RTS Tutorial
(Resticted Pre 1948 STL, RT, SRT, RTL, G, D, B, and STD)

All transfers designed by Little Bus Company are authentic image waterslide transfers. This means that to release them from the backing card will require a small quantity of water.

The following illustrations show a step by step method to refinish an E.F.E. Diecast G Repainted Model.

The following transfer set used is RTS 175 destination set from the London Transport series.

The set provides the following options

  • A Restricted blind with the bus terminating at BLACKWALL TUNNEL or STAPLEFORD ABBOTS or FORD WORKS
  • Or terminating at BLACKWALL TUNNEL and changed at a later date to FORD WORKS by overlay
RTR 175 Destination Blinds The Guy ready for the Transfer set Making the Required Cuts on the Transfer Sheet
1. The RTR 175 transfers come on a card such as this and each of the set blinds are layed out as above 2. Now we take the model of the G. 3. Taking a pair of scissors, make two Vertical cuts, leaving three sections, as above
Starting at the Front of the G and working anti-clockwise around the model Removing the Blackwall Tunnel Destination Blind from the Transfer Sheet Placing the Destination Blind on the G
4. Working Anti-Clockwise around the G, starting with the Front. 5. Cut the complete front destination blind (showing 'BLACKWALL TUNNEL' as the Ultimate Destination) from the set, making sure you cut above 'BLACKWALL TUNNEL' and above 'FORD WORKS'. Keep the discarded ones in a safe place and put the one you are going to use into a saucer of water for a few seconds. 6. Take the transfer on the backing card and slide onto the front of the prepared model and position as required removing surplus water with a small piece of kitchen roll
Removing the Side Destination Blind from the Transfer Sheet Placing the Side Destination Blind on the G Removing an Alternative Destination Blind
7. Cut the Side Destination Screen from the Transfer Set and place in a saucer of water for a few seconds. 8. Take the Transfer on the backing card and place the Side Destination Blind on the G as here. 9. We can produce a different Destination Blind for the Front by cutting immediately above 'STAPLEFORD ABBOTS' and above BLACKWALL TUNNEL' to produce 'STAPLEFORD ABBOTS' as the Final Destination, as here.
Producing yet another Destination Blind from the Set
10. And Finally we can produce yet another Destination Blind by cutting immediately below 'ROMFORD DAGENHAM' and above '175' to give FORD WORKS as the Final Destination, as here Please note that the 'G' did not carry a Rear Destination Blind, but did carry a Route Number Stencil Plate, which is provided in the Transfer Sheet for the RTS 175. Remaining Destination Blinds, such as the 'STAPLEFORD ABBOTS' Screen, can be overlaid to produce another Destination. Same procedure above can be applied to a Roof Box RT.
