TETRA German Fire Extinguisher Decal Set (1st Run)
Make any modern fire extinguisher look a little bit better when its bouncing around in your period vehicle!
This is my first attempt at producing decals and while I have done extensive testing I still want to be clear that I do not know how these will hold up or behave in the long run. Consider these a beta test to see how well they work.
These are simple water slide decals. Simply soak the decal in warm soapy water to loosen the decal from the paper backing and then slide the decal off onto the fire extinguisher of your choice. Applying a little water to the object will help you position it and an artists paintbrush is helpful to smooth the decals out and work out bubbles. It is a lot like building a model kit. You do not want to soak the decals for too long, maybe 1 minute max as there is a glue on the back side. I have included a erroneous cut up decal that you can practice with.
The artwork for these is based on research and a rather worn original example. These are appropriate for mid to late war fire extinguishers. Several variations came up in my research, I chose the one that was easiest to replicate more accurately. The decals have silver and gold metallic backgrounds, like the original.
