    1. Decals came from France

    they are expensive but high quality and they come with glue just like original.

    2. Liner came from Ukraine, very good customer service (Ebay)

    You really ought to have left the national colours off. There were never any DD Heer M42's.
    I might remove it, ever since you mentioned it im questioning my decision.

    Its done, i buffed the colors with steel wool. I made the wrong decision by wanting something and not following the facts. Lesson learned, and i have to say that decal was solid...... i took me some time to remove it.
