Introduction

Ambulances in war a crucial element to move the wounded off the field of battle. Regardless the side, everyone recognizes the bright red crosses.

Contents

Inside the plastic sleeve is one sheet of dry transfers.

Review

One of the latest sets of dry transfers from Archer Fined Transfers is a set of World War 2 German ambulance markings. These marking differ slightly from the Allied, as the red crosses are in a white circle background as opposed to a square for the Allied.

Looking over the dry transfer sheet, the transfer are very well printed as we have come to expect from Archer Fined Transfers. The sheet contains 12 larger cross of various sizes, 25 smaller crosses of various size, and 5 armband markings. The marking are great for marking ambulance with the larger and equipment and helmets with the smaller. The addition of the armbands is great for adding the right details to medic figures.

One small draw back in the review sample I received is the last of wet medium paper from Archer, as putting the dry transfers over an uneven surface or the armbands on a sleeve could prove to be tedious.

It should also be noted, while listed as German insignia, the small round and armbands could be used on Allied figures as well.

Conclusion

The new German World War 2 ambulance markings from Archer Fine Transfers is another great resource to have handy when building ambulance and/or adding some medical equipment to a diorama. I highly recommend this useful set of dry transfers.
SUMMARY
