    popeye - the packs have evolved since that time, the colours have been refined and the technology has evolved considerably. I think this got raised/shown on the other thread with colour samples but I could be mistaken. The product is now spot printed so there's no superfluous carrier film. The print is crisp and suffers from zero fuzziness. There are eau de nil packs which contain ready-made carriage numbers which should remove the need to attempt to line up individual digits (life's too short, afterall). If it were the case that specific numbers were needed in addition to those already available, this is something I do every single day for the UK market particularly with loco numbers etc, with custom prices starting at £1.30. I'd need to check the artwork but the attached was what was used when revising the colour match, just to give an idea of the tiniest variations in hues that I was dealing with!

    Blackham Transfers http://www.blackhamtransfers.com/ have produced custom transfers including green & yellow snails, solid and stencil wagon numbers. Provincial Wagons are on their list of Blackham Transfers current customers. Blackham transfers are rub-on similar to Letraset and have the advantage of no carrier film, I am still working from a stash I bought about 20 years ago😄 Both Blackham & SSM will produce custom transfers which is a lot handier than applying individual letters/numbers for things like wagon & coach numbers, tare and load lettering.

    This was discussed in another thread a while back. I used the Railtec snaills and numbers cat no 5635 and the green was not correct. Unless this has been revised i would ask Steve about this before ordering any.

    I'm very impressed by the colour matching and scientific approach to paint composition and so on, as practiced by the likes of Precision Paints (or Phoenix) and others. In terms of acrylic equivalents, I would contact them probably - certainly, I would be well out of my depth in trying advise on this. I've just been onto Phoenix / Precision with a string of queries, and while I await their reply, I know that I have been very satisfied with their service in the past. Incidentally, if anyone wants that bit of plastic I show above in a photo of the old O gauge tender, you're welcome to have it - I can post it. Or maybe I'll bring it to the bank holiday weekend show in Raheny and leave it with one of the gentlemen at the ECM Trains or IRM stand.

    Problem solved! Thanks! I've ordered roundels from SSM. Next, Railtec for the carriages!

    My preference is for the Acrylics also, specifically Vallejo Model Air Humbrol 27 - Vallejo Model Air 71.047 Grey Revell 78 - Vallejo Model Air 71.048 Engine Grey I am proposing to use Vallejo Model Air 71.110 Dark Grey as a base with drops of white mixed in for highlights for my locos. Hope that helps Ken

    Railtec seem to have some Irish flying snail era transfers in eau-de-nil colour http://www.railtec-models.com/showitem.php?id=1014 http://www.railtec-models.com/catalog.php?&type=5&gauge=4mm&region=2&livery=203

    Nice find. Wonder what the equivalent Acrylic colour is. Enamels being solvent/cellulose based are a no-no for me airbrushing in a domestic environment.

    You can solder both sides as long as you don't get a blob of solder interfering with the wheels of a train as it crosses the join. It will probably be a stronger joint too.
  19. Folks Somewhere in the back of what little still passes for grey matter, I seem to recall that someone was proposing to make the correct light green (eau-de-nil) lining, "flying snails" and numerals (both "1" and "2" for doors, plus vehicle numbers). All manner of yellow, white, gold and other colours are available (many never carried on anything!) but is there anywhere that very pale green bits and pieces can be had? While I'm at it, I see that SSM now have the roundel used on palvans and H vans from the late sixties until the "brown" era for wagons started in the early seventies, as well as the all-white ones used earlier. And - what about a font in the old gaelic script for the old bilingual enamel GSR station signs?

    I happen to have a small tin of Revell 78 in front of me right now, which is close enough too. The weathering, of course, shows greys up darker; I have a SSM J15 which is (deliberately) heavily weathered. It looks almost black, though it has to be said that the initial grey used was too dark,

    I have formed the opening flap for the shed now and am using 4 x 25mm brass screws to solder my rails to make the break. I've tinned the underside of the rails that will cross the screw heads and I have liquid flux at the ready too. Is it best to solder the outside of the rails only or can I solder inside also?

    Looks like Humbrol 27 to me,all my GSR locos use it with degrees of weathering.Andy.

    Roderick of 00 Works tells me that Precision Paints now sell correct loco grey, but be careful: what they call locomotive grey is, I believe, the (light) shade used on 071s these days. For steam loco standard grey, ask them for the more long-winded "GSWR / GSR / CIE Locomotive Grey".

    I'm posting this message in several places where relevant; Roderick of 00 Works informs me that Precision Paints now have the correct loco grey. They ALREADY have "loco grey"; I assume this is the lighter shade used today on 071s. So the correct one to ask for is "GSWR / GSR / CIE Locomotive Grey", mouthful though that is.... This model has got to be one of the best scratchbuilds I've ever seen. Very well done!
