Warning Signs & Labels
Matho Models increases their range of 1/35 decals with item 35101, a sheet of modern Warning Signs & Labels.
Matho Models is known for his wide range of diorama products spanning decades: plants; 3D printing; photo-etched fences; resin items; ceramic walls; decals; and more. While Matho Models focuses on 1/35, many of these products are suitable for other scales.
These decals are crisply printed with opaque ink upon very thin carrier film. Matho Models states the following features:
- • water-slide decals with separated film (they come off automatically one-by-one, no need to cut to the edges)
• semi-matte finish
• ultra-thin decal will adapt well to any surface
• Hi-definition printing gives a crisp result, even in the smallest details
• colors are accurate and colorfast
• 1:35 scale, but can also be used for other scales
The printed area of the decals extend almost to the edge of the decal film. No trimming involved.
Note: copyright markings are not present on the actual product. The decal sheet comes protected with a semi-transparent cover, hence it may look dull at first sight.
Matho Models includes directions for use of these decals on Warning Signs & Labels' webpage. What is listed about only soaking the decals for 5-10 seconds - pay heed. My first Matho Models decal began to curl in the water and it was difficult to unwrap it. The next decal was only 5-10 seconds in the water and performed beautifully.
Except for the curling (operator error - I learned my lesson) these decals are easy to use.
Matho Models' Warning Signs & Labels should be popular with modelers of the modern era. The crisp opaque printing, exceptionally thin carrier film, and minimal excess film along the edges are what decals should be. The only potential low is if you soak the decal to long and they curl.
These decals were very easy to use. They look great and are versatile in that they can be used with other scales. Recommended.
