This is the third part of a series of A-20 Pin-Up Nose Art sets of decals in 1/72 Scale. I was going to do a product review only but once I saw how nice these were I broke out an old Matchbox A-20 from my stash to use these in a real build.

In the packet is:

  • 2 x sheets of decals (one is stencils)
  • 1 instruction sheet

The decals look very good when removed from the packet. I did have some issues with a few of the decals breaking up when being placed on the model. I did manage to use all the ones I needed with a little patience and rebuilding the broken ones. I do recommend leaving them in the warm water a little longer than you would normally and also leave then on a dry paper towel for a while before using. This I found reduced the breaking.

Summary

These are very attractive marking and very good, just be careful using them

The FAUN L900 was in production from 1937 to 1939. They were primarily used by the German Army as tank transporters. The heavy Faun L900 with the 10to sd.Ah. 115 Trailer could transport two Panzer I's or II's and the other early war smaller and lighter tanks and AFV's. The heavy Faun L900 had a max cargo capacity of 10,000 kg and at the end of the war they were still in service. The large numbers of these vehicles that were available in the post-war period combined with their utility meant that quite a few were converted for civilian use. This new release from Das Werk covers the hard top version of this vehicle.

The AMMO range of acrylic paints for figures has recently been expanded to include two new sets of paints specifically designed for the late war German Eichenlaubmuster (‘Maple Leaf’) and Erbsenmuster (‘Pea Dot’) camouflage schemes, the latter of which is the subject of this review.

Opening the box reveals a set of six industry-standard 17ml. ‘eyedropper’ style bottles of high-quality acrylic paint from their Ammo line. The assumption is that the paint set would serve as a one-stop shop for producing the intricate uniform pattern that bears its name. These complex schemes have been a favorite for military figure painters and armor modelers alike.

From the Manufacturer’s Website

The M44 Dot Pattern - This set includes the colors required to paint the distinctive and complex German Erbsenmuster (‘Pea Dot’) camouflage pattern, first delivered to the Waffen-SS in 1944.
