Chris's Bespoke Transfers

I design & produce bespoke waterslide transfers/decals for modellers of a variety of vehicles including aircraft, trucks, and trains.

Bespoke Nameplates

If you have a model and need a plate it is likely I can help you. These types of plates normally have filled lettering and text style and wording of your choice. However I can also make them with raised lettering. 

These plates are deep engraved on brass plate and the raised
lettering gives a good resemblance of a cast brass plate.
Finished in BLACK or RED gloss or just primed for you to do
the final painting.

I have been working for just short of forty years as a traditional coach painting and coach builder in the motor vehicle industry.  Much of that time has been working in Classic and Vintage restoration. 

As my interest turned to Model Engineering, I decided to go into 16mm loco painting. I have been painting locos in gauge 1, gauge 3 and up to 7 ¼ locos [ see photos above. ] I paint them, like Roundhouse, in two pack paint which is hard wearing and heat resistant. I have found conventional paint comes off from gas spills when filling.  I also repair loco metal work including repairing soldering (silver soldering, TIG and MIG  welding for larger projects), straightening panels and riveting etc.  I enjoy helping people to get their pride and joys back to their best, so give me a call to discuss your project.  Graham Pearce 07802803159
