3 New Sets of 1/48 Decals for German WW2 AFVs from Star Decals

Among the nicely done decal sets from Star Decals these three new releases are ideal if you want to ring the changes with the super Tamiya kits available in the same scale. One is for Afrika Tigers, while the other two are both for Panthers from SS-Panzer Regiment 5 of the Wiking Division. All neatly printed waterslide decals as usual.

48-B 1006 Wiking 1

With a number of possible variations suggested, a sheet of largely white numbers, so you can ring the changes for various individual vehicles within the different Kompanies.

A - Panther Ausf A, Early, 6.Kp/SS-Pz Reg 5, Poland 1944 in a 3-colour late war scheme
B - Panther Ausf A, Late, 7.Kp/SS-Pz Reg 5, Poland 1944 a Panther with Zimmerit in a 3-colour late war scheme
