Usually manufacturers make them for a specific kit,allowing for the fittings and such,but perhaps they would work with some surgury

Right just like resin parts labeled for let's say Revell will fit in a HB kit with lots of sanding and slicing. Just wondered if anyone has tried these Zimm decals which are a lot easier to apply than Squadron putty then rolling my zimm tool for the pattern.

I used the Meng Panther decals on the Takom kit. They worked fine. As long as the kits are scaled the same, there should be no problem. Also, you can fill with putty or cut and such as mentioned above. 

They didn't work well over complex curves such as the hull machine gun armor.

Thanks Ron.  I made a photo copy of the Meng zimm decal and cut out several parts and they fit really well on the Dragon Tiger so this one is on deck.
