1:48th Decal Sheet BD-48001
Review by Terry Ashley
This is the first 1:48 release from Bison Decals continues the Tiger
Is from the 1:35 decal series with this sheet having markings for thirteen
Tigers from Early to Late Production that can be used on either the Tamiya
or Skybow Tiger I kits.
The quality of the printing is again excellent with good
colour register and thin carrier film although not quite as thin as previous
sheets printed by Microscale but cropped close to the edge of the printed image
for easy application and should adhere well with a bit of decal setting solution.
The sheets includes the Divisional markings, Unit insignia and Tactical
markings for the featured vehicles with two A4 sized instruction
sheets with three view black and white drawings of the vehicles showing the
location of the various decals as well as a list of useful reference books.
The side view illustrations are larger than on previous sheets to better
show the decal locations.
The images below and also available on the Bison
Decals web site illustrate the markings included on the sheets
as well as serving as additional painting guides.
