Footy-themed livery offers many challenges
After offering a sneak preview of this project just before Christmas, here's a few more images of progress on the other vehicle in the two-car Class 170 Turbostar set. I've been having a stab at creating my own set of advertising 'vinyls', for a local football passenger service for Merseyside. It's taken a couple of attempts to get things right, including peeling away my first attempt (see below), but I'm much happier with the latest version. Indeed, the model is now ready for varnishing and reassembly, with the advertising scheme on one side and a more sober, stylish livery on the other.
Look out for this project, as well as a full demo on how to make your own waterslide transfers, in Model Rail issue 179.
