These are 'Decals' otherwise known as Waterslide transfers. In all Options the decals are sold as a pair.

They can be used on the whole range of Mamod static and moving engines including Traction Engines and Steam Rollers. They can be cut to size or applied 'as is' on the models to replace those which have been worn, damaged or scorched, or to simply and quickly add additional decoration on trailers, accessories or diorama.

Good quality, laser printed, they are easy to apply on new painted metal or on woodwork. They can be applied over the top of old decals, particularly on fireboxes.

They are an alternative to self adhesive examples with significant advantages:
  • Cheaper.
  • Can be applied over the top of old signage without the need to remove the original.
  • They can be slid and re positioned more easily.
  • They are thinner and do not leave an adhesive residue.
  • They can be used to hide rivets or areas of paint damage.
  • Less affected by heat.
  • Easily replaced.
  • Once in place, if lacquered or put in a warm oven for an hour, they will last longer.
These are with a white backing and unlike the clear backed variety are intended for use on dark backgrounds.
All dimensions are shown as Length x Width and refer to the printed area. In all cases they are sold as a pair.

Application Advice.
  • Ensure there is no loose paint or rust on the area where the decal is to be applied.
  • Wipe the area with methylated spirit to remove grease and soot.
  • Cut off the white surround carefully around the edge of the decal very close to the design. You will need steady hands AND very sharp small scissors especially for the ones with curved edges.
  • Immerse in clean distilled or rain water to which a couple of drops of washing up liquid have been added and leave to soak for 3 minutes. 
  • Position on the desired point on the model. Using a clean finger or a brush slide the decal off the backing paper. If it does not move easily re-immerse and repeat.
  • Ensure there are no creases and that the positioning is correct.
  • Dab (do not rub) with absorbent kitchen roll to remove excess water. 
  • Put the item to one side to allow to dry overnight and indoors before firing.
  • For a longer life, bake in the oven at medium temperature for 1 hour and apply a VHT (Very High Temperature) lacquer.
