Mehusla ALPs Decals - True 1:200 Scale.

Over 90 WWII German Aircraft Crosses (Balkenkreuz) for Fighters and Light Bombers - including Bf.109, Fw.190, Me.110, Ju.87 Stuka, Ar.234, etc..

This is a micro-sheet of water slide decals (transfers) intended for customising German WoG / WoW military aircraft models from W.W.II.  

The crosses measure 3.6, 4.32, 5.04 and 7.92 mm square on plan (0.14" to 0.31"), and will fit a wide range of 1:200 scale  models.  

Although the decals may not scan well, I assure you they are high quality, crisp and bright. 

Complimentary sets of 1:200 scale WWII German "tail insignia" plus German aircraft numbers and staffel markings are also available through the decal section of my e-bay store.

Mehusla decals are Copyright © 1/144 Direct, 2013, all rights reserved.  They are printed by Y-K Japan using an ALPs printer. This is a five colour device which employs dot-matrix style printing and allows the production of white decals on clear film.  Mehusla decals are produced exclusively for ‘1/144 Direct’, e-bay store.

HISTORICAL INFORMATION

The majority of Luftwaffe units used a simple four digit / letter code for aircraft identification.  Jagdgeschwader (Luftwaffe fighter wings) used a system appropriate for combat which allowed quick air-to-air identification. Stab aircraft were identified by fairly large symbols, usually placed forward of the fuselage Balkenkreuz (beam cross).  For comprehensive details of Geschwader, Gruppe, and Staffel symbols and colour codes, try these links:

APPLYING DECALS

The methods described below are intended for mature and experienced modelers.  They are unsuitable for children.

If you have long thumb nails, trim them short before working with ALPs decals. Surface printed film ink lifts off when touched or manipulated by fingernails!

Before commencing, you may find it helpful to read the general guide in my e-bay store for applying water slide decals by clicking this link :  Decal Instructions.

The decals have been printed on full page film using an ALPS printer.  This means that decals should be closely trimmed to remove surplus film before immersing in water.

To avoid trapped air beneath any water slide decal and the resulting unsightly sheen this imparts to your model after decals dry, before commencing, apply a light coat of high gloss acrylic varnish to the model's surface and leave to dry.  

I strongly recommend the use of 'decent' small thin-bladed sharp scissors for cutting out decals. (Course or blunt scissors can leave rough edges on the backing paper/film, which can result in decal 'collapse and death' when trying to remove them from the saturated backing paper.) Cut as close to the decal artwork as possible, leaving the smallest surround of clear film.

It is essential to use 'warm' water to soften water-slide decals. Keep the water warm throughout decaling work. Only soak one decal at a time. Soak each decal for between 10 to 15 secs, depending on water temperature. If it is not completely mobile after 15 secs, to avoid the risk of it 'floating off', you can remove decal from water and lay it backing paper down on a dampened sheet of kitchen roll until it is fully mobile. Warning: unless the backing paper is fully saturated and the film adhesive fully softened before you try to slide the decal off, it may collapse!

On Shapeways' models, or if your model has deep paneling or engraving, to get each decal to fit as snugly as possible (for that professional printed-on appearance) use a decal softener such as Micro-set. Apply the Micro-set to the model's surface where the decal is to be placed and then carefully position the decal. After a few moments, using a small square of folded damp kitchen towel, apply increasing fingertip pressure to 'meld' the softened decal into the surface detail.

To avoid any confusion, using a DVD permanent marker, I number the blue Micro-set bottle and cap with a large # 1 and the red Micro-sol bottle and cap with # 2.  Micro-Clear, I mark with # 3.

To further enhance the decals appearance, allow the decals to dry on the model for approx 20 to 30 mins and then using a soft art brush, apply a quick generous wash of Micro-sol to each decal's surface. The decals may wrinkle but do not touch them! Wrinkles straighten out while the decals slowly meld to the model's surface.

Where it is necessary to apply one decal on top of another, for example an Iron Cross onto streaked camouflage, apply a thin coat of acrylic gloss varnish over the applied streaked cammo decal.  Allow to fully dry and then apply the Iron Cross decal using the Micro-set method described above.

When you have completed all decal work on your model, to protect the full-film decal paint (and yield a realistic finish!) it is essential to apply a thin coat(s) of 'acrylic' mat varnish.

Note: avoid enamel and all other spirit-based varnishes. These 'dissolve' full-film type decal paint.
