Royal Thai Army 1930-45
Black Lion Decals 1/72, Ref. BLD72064
It’s a very interesting new decal sheet that Black Lion Decals have just released, featuring markings for several armoured and non-armoured military vehicles operated by the Thai army between 1930 and 1945. There are a few ‘usual suspects’ amongst the covered subjects, such as the Vickers 6ton and the Carden-Lloyd tankette that made up a large part of the Army vehicles before the outbreak of WW2, and the Japanese Ha-Go as seen in 1945, but the sheet also covers some far more exotic subjects that may require some scratch-building or conversion work on existing plastic, resin and/or metal kits.
The markings are printed on a continuous decal sheet and require careful cutting out, one by one. A coat of Klear (or similar clear varnish) should be applied before the cutting out start as the decals are very thin, but therefore fragile.
