I opened my Trumpeter Strv 103C today to get started on the campaign. I've eyed it before, but now I have a visor. I looked at the decals and I wonder what they are supposed to say.

One says Telefax and that is correct, but the other smaller yellow sign with text on it, what should that sign say????? What is says on the decal is "Float Veiling (next line) Plase Afoul. I know Swedish and English, but what is being stated??

Not that it matters any, I just thought is was comical...

TELEFAX is NOT correct, it should say TELEFON.

The other small decals probably says RISK FÖR KLÄMSKADOR and is a warning not to get your fingers stuck.

Thanks Thord!!

I knew it had to be something real. I'll have to look again at the Telefon decal, I guess I just looked sloppily.

But just to give photo proof that I've started...

Thanks Frank,

Its been such a long time since last! I have all kinds of fun little gadgets and things to model with, I've not built models, but I have acquired tools n what not...

Unfortunately me being mobile now means I have no set times, so as to not be able to make it to IPMS meetings. Very few and far inbetween anyway...

This is actuall the Strv 103C I bought when I met you and your family at the Open two years ago.

I went back and looked at the decals again and to my surprise the decal in fact said Telefax and not Telefon!!! That stinks the big one!!!!!

Are there any 3rd market decals for these signs or tank??? Yellow is such a hard color to make decals of your own with. I also think Trumpeter should have been more careful in the decal making process!

They went through the hassle of making a model and stop short of the finish line... I really don't have the time to do anything about this...
