Been a bit busy the past couple of weeks helping my brother in law so work is proceeding slowly on the workbench at the moment! Yesterday I had an idea for a bit of recycling using some offcuts of sign making vinyl. So I scrounged some yellow, red, white, black and some chrome! I have in the pipeline plans for a rake of nse stock to run with 86401. I have already painted the window surrounds blue on one coach but was wondering how to do the stripes without having to buy transfers when I had the idea of using the off cuts so watch this space for the outcome of that one. Last night I experemented with some yellow on an IC liveried 86.....



To my supprise the vinyl streached over the roof without any problems. Great thing is that unlike paint the vinyl can be pealed off again! So on to 'pimp my APT'. Inside the coach body I fitted some chrome vinyl to the roof and inside the cab front. This allows the led headlights to bounce some light back into the cab. Some black was stuck over the back of the grills and some white over the toilet and destination windows....



Heres a couple of pics of the led's in place....







With the new lights fitted they now look like this....





Controlling the directional lighting has been solved by running two extra wires to the power car to a switch that will be mounted in the roof. The wires will have to be passed through the coach ends and once painted should blend in better. The yellow door is covered in some yellow vinyl.....

Very nifty, Dave.  I'm doing a tram at the moment and your idea of the pan. flash has got me going.  I'm off to the tram museum tomorrow to record some hooters, gongs and compressors.  The pan. flash is going to set it off a treat. :thumbs

Trams with light and sound looking forward to that Max. Right just a quick update last night the APT was finished. The lights have now been fitted to the other end and the cables have been run through the train to the switches on the power car. The six car formation is now permantly fixed with the couplings between the power cars and the trailer coaches now glued together. To move the train to the layout has resulted in another little project a six foot long loco lift! At the moment this is just a length of timber but as the rest of the stock is to be treated the same way the lift will be required to move the stock from the workroom to the layout. Just aswell the workbench is long enough! The advantages of having fixed formation stock for me is to prevent the stock becoming detached whilst out up the garden and also the through wiring of the lights. The next rake of stock to be treated will be my push/pull mk2 D/E set. I have previously fitted lights to four of the six coaches but still need to finish converting the DBSO and install the battery packs. Im also planing to modify one of the coaches to a micro buffet and declassify some of them to second class. The stock will retain its blue/grey livery and will run with my name sake 87101 Stephenson. The loco needs some modifications to the running gear and will be fitted with a flash pan like the APT.

It stuck ok Marty although it has now been removed. Today I got some more offcuts. I have a dark blue and light blue that look like a good match for the transpennine stock that I will be doing at some point as well as some cream that looks similar to the lower bodyside colour on the intercity livery.

Last night whilst waiting for the video to upload to you tube I had a 'play' with some more of the vinyl. Using a guillotine I cut some strips of dark/light blue, white and the cream and attempted a relivering exercise on some old coaches. Pics later.......

First up you will remember I mentioned a big loco lift???





Right take one crappy old coach...



Remove the underframe and window glass then cover in dark blue vinyl..



Now the tricky bit cut out the windows..





Add a white stripe...



Then a blue one...



Now the base...



Add top stripes....



Then add to train...





Then take outside for pics....



Wouldn't be a propper transpennine without the 45!





And there we go a relivery without paint that can be removed if needed. Should look good on the next video. :roll: ;-)

Thanks gents. After leaving the vinyl for a few hours I warmed it with a hair dryer and using a small screw driver pushed the vinyl into the door edges , handles, etc. When we put this stuff on shop windows we normaly spray water on first so that it dosn't stick straight away. Then the water and air bubbles are removed with a squeegie. On my model I couldn't quite get the vinyl to stick right up to the handles so I carfully poped some small holes in using the point of the knife then pushed in with the screwdrived and hey presto it worked. I then used a silver marker on the handrails and the finished coach looks like....



I then dicided to try again at relivering a loco so my 47 was chosen as one was actualy painted to match this stock. A quick flick through BR in the eighties provided a colour pic of the origanal so out came the vinyl and....



The cab front actualy came out better than I thought and the hairdryer and screw driver tequnic worked a treet! Just poped the loco and stock outside for some pics....











I still have the other end to do hence I tried not to get the cab in the pic but on the whole what do yo think?? I dont think that this tequnic will ever catch on or replace paint but for trying out a livery you carn't beat it! One advantage though is the ex works shine and putting stripes on is so much easer. I have in my sights some orange offcuts next for those pesky cantrail ones! :twisted:
