Archer Fine Transfers 19 Feb 2011 03:09 #1

Recently I was given some Archer Fine Transfers to review from Saul Garcia. I'd like to thank both Saul and Woody Vondracek owner of Archer. Fine Transfers. The sets I will look at are  AR 35315 British 25th Division AoS and Formation signs, AR35213 Churchill Mk III North Irish Horse 25th Army Tank Brigade Tunisia, AR35294 Churchill Mk III 3rd (Mixed) Division 33rd Army Tank Brigade 14 Troop C Squadron UK 1942, and AR99061 British 50th Infantry Division Patches.

James,

Great review. I've never used dry transfers before and always wondered how they worked. Thanks for the tutorial and review.

Thanks James for the review...I bought a set of their vehicle markings a few years back and loved using them. I should look more into their 1/48 stuff since I have been doing all that armor in that scale lately.

Mike, don't forget to look at their line of surface details which are applicable across several scales. Rarely mentioned is that there are some aircraft oriented decals (water-slides for Surface Details and dry transfers for propeller markings and stencils) available.

Thanks for the great review...
I love Archer dry transfers and their decals are outstanding too... :notworthy: :notworthy::thumbsup
They manage to do some of the stuff that you don't see in any other medium,
so it's nice to find Uniform patches and such that make life so much easier.:thumbsup :thumbsup
Thanks again for the review and Thank you Archer for making such cool stuff.

Great review James :thumbsup

You know you taught me something today,....put the tape over the decal instead of at the sides/corners to position it like I do

So easy !

Big up for the badger !!!!:notworthy:
