I'm not judging your work, the decals are exactly there where they should be on this model, I just think they are a bit too small...



...the number could even be a tad bigger compared to the data decal (if compared with the prototype #241)

I have to admit Steve, that you are right?

The top photo looks much better than my lower one.

The transfers would have been easier to see and place too!

So is that your loco or have you manipulated my image....

I'm so impressed with Steve's re-rendering of my photo, that I've decided to reorder my decals in TT scale to see if they look better....

It's always better the second time you do it.

That were quick?

I've already received the TT scale transfers from Andreas, and I reckon they will do the job!

I will get hold of some cotton buds from work tomorrow, so i can remove the old decals and report back....

Better size, but the RhB is still a bit small?  :D 

You're getting a bit of silvering of the carrier film though?  Are you applying to a gloss surface?  Also make you use plenty of decal setting solution to draw the carrier film fully down onto the surface.

I may need to get HO gauge decals Nick!

But I'm happier with these transfers?

I haven't fixed them down with setting solution yet, as I did this at work with the large mangifier and some water from a soldering sponge....
