Howdy fellow Model builders

I just recently bought a Figure Set from Stalingrad: US. Army Airborne and German Soldiers (Operation Varsity) 1945.

Really high end Resin Figures. But all the Insignia`s on the Uniforms are molded on. I found some Decals in 1/35, but they are all from China and with the recent crisis... i don't know when or if they will arrive! Does anyone know a Internet-Shop that sells these Decals?? Or maybe even better a set of Photo-Etch Insignia`s.

thanks for your help.

cheers
David

Try Archer Fine transfers, they just released a brand new set of rank insignia and organizational patches. You can find them on line.

Those are very nice figures, although once again (all resin companies miss this) you'll need to work the heels on the boots to angle back on their front edge instead of being squared off. But I digress...

You'll need six 101st decals, and six US flags. Send me your address and I'll slip them in an envelope for you.
