This decal sheet states that it was designed exclusively for use with Eduard’s outstanding 1/72 Fw 190A series of kits. The sheet provides seven different styles of Balkenkreuze, consisting of the simple white outline Balkenkreuze for the upper wings, and three options for both the fuselage and the underwing Balkenkreuze. There are the simple black Balkenkreuze outline, a solid black Balkenkreuze with a white border and the solid black Balkenkreuze with the white outline and a thin black outline outside of the white. This provides a lot of options to match the style Balkenkreuze used on the aircraft you are modeling.

As with all of Eduard’s new decals, these are very thin, but strong and react extremely well to Microsol and Microset, snuggling right down over details without silvering.

While the set is marketed as being designed exclusively for Eduard’s FW 190 kits, it can be used on a lot of other 1/72 scale Luftwaffe fighters as the Balkenkreuze styles provided were used on a number of fighters. I will probably pick up some extra sets to replace my Microscale sheets that are almost 40 years old!

Highly recommended!! I will probably pick up some extra sets to replace my Microscale sheets that are almost 40 years old!Thank you to Eduard for the sample decals and to IPMS-USA for letting me review them.
