Late War German AFV Decals in 1/72
...2 late war sets from Star Decals
Two new sets of 1/72 waterslide transfers from Star Decals, and a pair both featuring late war Panzers.
72-1 1067 - Tigers of s.Pz.Abt 509
There are 7 main options in this set, 4 are for Henschel turreted Tiger IIs and the other 3 for Tiger Is. In terms of the turret numbers, there are actually other options provided for some of the subjects, so actually you could use this set over more than 7 models, so some really good value.
A - Tiger II, 1944-45. A 3-colour scheme, but with an option to have a worn white winter scheme as well.
B - Tiger II, Hungary 1945. Another Tiger II in a 3-colour camouflage plus a worn white finish.
C - Befehls Tiger II 1944-45. A command variant with a star aerial, and a full winter white camouflage, though the road wheels remain in dunkelgelb.
D - Tiger I Ausf E, mid-production, 1943-44. Three options for turret numbers on this one, in a full winter white colour
E - Tiger II. Back for another King Tiger, and again in Hungary, 1945. This one features a partial winter white colour over the top of a 3-colour camouflage scheme.
F - Tiger I Ausf E, mid-production, Russia 1943-44. Another with choices for 3 alternative turret numbers and either a summer 3-colour pattern, or winter white.
G - Tiger I Ausf E, Late Production, Russia 1944. More choices for turret numbers, and this one in the summer 3-colour scheme.
72-A 1068 - Endkampf Hungary 1944-45, Hungary 45(1), German Tanks
