Thanks for the review Bill.
How thin is the paper they are printed on- I'm not looking for an exact measurement

Btw there's a typo in the first paragraph you might want to change

Is Uncle Same telling civilian men "I Want YOU" fundamentally different...

Bill, good review for a needed set. There aren't as many Italian posters around like American or German, so this will find a place in my growing pile of posters.

Hey Pat, if the paper is too thick, use an erraser to errase some of the paper backing. This will allow the building surface to pop through. On my R/R dio I did this and the brick wall impression came through nice.

As thin as a bee's bum? Seriously, it's scale to a heavy poster paper, but a little abuse should make it work in any situation.

You never heard of Uncle Sam's boring twin, Uncle Same?

Badda-boom!

Couldn't resist. Thanks for pointing that out, Mate. Anybody whose avatar has steam coming out of his ears has to have a good sense of humor.

These are printed on 20 lb. bond paper which is .004" (.102 mm) thick. Inks are waterproof so you can soak them in a mixture of water and white glue and adhere them to uneven surfaces.
