Hi, my first review attempt. Forgot to mention the word "Forever" is misspelled on the decal sheet. Thanks

Greg,
Thanks for the review. The weaths will allow for some really good ideas in dioramas. Do you know if they are also available in 1:35?

Based on the instructions in the accompaning photos I don't thing the printed materials fit the common definition for 'decals' or 'transfers'
It sounds to me that they are just finely printed on paper and to use them you simply cut out, soak the paper in diluted white glue and drape across the wreath.

Anyway....looking forward to getting a set of the wreaths.
Cheers,
Charles

Greg: Thanks for the review. As you said, it is so nice to see more accessories coming around for 1/48th as I'm really liking this scale.

Charles: equivalent sets are available from Plus Model in 1/35th as well.

Happy Modelling, -zon

I'm really liking 1/48 as well and I too enjoy seeing more armor related accessories released in this scale. I have been very pleased with Plus Models' products and hope they will continue to expand their quarter scale line.

Yes Charles, they are available in 1/35th.
I have a set to review, but after the 1/48th review it seems redundant to do one for the 1/35th set, as it's the same except larger.
