New Quinta Studio's Lozenge Camouflage Decals

Anyone used these yet?  Wondering if the colors are close and how they handle.  They are described as thin and semi-transparent.

The Quinta studioís lozenge decals are quite nice.  The colors look realistic to me. The film is
 resilient and conforms to contours well. The decals themselves are very transparent. Definitely need to place them over a glossy white surface. My only issue is if you want to cut lozenge color rib tapes, they donít look right because of the transparency ( they turn very dark). If Quinta printed them on a white backing sheet it would be better. I donít think itís a problem if you want to use colored rib tapes. None of the other brand decals I have matched color to use as ribbing.
Hereís a link to my 1/72 Hannover build which details my trials with them:
