These are truly superb! Did you hand make the decals too or just scale down and edit photos found online? Plenty of scope for more liveries! I think the 156 has operated over most parts of the UK rail network!

Hi Mattd10,

yes, I made the decals in a vector graphics program (InkScape), indeed there is a lot of variations possible. My favorite is this one:

The decal method should also work for 3D printed models, I would guess.

Hi there,

with this post I would like to start a little

Diary on Building 11 Double-car DMUs

(i.e. 22 cars) like those I have shown earlyer on. Basically, I want to know how long it takes :) I have the tendency to try out things, and once they work, do not follow up on this and do not go into what one could call "larger scale", although this is a bit missleading in T. So, I need this little diary here to have some kind of motivation that keeps me going - I hope you are fine with this and send a comment from time to time ....

Golden times are coming, as the picture suggests. These are all the nickel silver parts cut out of the etched sheets and sorted. This first step in the process took me 110 minutes, that is 5 min per car.

Next will be mounting doors into bodies.

Cheers
Kupzinger
