Hmmm I think you are correct, sir. I also don't like the positioning. Looks way off center. Probably an amateur attempt at applying a false decal. Too bad but it sounded too good to be true.
Datrus that decal really stands out as a fake. Lettering, dots on the top of the wings are the big give always. The decal on chris's is a little more convincing. I'll have to look more at it on a computer screen. Just got a smart phone and trying to look at decals is making me feel not so "smart."
Much harder than I thought it would be. Details are good on these phones until you start to zoom in, then they get distorted. I'll add my good luftshutz decal when I can get on a computer.
I have been "nerding" with a lot of decals the last 45 min or so, and i begin to doubt this decal is good. I do not know how many variations there is of this decal, but none of the good ones look like this one. Ade has a good one, and there is some differences between them. I think a clearer pic would be needed, preferably without flash. Maybe it's not really needed
Ive got to admit that when i first saw the decal i didnt think it was a true application error, its a post war error and i would think more recent than aged, you can accept a relatively small error, either a crease or a small slip but this one is pretty big and i would think if done in period it would have been corrected much better, sorry Chris, the helmets nice but is spoilt with the fake decal
Dont give up Chris, they are out there and for reasonable prices, Ill pm you
