Foredeck decal

Hi all, a follow up long overdue relating to decals. I have recieved two sets from Geoff in Australia. The foredeck decal is a little too long by a few mm but my mistake and sure it will be corrected if Geoff decides to produce more, the aft decal fits the 1/200 plan so should be no problem. Underwater photos show Bismarck had these swaztikas in place when sunk but were most likely painted over when in action, I can't believe they would have been covered with painted canvas or similar when at sea as it would have presented a serious hazard to operations.
