Pin Up Girls
I am familiar with Green Stuff World but was unaware that they branched out into water-slide decals. They have done so with a varied selection of after-market sets that will help you with your next project. (In particular are the three different sets of graffiti art!)
This review concerns itself with their Pin-Up Girls decal set. There are two sheets in the package with twelve different 'girls' depicted along with roundels that could be used separately or as background for the ladies. German and Japanese 'kill markings' are included along with stars and assorted shark-faced bombs.
Each decal, thoughtfully provided in left- and right-hand versions, is printed in three different scales (28mm / 1/58, 32mm/ 1/54, and 54mm/1/32). They are, however, more than adaptable to just about any scale. Color definition and detail is excellent with minimal carrier film.
I tested the decals on several bare plastic parts. The only prep I did was using Tamiya's decal solution prior to application and a touch of Micro Sol Setting Solution after the fact. Seeing the way that these decals settled down over the raised details, it isn't much of a leap to assume they would behave just as beautifully with engraved details.
Green Stuff World products are available from various retailers. Check with your local supplier. If all else fails, you may order directly from the website, which I encourage you to visit as there is an extensive line of after-market goodies to drool over!
My thanks to Green Stuff World and IPMS/USA for the review copy.
