Archer Fine Transfers are rub-on dry transfers, not water-slide decals. As such, they take a different set of skills to apply to a vehicle, but the end results are very nice to behold. There is obviously no decal film surrounding the markings that needs to be hidden under a clear coat or weathering, but a clear coating is still recommended to completely seal the markings onto the underlying paint. The superior appearance of the applied markings is a little balanced by the more difficult application, but once you get the hang of it, you'll likely prefer these over water-slide decals.

This set includes markings for a single M4A3E8 of A Company, 15th Battalion, U.S. 6th Armored Division.
