There are many photographs that show Shermans is NWE with only basic markings such as Stars, Registration numbers, And Bumper Codes. This archer set gives you all the necessary markings to model such a tank.
This set includes the following.
2-16” Stars 3- 20” Stars 3- 25” Stars 1- 60” Star
A set of bumper code alpha numeric characters. (The alpha characters only go up to “I”) So this set won’t be able to mark any “HQ” vehicles.
A full set of early war Registration alpha numeric characters along with a set of pre arranged registration numbers.
A full set of late war (Stencil Style) registration alpha numeric characters along with a set of pre arranged registration numbers.
This set also comes with a detailed instruction sheet explaining the registration Number, bumper code configuration, and national insignia (star) specification. There is also a small “Working with dry transfers” pamphlet included.
These dry transfers can be applied to clear decal paper (available at Archers web site) and applied like regular water slide decals for easier positioning on to your model. This method might help some with the delicate positioning with each individual character.
Recommendation: With the recent release of the book “Son of Sherman” I see this set as a must have item in your Aftermarket stash. You will be able to accurately model just about any Sherman registration number and bumper code encountered in your research.
