Introduction

If you are like me, painting dash instruments inside my AFV or softskin builds is not my forte. Archer Fine Transfers comes to the rescue again with a new set of instruments for the Simca and Bussing NAG

Contents

In the plastic sleeve you will find 1 small sheet of transfers, a small sheet of Wet Medium paper, and instruction sheet.


Review

In from Archer Fine Transfers is a new set of dash instruments, this time for the Tamiya Simca and the AFV Club Bussing NAG. The small sheet of transfer contains enough instrument dials to do 3 Bussing NAG and 5 Simca complete instrument panels. The dry transfers are printed very well, showing some nice fine detail of the instruments, and should make for a great looking instrument panel.

A very nice touch is the added small piece of Archer Fine Transfers Wet Medium paper which will make the application of the dry transfer much easier and give a much better appearance. Also in the package is a small instruction sheet showing the layout of the instruments. I did a quick comparison of the transfers to the actual instrument panel from the AFV Club Bussing NAG kit, and it does look to be the correct sizes.

The only odd thing I find with this release is the combination of the Simca and Bussing NAG in the same package.

Conclusion

Overall these are another great set of instrument transfers from Archer Fine Transfers and should add the extra touch to the interior details. I highly recommend these new transfers.
