Good review Stefan. Shame about the Australian part of the decals.
However,
Quoted Text

Since there is no D39273 turret in plastic, one will have to be scratched, or maybe there is an after market item available?


I believe that Tamyia has it in their kit but is very inaccurate.
So here is an alternate.
MA138 1/35 Australian M3 mid production Buna Stuart
Or
MA140 M3 Stuart Mid production Turret

Hi All,
Stefan, you ain't off the hook yet! I read your review of my decals and I thank you for catching what I missed. I'll be doing a rework in the coming month or so to correct the problems you found. I'll talk to Bill C and have hime send the reworked set to you for review.
Regards,
Georg Eyerman

A round of applause for a vendor who looks to improve his products through reviews rather than get all ####ed-off.

Sven,
As to the Isreali stuff, I'm trying to find info that would supplement what the original sheet covers, but I'm not coming up with enough to make an entire sheet. Anyway, as to you request about Yugoslavian decals, I already make them. Here's the link to the Yugoslavia at War sheet.
Regards,
Georg

Georg, that is what I call a fantastic customer service! It's great to see a manufacturer who is willing to correct his products! I will be delighted to review the revised set and if there's any way I can help, you know how to reach me (PM or the e-mail in my profile).

Cheers and thanks!
Stefan
