAH, Wiking, Prinz Eugen and Grossdeutschland with its insignia variations. Also included are markings for various Sturmgeschutz companies plus a selection of generic turret numbers with red inner colour and a selection of Balkenkreuz.

The quality of the decal printing is superb with excellent colour register and some of the insignia with two colours had 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 42 options available on the sheet but there is only two vehicles 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.
