This is a Zimmerit Decal set for the Meng Model Sd.Kfz. 182 King Turret (Porsche Turret) kit TS-037.

The set contains one sheet of textured decals and one instruction sheet.

Zimmerit was widely used on the early King Tigers. These decals will make adding the Zimmerit a lot easier.

The decals are printed onto one sheet with the patterns in relief. Individual decals are supplied for all the various areas of front, Sides and rear armor. The turret has the most decals to ensure all the areas are covered properly.

The textured pattern is very nicely raised on the decals and looks very good once applied.

It is highly recommended to primer coat under the contoured areas especially.

There are a few things to be careful with as follows. The edges of the decals once dry can be easily caught and can peel bits away. Be care applying decals 9 and 14 which go on rounded surfaces as they can fall apart easily. Last ensure you orientate decal 2 correctly.

I recommend these parts are a great addition to an already extremely well detailed kit.

Thanks go to Meng Model for providing this set to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
