This item needs to be printed. Please allow up to 14 days, though often it's much sooner.
Only the elements shown in the image above are included. Any extra non-standard embellishments are NOT included.
  • Pioneering 3d transfer plates by Railtec. See this superb example of a 3d plate & crest on Woody Bee's 7mm 33025.
  • To suit GWR breakdown, tool and mess vans.
  • Typically these were cream on a red background or white on a black background (you will need to paint the roof board the appropriate colour), but the cast lettering can be made any colour you like.

  • ONLY AT RAILTEC: Includes mounting screws in correct positions where applicable for that exquisite detail.
  • ONLY AT RAILTEC: Correct radii of plate corners. The attention to detail sets a new standard.
  • 3D printing process updated and enhanced August 2021 to give a superlative realistic finish.
  • No more filing thin metal off a sprue! Pioneering 3D transfers give the correct raised detail and are preferred by many to etched.
  • New technology allows you to move beyond outdated flat 2D transfers which cannot replicate any raised detail. Find out more about our unique 3D transfers here.

  • Pete Waterman, OBE:      "The 3D plates are so good I'm still speechless. This is the end of etched for cast plates."
    Tim Shackleton
    Hornby Magazine:
    "3D transfers open up the world of finely detailed etched plates without any of the hassle and expense."
