Kyle,

Try Elite Armour. They have the Lion with the shield and others.......

Tiger, the Elite Armour decals are all waterslide transfers. What you see is what you get. There is enough decals to do nine different tanks, not 9 sheets of the decal. The CD they shipped with tells you the different tanks you can do with the decal sheet.

The tiger with the shield is the insignia for schwere Panzer-Abteilung (Heavy Panzer Battalion) 506, the Charging Knight is sPzAbt 505.

That would be mine.  

That is from a stencil, the source is:   http://www.rctank.de/TIGER-I_6

I only use markings that were actual unit markings.

It is an authentic marking from Schwere Panzer-Abteilung (Heavy Panzer Battalion) 506, as Mike indicates.  Actually it is a tiger.

The colour of the "W" indicates the company;

Green - Stab
White - 1st.
Red - 2nd
Yellow - 3rd

It seems the unwritten rule was, the cooler the unit marking, the lower the kill/loss ratio.  Although Abt. did loose about 30 Tigers in one day, but that was because they were on a retreat in the Stepance-ladance sector in July 1944; this was mostly because they ran out of fuel and were blown up by the crews, not destroyed in actual battles.





The Abt. 506 emblem goes on with 4 separate stencil layers;

Happened to see this, I have the site address here;

http://decals.guenstigergeht.net/index.php?cat=c52_1-16-Decals-fuer-Panzer-und-Fahrzeuge-1-16-Decals-fuer-Panzer-und-Fahrzeuge.html&XTCsid=ua7fs3o2qorfgfvlurftp41846

I have used these, very good quality, be careful applying them, they are fragile when wet.

Once the tank is pained, I put a clear gloss coat over the area for the decals, apply them, let set for 24 hours, then spray with the same flat clear coat  I use on the rest of the tank, blends in very well.

I still prefer stncils, if I can get what I want in them.
