Ever since I first saw that picture of the kangaroo on the Italian tank captured by the Australians, I knew I needed some in my army.
And then I got my copy of Hellfire and Back, and there they are, in all their glory, on page 131. Those sure look like decals to me, certainly not hand painted.
Who makes them? Battlefront?

Give I-94 a try – I know I've seen them somewhere and not sure it was them or not.

The Axis and Allies miniature of the M11/39 comes with kangaroos on the turrets. Oneo of the models that inexpensively fits with 15mm. I think I paid $1 USD each from them on eBay. Of course, then you have to use them. ;-)

John, they are indeed available from Battlefront, in the Italian decal set. You get forty 'roos in the set.

FORTY? Well, OK.

Just a pity they all face the same way and are all the same size.frown

I've put decals on backwards before… Slap some varnish and Dullcote on them, and you're fine.

John, I hadn't realised in thirty five years of modelling & gaming that you WEREN'T allowed to put decals on backwards!
But it is a pity they're all the same. A bit of variation would make them even nicer.

They're all white, so no problem.
Just use the standard Voodoo Decal formulas and seal them as usual.
