Anybody know where I could find some 1/48 or 1/72 scale 1970's/1980's East German Air Force roundrels and markings decals?
Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.



- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

zenrat industries:  We're everywhere...for your convenience..



Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?


i would recommend TOM Modellbau's decalsheet, lots and lots of roundels & serials to choose from  :mellow:
comes in 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32 scales.


although i dont know where to buy them, i bought my 1/72 set from a dealer at an airshow a few years ago, cant remember witch one  :-\
they did sell them at Aviation megastore, but only the 1/32 sheet is left in stock.


however, you can always get them straight from the manufacturer  ;D

on the bench:

-all kinds of things.


How much do you need? I have some from Su-22:s and MiG-21:s in 1/72 you can have.
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!


TL Modellbau (my favorite source for generic sheet and stripes) does NVA markings in 1:72 (only, incl. the early version without hammer and circle symbols):


They also have NVA style cyphers for tactical codes.


Basically, these are cleanly printed, but sometimes the decals can be brittle - had this phenomenon with some Swedish roundels from their generic sheets.

They sell through their own website, but also through a (German) ebay shop - even though with a more limited range.

The Peddinghaus stuff is so-so. These are printed on a single, continous film, which is VERY thin and prone to folding/cracking. I also recently had the case that I had just colors printed on a clear film, so that a white primer layers was missing and the contrast poor. Resolution and detail is good, but application IMHO hazardous. I've come to avoid this stuff.
