Recently I bought a permanent white marker to use on models. In the picture above you can see the result of an experiment with a redundant damaged M4A1 Sherman hull, which has been prepared for painting tests.

The marker works quite well in writing names on tanks. Painting American stars turned out to be challenging -the side hull star doesn't look as it should, while the aerial recognition mark on engine grill turned out even worse.

Guess I won't replace the US star decals, but at least more tanks will get custom names without paying 10 USD for a difficult to obtain decal sheet.

alitta2Yeah, that marker seems to be too wide for drawing stars on such small surface.

Anyway, I don't know if you have heard about this guy, but he shows hot to make decals at home (he basically restaurates Matchbox vehicules from 60's that were made in the Lesney-located plant) :
