Peddinghaus decals are printed on a continuous sheet of carrier film, so care will be needed while cutting the decals from this sheet. This sheet has been printed in a higher resolution than I am used to for this company, and the registration is pretty good as well. However, the white is not very opaque at all, even after adjusting the brightness and contrast on this scan, so I'm not sure how washed-out they may look once placed on a dark tank. Who knows? Maybe it will add a bit of realism to the markings...

Markings for two Shermans are included in this set:

  • Sherman Firefly. Polish 2nd Armoured Division (actually, 2nd Armoured Brigade), 1st Krechowiecki Lancers Regiment. Balogna, Italy. Spring, 1945.
  • M4 Sherman. US 755th Tank Battalion, Italy, 1944.
