Paper Panzer Productions etched Casting Symbols incl. German Factory Markings
Paper Panzer Productions is a new company from Belgium which has released several unique and interesting resin detail and conversion sets for 1/35th scale models. This is their first etched set. Product PPP35012 arrives in a © Ziploc type bag with a paper header stapled to it. There are no instructions.
Inside we find a fairly large sheet packed with numerals and letters. These are protected by plastic sheets on both sides. While I peeled them back to take photographs, do NOT toss them away! These items are tiny, some as small as 0.75mm (0.030 inch)! The best technique to avoid losing the parts is to cut them free through the plastic and slowly lift a corner to release the part you are using.
The set includes abbreviations used for the various German Factories during WWII. Also, not the curved sections designed to be fitted to the fan castings found on the Tiger II, Jagdtiger (and any Paper panzer you wish). The numerals will find their way to tire markings as well. For attaching, I recommend Gator’s Grip Hobby glue as it will allow moving the item around and cleaning up excess with water yet the bond is firm enough to take weathering.
