I've been sorting through some storage boxes to see what old stock I have that could be useful for my layout. I came across a number of Ratio and Cooper Craft kits that I must have built around 25 years ago for a static display. Considering my skills at the time they are not too bad and I'm going to try and salvage them for use on Much Murkle.

This is a picture of two typical wagons.




They will need the couplings changing to the DG's that I'm using and a few details sorting out like a new tie bar between the axle boxes on the wooden van but apart form that they run and look ok......apart from transfers. They have aged badly and show that hideous film around the decal and in some cases like on the metal van have peeled off, which in my eyes is a good thing because they have to go.

The question is....... How do I remove the transfers without damaging the paint. I've never tried to get these off before so will a good rub with a cotton bud saoked in water do the trick or will I have to scrape them off with a scalpel, or is there a better way.

I know some bright spark will have the answer :lol:

Thanks

Nick if they have not been sealed with varnish, then yes a soak in warm water should lift them,
worth a try at least.
