Bill,

I'm assuming you trim the decal where those black marks are, so they fit onto the poles?

Those marks are to let you know where the decals end, yes, and are not part of the poles. The instructions show how the poles should look for both armies.

Looks interesting....I think I will stick with painting....I could see the application driving me nuts, plus I love to dent & weather my poles.

As for accuracy of artillery in WWII....remember it killed more troops than any other weapon.

"Aiming point this instrument"

PS....for VN era, poles were also green and black...same spacing.

PSS....Aiming Posts are also used with mortars

Rounds Complete!!
