This set of decals is a companion to the books Lion & Lioness of the Line Volumes 5 and 6. It includes markings for all four of the first Israeli Sherman tanks to fight in the War of Independence, as well as eight other early Shermans that were put into service immediately post-war. The decals are printed by Cartograph, and are very high quality. The research behind the markings was meticulous, registration is perfect, and the markings are clear with bright, vivid colors. I adjusted the brightness and contrast of the scan below to better show the white markings. The actual colors are much brighter than what appears in this scan.

Many thanks to SabingaMartin for the review sample.
