  • Completely filmless.
  • Pioneering 3d transfer plates by Railtec. See this superb example of a 3d plate & crest on Woody Bee's 7mm 33025.
  • Many locos had OHL flashes well into the 90s and beyond which were manufactured separately and screwed to the loco, most noticeable by the mounting bolts, so these are 3d, albeit slightly, to reflect that realism.
  • Various degrees of fading and bleaching by the sun, and some with peeling (last columns - see image).
  • Suitable for locos, coaches, wagons, departmental vans, etc.

  • 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  • New technology allows you to move beyond outdated flat 2D transfers which cannot replicate any raised detail.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."
