Peter’s been in touch with a very slick way to make your own liveries:
Having tried for many years to find a suitable method…
Firstly trying transfers that one dipped in water and slid on…(Like the old ‘AIrfix’ kits)
Using A4 transfer paper and printing out the logo on the computer (using Corel Draw)
Then using 2/3 coats of waterproof varnish to keep the colours from running (Epson photo printer)
Not very successful as the varnish destroyed the integrity of the transfer paper…
Recently, I came across some A4 transparent self adhesive glossy vinyl printing paper (E-Bay)
Again making the logo’s in Corel Draw and printing out on the paper…peeling the backing paper off and sticking to the loco…..This was by far more successful..
A coat of matt water based varnish took the gloss shine off the gloss vinyl..(Air brushed on)
Some of my recent work…
A search on the internet, soon finds the company logo’s that I can use…
The text is done with the text tool in Corel in most cases and produces a much better result..

A big thanks to Peter – clever stuff indeed.
