Replica Railways Waterslide Transfers.
Having run out of HMRS Pressfix lining, the product seen to the left was purchased some time ago after discussions with Godfrey on the Railwayana stand- at Romsey I think.
Finely printed, I think they are OK for 3mm scale. One thing I did find is that it is best to cut through the backing completely not, as I found out, try and peel the transfer off after partly scoring the backing. Also use a sharp knife!
The backing was soaked with a Reeves Number 8 Nylon Hair brush (for those who like technical details). The transfer released evenly from the backing and then it is just (did I say just?) a matter of teasing the lining into place.
How I wish I still had a steady hand!
Still-off to finish what I have started so more anon!
Note-I have no connection with Replica Railways other than a very pleased customer.
