Here is a set of waterslide transfers to customise your brass signal arms etches in 7mm / O scale.

They are invaluable for anyone having difficulty creating the chevrons on distant signals. They also feature the bolts that secure the arm, and as these transfers are created from actual photos.

A standard (unweathered) arm are is provided in multiple, together with a selection of weathered arms.

The brass arm needs to primed white (there is show through), and then gloss varnished (this allows the transfer to grip the surface). The transfer is then softened with a drop of water, and when loose, teased onto the arm with a cocktail stick or similar.

ONLY the front and back of the arm are featured - it is assumed the spectacle plate will be painted and glazed.

Payment via our secure shopping kart or PayPal - you can choose which you prefer once you have entered your details. Transfers will be posted on the first working day after your payment is received.

What's on the sheet

The sheet contains a variety of types reflecting the evolution of the pper Quadrant signal arm from its introduction by the LMS, LNE and Southern Railways in 1926.

The first designs were corrugated, and this type lasted longer on the Southern than the others. The Southern also had a variant (with a white spot) for subsidiary arms on brackets. A revised design with folded edges soon followed, and is recognisable by a large washer (Central Boss). Finally, the large boss was replaced by a bolt, so that the face now featured 5 bolts. These were originally painted but in more recent times were replaced with unpainted stainless steel types.
