Star Decals Roundup - March 2023
Star Decals, 1/35 scale
Reviewed by Brett Green
Star Decals from Sweden has been busy lately with a batch of new 1:35 scale releases:
35-C 1366 – Iwo Jima Sherman Tanks M4A2, M4A3
These three decal sheets offer markings for US vehicles in action on the Pacific front.
They offer some of the most interesting Sherman camouflage and markings available anywhere, in my opinion.
AMTRACK markings will be welcome too.
35-C 1373 – Turkey in WWII
A colourful decal set providing markings for Turkish T-26B tanks and BA-6 armoured cars. Six vehicles are covered in all.
35-C 1374 – Comet British WW2 Markings
Tamiya has supplied only a very limited number of markings on the decal sheet for their otherwise gorgeous new 1:35 Comet kit.
Star Decals has added two more Comet decal sheets to their range. The first covers 7th and 11th Armoured Divisions in WWII, while the second goes further afield with markings for Ireland, Finland, Burma, Cuba, South Africa
This will be a very useful decal set to individualise your Tamiya Comet. They will fit the Bronco kits too.
35-C 1376 – T-72B obr. 1985
These three focus on the current war in Ukraine.
All of these Star Decals releases are packed in a resealable plastic bag and feature a single folded A4 page of instructions. Each subject is illustrated in colour. Scrap views and notes are offered where necessary. The instruction sheet also has a number map for the decal sheet.
The decal sheets themselves are printed in perfect register. They have a satin finish but sit down on the surface of the model very well. I have used Star Decals on many project and they have always behaved well for me.
Thanks to Star Decals for the samples www.star-decals.net
