Well it’s only taken nearly a year but I’ve found time and a solution to finish off the first of my custom liveried milk tankers.
For the newer readers of the blog, Bluebell was our much loved and totally daft cat who used to sit on my shoulders while I worked. Unfortunately her time with us was short lived as she had no road sense. I therefore decided to immortalise her on Penlowry by making the local dairy be named after her.
The milk tankers are Dapol unpainted ones, sprayed white and then the livery applied using printed labels. I tried decal sheets but the ink and sheet combination didn’t work well and when I twigged the background could be white not clear, the use of a label made so much sense.
Once printed, a slot was cut in the top for the walkway fixings to be clear and then the label was carefully applied, using a fingernail to ensure a tight finish onto the tank bands.
I like the result. Now to finish t’other one.
