Need 1/144 WW2 tank decals

#1

Post by Schogun »

My error with the previous post. I'm looking for *ww2* tank decals, not ww1.

I found some British and American at I-94/Raiden. Also contacted Panzer Depot to see if the French decal sheets are still available.

Thanks for all help thus far.

Panzer depot actually offers French WWII tank decals for U.S. vehicles used bt Armee de Terre in 1944-1945.
http://www.panzerdepot.com/eshop/catalo ... cts_id=281 (even if it is marked as 'USA AFV decals', the first sheet is mostly about French Lend Lease AFVs.
I suppose you need decals for 1939-1940 "Drole de Guerre" and German Blitzkireg French vehicles: this would surely do for you but it has been out of stock for years https://www.hlj.com/1-144-scale-sorenar ... -ysk-00337

Good, I feel less dumb as I didn't notice the previous thread said WW1 until my second post. :D

Here are some links to several suppliers:

https://tl-modellbau.de/TL-Decals-1-160 --> 1/160 scale but works well
http://www.minibits.net/i-94-decals/
http://www.decalprint.de/Webseite_2016/ --> customized decals, cooperative contact, not too expensive
https://www.flightdeckdecals2400.com/ --> I used red stars in 1/300 scale for aircrafts for my tanks in 1/144
https://pendraken.co.uk/decals/
http://www.miniaturefigurines.co.uk/Cat ... egoryID=12

Don't buy at http://domsdecals.com/ They don't deliver and reply anymore.

I have the French sheet that Matt Snedden (aka Mehusla) used to sell on evilBay. Whilst he used an ALPS printer, they were crystal clear with very little sign of the spotty appearance often associated with that type of printer. Unfortunately, looks like his son (?) didn't continue the family tradition and the account has been inactive for nigh on a year. You can see some of Matt's decals on my Char B1 bis near the foot of this post.

If you can't find what you are looking for among the options above, you can always try printing them yourself. This works well if you have access to a decent printer - a colour laser is ideal, but better quality inkjets can suffice nicely. The one problem - which the ALPS could handle - is printing white. Unfortunately, most French tank names and many of the numbers need just that. :cry:
