I recently purchase some decals, 1/35 Passion models german equipment decals. What is the difference between the white panzerfaust decals and the yellow ones?

Panzerfausts were all painted Dunkelgelb. You can use either the yellow or white decals:

If you mean the the firing instruction marking, the difference in color is merely a supplier variant.

Although not common, the Panzerfaust was indeed produced in a dark green color and it had yellow text on the tube. The dark yellow types normally had red text on the tubes but some had black markings. The firing instruction (on white or dull yellow) was positioned on the warhead.

Hi Leonard,

Yes these were seen in dark green finish as well. I suspect that it was merely one of the makers using up supplies of existing paint.
