RTR Tutorial
(Restricted 1948 to 1953)

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 RT Repainted Model.

The following transfer set used is RTR 25B destination set from the London Transport series.

The set provides the following options

  • A Restricted blind with the bus terminating at VICTORIA or BECONTREE HEATH or ILFORD BROADWAY
  • Or terminating at VICTORIA and changed at a later date to ILFORD BROADWAY by overlay
RTR 25b Restricted Blind Transfer Set A Repainted Diecast RT before inclusion of the Transfer Set Cutting the Transfer Set into 3 Sections
1. The RTR 25B 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 RT. 3. Taking a pair of scissors, make two Vertical cuts, leaving three sections, as above.
Starting at the Front of the RT and working anti-clockwise Removing the Front Destination Blind from the Transfer Set Placing the Destination Blind on the RT
4. Working Anti-Clockwise around the RT, starting with the Front. 5. Cut the complete front destination blind (showing 'VICTORIA' as the Ultimate Destination) from the set, making sure you cut above 'BECONTREE HEATH' and below '25B STRATFORD'. 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

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 RT as here. 9. Again, repeat Step 5 for the Rear Destination Blind.
Placing the Rear Destination Blind on the RT Removing a Different Destination Blind from the same Sheet Producing yet another Destination Blind from the same Set
10. Take the Transfer on the backing card as in Step 6 and repeat the task with the Rear Destination as above 11. We can produce a different Destination Blind by cutting immediately below 'BECONTREE HEATH' and below 'ILFORD BROADWAY' to produce ILFORD BROADWAY as the Final Destination, as here. 12. And Finally we can produce yet another Destination Blind by cutting immediately above 'BECONTREE HEATH' and above 'ILFORD BROADWAY' to give BECONTREE HEATH as the Final Destination, as here
Remaining Destination Blinds, such as the 'BECONTREE HEATH' Screen, can be overlaid to produce further destinations. For flush fronted RT models, an outline transfer is available.

Standard RT and RTS blinds provide further options as illustrated in the relevant tutorials.
