Ultracast's latest six decal releases cover Canadian Shermans.

Each 7cm x 7cm decal sheet covers a single regiment. Three sets of serials plus four pairs of brigade/regimental and squadron markings (squares, circles, triangles and diamonds in one colour per set) are included, as are weight discs (for both standard Sherman and Firefly) and two Allied stars.

Units covered are:

        D35013 - Governor General's Foot Guards
        D35014 - Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians)
        D35015 - 8th Princess Louise's (New Brunswick) Hussars
        D35016 - The British Columbia Dragoons
        D35017 - Governor General's Horse Guards
        D35018 - 4th Princess Louise's Dragoon Guards

All markings are relevant to Shermans in North-Western Europe 1944/45.

 

 

Registration of all my samples are perfect, and the colours well saturated. I would have liked to see some direction to references for particular vehicles.

These decals will permit modellers of Commonwealth vehicles to add a further attractive finishing touch to their Shermans.

Thanks to Kevin at Ultracast for the review samples.
