Always nice to see a jolly old custom of such fine quality. I reckon ARD could have sold a few more of these.

That's beautiful... now I want one! Gimmee!

Will those decals ever ever ever turn yellow? I know "decal technology" has greatly improved since the days of brittle
Airfix teflon transfers, but I can't imagine those B-Cals looking that terrific in 20 years.

Hi Guys
Glad everyone likes the model. The decals are NOT two-six decals(I know Ray well and do use his artwork occasionally).They are done for me by Nick Webb (who does sell his decals) and I have the artwork files and print them myself.With regard to the "yellowing" issue, I did say I would replace any of my models using my inhouse decals, if they ever went yellow. A lifetime guarantee!!(my life not yours!!)
I will soon have the ability to do screen printed decals so things can only get better.
Contact me with any queries [email protected]

Martin

Sorry, hadnt realised we were resisting personal opinions and pandering to niceties. If it doesnt suit your views then simply dont rise to it.
I dont like the deep engine imprints, but if you do then thats all that matters. Jeez, someone got out the wrong side of their bed.
