Model concept: Wood Grain Decals "Woody" special

Posted Image

Manufacturer: Uschi van der rusting
Model: Wood Grain Decals "Woody" special
Model No.:. WGW - 1
Scale: 1 / 25
Price: 14,99 €
Production Year: 2011
Availability: www.uschivdr.com
Special features:
The "Woody" edition of the successful decals. In the larger scales such as 1:24 and 1:25, you need a special design to achieve convincing wood. The woods on SIDN car doors are generally created from other woods as those which we know from the early aviation. This product contains a selection of different grain sizes from fine to coarse wood, supplied on two sheets. Actually, this is something like "Uschi's finest" but for larger scales. It is also suitable for eg furniture in 1 / 35 and similar items.

Is this is a new kit review? To be honest, the description above makes no sense to me. It looks like a direct translation without regard to context. Yardstick? Are these decals? What is happening here?

I do like the picture of the happy child on the package.

Unfortunately computer based translation programs aren't always reliable. Just be happy a fellow modeler is sharing his stuff.

Right. You just have to read between the lines. "Yardstick," for example should be "scale."

Plastictruck is telling us about the new woodgrain decals from USCHI.A model company in Germany I believe.It looks to be a good set of decals.
I picked up on a little german while I was stationed over there.
Great looking woody I might add.

It is interesting - how well do the decals work? I couldn't see very well how they laid down in your photos. I also checked out the link - cool product and a nice tutorial on the website.

I've got that same '48 Woody kit as one of my 10 year projects (it's probably going to take 10 years before I get around to finishing it :lol: ). I'm not quite sure how the decals are applied, one big decal, cut into strips etc but it has a lot of molded in detail and looking at the photos I'd guess the decal conforms exceptionally well.

I think it is really neat that computers have got to the point that we can have relatively decent communication with modelers around the world who speak different languages.

Online translator programs can be a bit awkward and sometimes translate literally what is written. When I use one I usually translate it sentence by sentence and also include my original English translation. This can sometimes cause confusion due to other forms and spellings of English, ie American, such as colour=color, boot=trunk, dolls house=doll house.
Not to sure about the picture, without trying to stir up political things here, the image and the script look to be a pre-war Hitr youth type thing.
i would definitely buy some though. Didnt a member post a topic on painting wood finishes.

Yes, the artwork harks back to Third Reich propaganda material, but is actually quite funny. Even the company name is a play on words in German:

"Uschi van der Rosten" - "rosten" means to rust or rusting. So it's Uschi of the rusting. I bet Dr. Crankenstein gets the pun.

The decals look superb. The company seems to make quite an extensive range of detailing materials primarily for the military modellers.

Thanks for checking it out, my friends. Uschi is a great model builder so the products he is putting out are just as outstanding.

I know at least one member who used these on a build, unfortunately I cant remember who.

Is anyone familiar with them? I understand the transparent design, but is it pressure sensitive printed on clear, a printed design on a carrier that is removed, a waterslide?
