Temporary markings

Post by Klaas » Thu Oct 24, 2019 4:26 am

For those people who do not want to have their vehicles marked up with unit markings in a permanent way, there is an easy solution to make up temporary markings, based on magnetic foil / sheet.
Cut to size and prime and paint in base color and overpaint with the desired markings using templates or just painted by hand...
With normal speeds they will stay in their place as well.

I personally do not like to drive around all the time with a jeep marked up as belonging to a certain unit. I just have the blue drab hood numbers displayed on my GPW.
In this example I have used the makings for a vehicle belonging to the 1st Canadian Armoured Brigade Headquarters, which among others liberated my part of the world in 1945.

Note that the sequence of the pictures is opposite to the process of making and displaying.. :wink:
And no...not all vehicles had stars on them at that time as well.

Thanks Chance.
Never too late....you can make up as many "identities" as you want and confuse the neighbours as to how many vehicles you own :D
