Well, another decal bunch from Art Scale Kit (ASK).

All sets came in a ziplog bag, small A5 size sheet with profiles colors instructions steps how to apply ASK decals.

        

So let’s looks to the option schemes that all decal sheets offer.

 

Also here, in the applying instructions, in all sheets (except the stencils decal sheet, theres`a real photo of one of the airplanes that are represented on the decal sheets. I really love that "bonus"

The stencils are very thin, with small decal film on the edge to prevent to maximum silvering and not blurry, being quite comprehensive. this particully case, there`s quite a lots of stencils and big ones.

***

Analyzing the decal sheets, the color registration is great and a very good definition of the details. The decals have a thin film, in fact looking very thin and delicate.

There is no indication where are they printed so I assume that will be in ASK house. The printing quality is quite good, as they are sharp, with outline very well defined. The color look quite good and spot on.

 

I tried already and it work great, with good adhesion to the plane surface without wrinkling or bubbling. No adverse reaction to Micro set or Micro Sol. You do have to work then with care and patience as they are very delicate and therefore, fragile.

 

The instructions are the general ones that are applicable to all decals, it is always important to remember the general principles of decal application. In this case, there is no specific rule for applying these decals.

 

The profiles draws contains lots of information, with side view (both side) and top view with precise decal indication.

 

            Conclusion:

As you can see this week, ASK is coming with lots (really, tons) of new decals giving the modeler some great options in 1:32 and 1:48.

Is a very good product, not expensive and that will give your model a different look on your collection and to the table contest or the club weekly reunion.

The location indication of the decals is quite good and very perceptible.

The decals as already said, have a very good colour registration, very thin, with minimum decal film, and they work quite nice!

 My thanks to Art Scale Decals for producing these fantastic decals and the possibility of reviewed them.
