Passion Models US Army Badge and Insignia Decal Set



I received an early example of this decal sheet and wrote back a correction sheet of things to be improved.  Not hearing back from them, I ordered a fourth sheet from my favorite eBay store and I see that nothing was changed.  In any case, it is a good decal sheet for 1/35th scale figures.

Yes, the word "Insignia" is mispelt as "Insgnia" and no mention is made that there are of WWII vintage uniform accoutements and graffiti.  Inside a re-sealable cellophane slip case is the sheet of decals (covered with wax paper), a set of instructions (only in Japanese), and a stiffening sheet of heavy paper.  The decals are slightly thick and printed glossy.  The thickness is not really an issue as there are mostly patches.  These are divided in to three sections with the fourth being graffiti.
