Devonport Wagon Transfers

PIC-006 • by Planet Industrials
These waterslide transfers are custom drawn for use in 1:76 scale, but they may find use in other scales. The pack includes two sets of markings (enough for one vehicle) designed to represent van 58 from Devonport which can be assembled from either the Ratio or Parkside GWR Gunpowder or Iron Mink van. They can also be used by re-arranging the number, to represent other wagon styles, a 7 plank is shown.
(Our example models are finished in Humbrol Satin 123).
    These transfers can easily be scratched, be careful when handling. The carrier film is very thin for fidelity but this mean they can crinkle, curl or break if misused.

    We recommend applying these transfers over a smooth glossy surface, gloss varnish is ideal. Cut carefully around each transfer carefully to minimise the amount of carrier film. Soak in cold water, usually less than one minute. Microscale 'Microset' or equivalent can be used to improve adhesion. We recommend applying a sealing coat of lacquer or varnish to protect the transfer after it is dry.

    Avoid exposing the decals to excessive solvent thinners during finishing (e.g. during weathering) as this can dissolve the ink.
