As always advice welcome, I will probably pick up some of the correct yellow over the weekend, in the meantime I decided if I can paint the warning line, I can paint the double arrows ! (brave, stupid, or happy that I still have some of the grey left to cover it up !!)

I found a logo on the net, measured the required size for it off the Bachmann37 then scaled the image down, finally printing onto paper.

Using a rule and craft knife I cut the loco out to make a template. The template was then placed on the loco and drawn round with a sharp pencil. The pencil lines were straightened up slightly using a ruler an pencil, then it was just a case of painting inside the lines !

I had to strighten the whit up slightly afterwards with a touch of the body grey applied over it. It i no where near as smooth looking as a transfer but when weathered I think it will look okay.

As you can see every light in my house makes the yellow look different.

Dont think I will be brave enough to paint the numbers though !!!!!

I still feel that the yellow front and rear needs upping in saturation a little, but as you have already mentioned when weathered it all all fall into place, very clever way of painting the logo.

Thought that I would give the 37 a 1st coat of weathering to see what happened to the yellow.

Maybe its just me being optomistic but I do think the repaint is starting to look more like the RTR, different shades but I dont want them to look like twins. Its not too late to change the yellow !

And I think Mrs RJR is feeling left out, I get a lot less interuptions in the shed!
