Stuart R.O.C. (Taiwan) Army
A small decal sheet
with decals for two Shermans and five Stuarts of the Taiwanese Army.
The decals are nicely printed. Incidentally the Sherman markings
are the same as in Dragon
kit 7311, although the color scheme is slightly different. As
this is currently the only plastic kit of the M4A4, and consequently
the one you will probably use these decals on, the value of this
set lies mainly with its usefulness for resin kits. Alternatively,
it could however be used to build Dragon
kit 7312 (Sherman Mk.V Tulip) as a Chinese M4A4- R.
the Dragon kit has decals
"21" and "22" for the Taiwanese markings,
they aren't mentioned in the instructions. The Bestfong set doesn't
have them at all. These appear to be the ears
of the "mouse".
is correct that the top of the vehicle is yellow and that the real
tanks had applique armor. Dragon
is wrong in this respect.
Note that the vehicles are not symmetrically marked on both sides
