1/72 or 1/76 decals

Postby David W » Fri May 23, 2014 6:28 am

Can anyone help me with two arm of service markings please?

I am looking for a pair of white 71 on a green background.

I am willing to pay or trade. I live in the UK for postal charges.

Thanks, David.

Is this the small square badge for vehicles?

I'll take a look through my 'spares' collection

Yes it is. Thank you. If I can return the favour I will. It's for a 41 RTR Sherman MKIII at Alamein. Being a pedant I am also looking to match the turret number with the correct census number, but photos are few and far between that show both!

Hi Ricky.

My mistake, the AoS marking I require is white 40 on green background, not 71 as above.
Thanks,
David.

White 40... Ok, I will put a reminder on my phone and hopefully will remember to look tonight

Well, I don't have a white 40 in my spares box - I may have in an unmade kit, which I will try to look for tomorrow.

What I do have is a few different UK-type vehicle numbers, so maybe you could make up the correct number from a few of those

Thanks for looking.
I'll probably cut & paste some of my existing.
Thanks again.

I have no little green squares at all.

I did find one useful sheet with a selection of individual numbers (2 of each number, in white) if that will help
