Kagero
website: www.kagero.pl email:

Most of the books in the Photosniper (and some other) series of the Polish company Kagero contain a decal sheet in various scales. In general these are very well done (by Techmod). Sadly enough, sometimes they are packed in such a way that the decals get stuck to the plastic that holds them.
We have listed all Kagero books, even though it is possible some of them do not have a 'bonus' decal sheet.
