BMB Britannia

Post by Bert »

For a restauration project I need the tankdecals for this machine. Are they still available? Or can anyone help me with pictures/dimensions so I can recreate waterslide decals myself by computer? Help is very much apreciated!

Those are some of the best I've seen, Bert!

Can you do the gold on your printer?

Could you take a full set of high quality photos showing these, perhaps with a rule on top of the tank showing the dimensions? Its not often we get to see original decals in such a good condition! Brilliant to see :P

WOW!

They are a reproducer's dream.

Use a tailor's or dress making tape...not a rule or strait etc.

Takes in the curves aye.

Hope you can

Cheers

I don't print the decals myself, we have a company in Holland which print very nice waterslide decals.
They cannot print gold, but since I work with Photoshop it is possible to get nearly goldcolor.
The pictures are from a friend's machine.
Think, I go there again, take the measurements and start reconstruct the decals.
