I just finished building and painting a russian BT-7 only to discover that the model came with no decal instructions! The decal sheet has no less than 15 decals, yet I haven't a clue where to put any of them. In case you are wondering the kit is the 1:35 BT-7 by Eastern Express. After an exhausting online search I found a few blurry thumbnail photos, but these were of no help. Can anyone assist me?

A large number of BT-7s didn't have any markings at all. There sometimes would have been a red star on top of the turret for aerial recognition, sometimes there would be slogans on either side of the turret, and sometimes (I'm pretty sure it was just for manuevers) they had the lines along the top of the turret that some BT kits come with. If you would like some scanned photos of BT-7s that show markings that I have in a book at home email me at [email protected] and I would be happy to send some to you.
