RCD Model Decals
« on: August 19, 2014, 10:43:07 »
Wasn't sure exactly where I should put this query, but Mil History seemed appropriate.  I build scale models as a hobby and am nearing completion of a Staghound Mk. I vehicle.  The model came with markings for numerous British Regiments, and the XII Manitoba Dragoons. I have searched every model website I can find, Googled like a madman and have come up empty handed in my search.  I am looking for RCD markings appropriate to the Staghound.  The best site I came up with was a German company, peddinghaus-decals, but after an exhaustive search through their online catalogues, I found none.

Are there any model builders out there who can direct me to a supplier who will have RCD decals of decent quality?  Many thanks in advance, and Mods, if I put this is in the wrong forum, I apologise and understand if it gets moved to wherever you deem appropriate.  Many thanks to anyone who can help.

Here's the scale modelling section of army.ca:

You can use the Arm of Service marking from the 12 MD; they had the same white 44 on a green-over-blue as the RCD:



The difference is the Corp markings:

1 Cdn Corps, to which RCD Stags belonged to, looked like this:


2 Corps (which I believe is the formation marking included with the model) look like this:


This is the decal sheet you want from Archer... you're gonna have a few left over  :nod:


I think the Sqn insignia would be the same between the two units. Serial numbers would be different, but that a whole other level of OCD.
It's not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what's required.
