Bridge Weight Plates

Kit #: 72096 Preview by Rob Haelterman

This set covers the typical Allied bridge weight plates for 19 vehicles (some of which are represented twice: with or without trailer). The image above clearly indicates which vehicles are covered. 5 decals each are provided.

Looking at the decals themselves, it is immediately clear that they are printed to a very high resolution, with only a very slight trace of pixelation; all the numbers are clearly readable. The only thing that gives them away as not being printed by the big decal companies is that they are printed on continuous film. Being laserjet printed, it is also wise to protect them before weathering starts on the model.
Something very peculiar to these decals (and actually to all of the latest releases by Braille Strike is that the multi-color decals are printed "upside down". In other words, the colors are printed first and the white at the end. This means that you have to flip the decals over when putting them on the vehicle (which is easy) and that it is difficult to judge the quality of the multi-color decals while still on the sheet, as the (translucent) colors create a sort of haze over the rest of the colors. I hope to be able to use them soon and tell our readers how this turns out.

My scanner always has trouble scanning white decals on a blue background, that's why the image from the Braille Strike website has been included on the right.
Note that the picture on the right shows how the color decals should appear once flipped over, while the picture on the left shows how they appear on the sheet.



Braille Scale continues to expand its series of well-printed decals. This set is a useful addition to any spares box for modelers of Allied WW2 vehicles.
