Hi Chris,

You have the choice of Modelmaster or Fox Transfers. I've used both and have no complaints. I don't think Cambridge Custom Transfers do anything covering the TOPS period. If I'm wrong, you'll soon know! Happy New Year.

My preference when it comes to waterslide transfers is for Fox Transfers. They are superb, with an almost invisible covering film. There is a good range, which are all illustrated on the website, and the mail order service is exemplary.

Modelmaster are also good, but the covering film isn't quite so invisible and benefits from a setting solution like Microsol/Microset, especially over matt surfaces.

Best wishes,
David

Check out Railtec.
The range keeps expanding all the time and they are joy to work with.
I can second the Fox and Modelmaster too. Just take ones time and dinnae rush - it is worth it. :thumb
