It has been a very tough ride since April. Alas, the second set of new releases for this year is finally here, plus a reprint.
D356284 specifically covers Jagdpanthers with a number of interesting markings for the tank destroyer. Jagdpanthers, being a late war vehicle (44-45) usually do not feature unique markings other than the typical tactical number and crosses. This set unearths new markings for the Jagdpanther afficionados. "321" sports not only the usual markings, but also a stylised name and kill rings!
D356285, D356286 & D356289 covers all the interesting markings for the AB41 in German service. The latter set being a combo of the first 2 sets. Whilst the Italeri kit has been released for many years, decals for German service have been lackluster. At the time of its debut, there weren't that much references available, until the recent years that is. Therefore, better late than never, AB41 builders now have access to a greater selection of markings of their choosing.
Last but not least, German fire extinguisher labels of WWII. A lot of effort went into these sets, now offered in 2 scales: 1/16 & 1/35. Both provided smaller yellow labels (first ever). Gold and Silver inks have been used, as well as proper Tan (for the tan version), plus a colourful red/black/silver example. On all the labels, there are usually more than one font types - manually extracted from the real ones (rather than relying on digital fonts available). It is sheer madness I know, but on 1/16 one should be able to notice such finer details. On 1/35, one would be glad to know that they are downscaled from artworks of the highest integrity. Thus, the highs and lows of the text line sihlouettes would correspond accurately to the actual examples. Now that the feuerlöscher labels have been covered, it will pave way from more things (still in the developmental stage). Hopefully these will be revealed by this year, if not 2021! More sets have been created and will be sent to the printers soon!

Please take note that due to the global pandemic, performances of all postal services around the world are affected. So please be prepared for some delays (could take a month or two). The delay is 2 folds (it depends on when is the next available flight going out of sending country, upon reaching it will depend on the destination country's postal agency's effort in delivery). Stay safe everyone!
