It has been done........by Ian Metcalfe, builder of the 4mm Cornish china clay layout Pengwynn Crossing, based on the inevitable Lima Class 117. An article on the layout, including a photo of the unit, appeared in BRM April 1995 (I had to pop into the loft to check that!) and I think it was featured in Railway Modeller before that. If I ever read somewhere how Ian recreated the BT livery over all those door hinges and handles I have long forgotten, but it was a great job!

I always remember seeing that in the magazine and looking on in absolute awe. That was before print at home transfers as well, it was certainly a very impressive job, small advantage of (I assume) him taking a load of square on photos but with the disadvantage of the tech to make relative easy manipulation and subsequent use of them being some years away!
