You do for my (user) namesake! Didn't emerge I didn't emerge until 1949... IN INTERNET FORM ONLY!!!

 

Besides, I'm rather fond of the rebuilds... now do I get excomunicated to Slough?

I didn't realise it was that late!!

 

I would never sentence someone to be excommunicated to Slough, I think that is banned by the Geneva Convention as cruel and unusual punishment!!! :jester: :jester:

Oh thank you Sir, thank you! I shall vow never to mention those two hateful words ever again... unless provoked, and that's a warning!

Well, the L is progressing, with the firebox done in rough. Not convinced about the front curves yet, but I'll post pictures later.

I just used normal paper,

That’s one way to get past the rough finish of 3D printing...

but would be interested to see results with white transfer paper!

...although that wouldn’t be!

The paper does do a good job of that... You've given me an idea Simon!

Any and all of them!!! I enjoy doing them, but where someone else has already done them I'd rather use those!

 

For now though, here's the ammended R1 Sheet, colour matched from the terrier, both for green and Indian red. Interestingly they match up well with pictures I took of No.263 before Hornby cunningly repainted her to match their model... :jester:

Thank you so much for these! I've given these a try and they come up beautifully on my work's colour laser printer. Certainly a huge step forward from the South Eastern Finecast transfers I had used before! However, they didn't seem to print at quite the right size for me - the tank lining and the bunker lining were a little too large. I only printed onto plain paper, so I'll have to try re-sizing slightly, but they certainly give an excellent finish.

Is there any chance you could be persuaded to modify the sheets slightly and provide two bunker sides with no numbers? (There would appear to be space) I've been using the Roxey Mouldings etched brass numbers, as I like the relief they give, but they don't look right over the printed ones.

These photos show the difference from just changing the tank-side lining.

Glad to see you like them!

 

I'll have to look at the scaling on that: they seem to fit my R1, but maybe I used a smaller scaled one. I did do two versions, small and large, so perhaps I used the small one on mine.

 

I'll try again! And I'll add some un-numbered ones for you as well.

Try the second page of the original sheets: the artwork is slightly smaller. I've attached them here:
