4 Colour Lozenge Upper - Transparent 1/32 - 532041
A4 sheet of 4 color lozenge decal. For more realistic look faded colors and textile-like texture were added. Decal is tranparent, so it is necessary to apply it on the prepainted surface. This accessory is available in 1/32 scale.
Pasted/fixed/glued, puttied and polished model paint by base white (it is suitable to polish also this coloured layer before applying wooden decals). The decals are transparent, so it is necessary to apply base colour. It is possibe to mark off single panels by using different shades of base colour (white, of white, yellow). Then cut required shape of panel (with 2 mm overlap) and apply as same as ordinary decal (use Mr. Mark Setter, Mr. Mark Softer). After these processes cut protruded wooden decal with very sharp knife.
By this technique it is possible to create very believable imitation of the wooden surface without skill in using of oil paints. Finally it takes cca 4 hours to cover whole fuselage of Albatros D.Va (1/32 WNW).
HGW transparent decals are printed on blue paper.
Therefore, the decal does not look realistic at first glance, because the blue color showing through distorts the shade of the color.
After soaking it in water and sticking it on a white background, it gets a realistic look.
