Six Dapol 4 wheel vans – O Gauge

This was a renumbering and weathering exercise for some insulated/meat vans. All renumbering was carried out using Fox Transfers. The Fox numbers were slightly smaller than the Dapol ones so any number change meant the whole number and not a partial had to be done.

The Dapol numbers come off with ‘white spirit’ very easily. Now a word of warning – not only do the numbers come off  easily – so do ‘all’ the other tampo printed items. This means if doing a wash to highlight the planking – all the other details will disintegrate !!! – solution, all tampo printed items to be kept must be varnished before weathering and washes applied. I used two coats and left for 48 hours to totally dry.
