New Guinea and Vietnam, 2 new Decal sets
...in 1/72 from Star Decals
Star Decals, 2 more 1/72 Decal Sets.
Two recent additions to the range of 1/72 sets from Star Decals. This time we have details of two pacjs that focus on different periods of warfare in the Far East. The first is for SP artillery from the US Army and used in Vietnam. There are some nice kits available these days for the US M109 155mm artillery piece and this allws for 4 models, plus one other for the earleir M108, which has a smaller 105mm gun. Both have markings schemes appropriiate to the Vietnam War, a couple of them being quite colourful. Then at the same time, back to WW2 and a set for Australian operated armour in the Far East.

Two more interesting sets in this marvellous range of alternative markings, ideal for resin models as well as plastic kits. Quite fine, but conventional waterslide decals (transfers) and they come with a colour page showing the positioning for the individual markings that are provided.
Thanks to Star Decals for our examples.
