I know from the figures I've included in my dioramas, that it's always difficult to know what to do about Rank insignia, badges, medals etc. Usually I do what 99% of modellers do and just leave them out, or if they are moulded in situ I'll make a half-hearted attempt to paint them. Eduard have come to the rescue with this set of German insignia and medals for WWII German 1/35th figures.
The set comes as a small fret of coloured photo etch, on which there are no less than 66 badges, insignia and arm bands. As you can see from the pictures, particularly the extreme close-up, the register is immaculate, and nobody is going to get even that close without a magnifying lens!
The sleeve bands supplied are Afrika Korps, Wiking, Grossdeutschland, and Kreta. There are two swastika bands, Medic's armbands, Military police Gorgets, Iron Crosses, Wound badges.................take a good look at what you get and you'll see there's very little you won't find a use for if Axis figures are your 'thing'.
I removed a couple of the arm bands and rolled them up into a tight coil and then straightened them to see if there was any effect on the paint, and there wasn't a trace of damage. I have no idea of the technology Eduard use to produce these..............but it works!
This is a set I'll be sending off for today. I can use them on every single figure I produce. Very, very highly recommended.
