Introduction
This is a very well printed sheet of 46 German Enameled Signs for use in 1/35th scale dioramas.
review
Clearly printed on paper, these aren't the run of the mill posters, but actually have the thick, glossy look of classic enameled signs.
Not speaking German, I can only assume their accuracy, but being produced in Holland, I'm confident in the manufacturers research.
A small instruction sheet on how to properly cut out and treat these signs is included, warning about the enamel cracking if not cut out properly. Personally I feel the cracking may be a benefit to add a little weathering, and age to these signs, especially if used on damaged buildings.


Other available sets
Other enamels signs available in the series are:
Real Enamel German Street-signs

Real Enamel French Street-signs

Real Enamel French Advertising Signs

Real Enamel Dutch Advertising Signs

Real Enamel Dutch Street-signs

A good assortment in these new types of signage, to cover plenty of situations to enhance your next dio or vignette.

I think the street signs will certainly look better than the plain printed paper ones on walls, lamp posts etc.
SUMMARY
Highs: Clear printing, bright colors, interesting items, realistic priced.
Lows: Can't think of any.
Verdict: I really like this set, and look forward to picking up a few of the other sets.

About Dave O'Meara (Grumpyoldman)
FROM: FLORIDA, UNITED STATES

I'm rewriting this in a much more humoristic way, to help over inflate my ego, and place my self on a pedestal, because I don't have a life, and plastic models are the only thing I live for. I plead guilty as charged to excessive babble, light hearted humor, and continued encouragement to youngsters...
