Captain Electra's Covid Lockdown Workbench
« on: March 28, 2020, 09:15:57 PM »
Now I am in full lockdown and "working from home" (ho-ho), the vinyls have been getting an airing, along with Bob Davis's excellent N-Train bodyshells. Unfortunately, I won't be able to get any fresh supplies of vinyls in until this whole Covid thing blows over but I have plenty of stock to play with.

Silverlink Class 313

Great Northern Class 365

In both cases I have used unpainted WSF bodyshells, painting only the roof and ends where needed. Getting the vinyl to stick to the very matt nylon shells has proved to be a tricky issue int he past but I have cracked it.

Apply a thin layer of dilute PVA to the area where the vinyl will go, ensuring the corners and covered. Wait until it is tacky then apply the vinyl as normal.

Best Regards,

It would be interesting to see your progress on this, but the pictures do not seem to be working.
