Pre-coloured brass overlay sides
« on: July 11, 2017, 03:08:18 pm »
Courtesy of the French "Forum du N" I have come across this concept of pre-printed brass overlay sides. Although this is a Spanish venture I think the concept could have some real potential.

Widening the range of available rolling stock diagrams using brass overlays is not new (did some myself), but what puts many people off is having to prepare, paint and letter a beautifully etched piece of brass. And the words "etched brass" hold so much fear for some people that when I offered French Corail overlay sides, they were always pre-formed so no bending or shaping was needed.

Could help with some of the more obscure BR Mk.1 dining car diagrams. Any thoughts?

http://jaimeartesano.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/camas-uh.html?m=1    is the link to the Spanish example.

Following the Wagons-Lits theme I have visions of a Type F Night Ferry car using a suitable donor from the old Roco (now Fleischmann) coaching stock range.

I would even second the request for ready to stick Type F Nighty Night Ferry stock.
In fact it must be a Fourgon conclusion????

Does anyone do a SNCF van of the right type, btw?

Or what about a buffet overlay for a 4-BEP as a starter? Green and blue/grey only two liveries.

There is a fourgon diagram here. I think the train had one of those unusual restaurant/dining combinations in Mk.1 days.
