Article about: Hi, This decal is on a 66 (possibly CKL) M42 - photo isn't the best as it was taken at night without flash - I will try to get better daylight photos. Thanks Terry

    dont like this decal the runes look bad to me. but wait for more imput from other members. there should be more of a break at the bottem border not rounded.

    I agree with Geelong, the runes are a strange shape, very pointed and there is a rounded bottom to the decal. I would call it bad at this stage

    Terrible fake. I don't think this one made to deceive.

    The classification of fake decals:

    There are good fakes that trick even the wary and experienced.
    There are fakes that are troublesome for most.
    There are fakes that are decent but have tell tale signs.
    There are fakes that are just so-so.
    There are fakes that are obvious.
    There are fakes that are simply terrible.
    There are fakes that after a week long bender are still terrible.
    Then, there is this fake.

    THanks John, just meant to add some humour to the day LOL. I meant to say, Then, there is this fake. I edited it and then noticed your quote didnt match so I changed the quote to match, thus the edit in your post. Cheers, and how are things?

    Things couldn't be better thanks Doug. I've now joined the ranks of the retired, so I seem to have time (at long last) to do the mundane things in life.......like live!! No pressures no worries, just enjoying my new found hobby of Pistol shooting (we can shoot pistols here on the Isle of Man) Been a long time since I shot pistol (15 years) so it's nice to go twice a week to play

    Agreed,this decal shows no comparison to known examples.If it was made to deceive,it has fallen at the first hurdle!Rotten runes and a shield shape that looks like a spade,.Terrible terrible attempt. Leon.
