I have a narrow gauge diesel I have yellow bufderbeams on and I am a bit nurvous to try! I once tried with a Lima class 08 via masking and brush painting and I was not really happy with the results.

Not an easy task. You have done very well.


I would offer to do them for you but after these I need a break from trains going to crack on with a helicopter next.

So I'm calling this done, the build wasn't a bad build but I'll never you Railtec decals again I didn't get on with them at all really.

After the wasps decals the simple loco number and the side logo where even worse so much so that the original number I was going to use just got destroyed and so I ended up having to use a different number. Both the number and logo just would not sit down and kept curling up on all sides. In the end I ended up having to use some vallejo clear window glue to help sit them down the following day.

That really does look good!
Thank you for the offer, but I am ok. I like to be able to do things myself if possible. It gives a consistant look. Your excellent abilities may stand out next to mine on my layout.
