Russ Amott tries out a Splinter Camouflage decal from Crossdelta, an alternative to hand painting complex patterns in 1/35 scale.

Thanks, James. I forgot to mention that the tone on the decal sheet changed or faded slightly from one end to the other, as shown by the small piece cut out and placed on the larger sheet. Not a flaw, but just some added variation.

Hi Russ Nice review. The one thing i can see that puts me off the product is the print dots seem very visible. are they like that under the eye?

No. The dots stand out a lot in the digital photos but I can't see them on the figure on my bench, unless it is under significant magnification.

Thanks for the review Russ,
Painting camouflage is one of my biggest challenges. I just ordered this and the "pea pattern" set from Lucky Model. I'm going to give it a try...thanks again.

i have some of the cross delta modern camo decals, and they are awesome! really good, not think or too thin, mould really well into detail. make sure you use softener though.

Thanks Matt,
I have Solvaset Solution...I would think that would be OK...or not? What do you use? I'm kind of looking forward to working with this stuff. Can't wait till it gets here.
