Star Decals Roundup - January 2024
Star Decals, 1/72 scale
Reviewed by Brett Green
Star Decals from Sweden has been busy lately with a batch of five new 1:72 scale releases.
Four of the new releases focus on conflicts in Ukraine. These cover a nice selection of vehicles and unique markings. Vehicles covered include T-62M, BMP-1, BTR-60, M114 and YPR 765:
72-A 1148 – War, Conflicts and Special Operations Ukraine Part 10 - Oldies
72-A 1152 – Balkan Peacekeepers #2 CanadianM113 in Bosnia UNPROFOR - UNPF
The next sheet offers markings a selection of Canadian peacekeeping M113s in Bosnia. The vehicles are finished in overall UN white.
Also included are some blank number plates and a number jungle to come up with your own custom plates.
All these vehicles are finished in typical late-war finish of Green and Red Brown over Dark Yellow.
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
