I’m planning to print some water slide decals of the EWJR and the SMJR in 4 mm scale.
Can anybody help me sort out the size and color scheme?
For the size; following photos, this would be between 3 and 4 mm in 1/76
For the EWJR Garter I have
Gold trim and letters
Grey infill of the garter
For the SMJR seal I have no definite idée; I think
Gold trim and letters
Following heraldic practices:
The light dots on the shield are Gold
The darker dots of the chevron are Sable I.E. Black
At present I’m redrawing the Logos in color and shall have them vectorized in order to be able to have high definition prints
If of interest I could have some sheets of decals printed for you in whatever size up to A5 I.E.
14,8 x 21 mm.
This could reduce the price of the overheads for all concerned.
These images may be of interest to you I would suggest the infill on the garter is light blue rather than grey. Also worth noting that in Stanley C Jenkins book on the Northampton and Banbury Junction Rly, the photo of the coach on page 46 is in SMJ livery but has the number inside what looks like the same garter - did they go to the trouble of putting the new company name on the garter?
I have never come across a colour image of the SMJ crest but there are plenty of photos on the internet that show the town shield with the chevron in blue, as per the bowling club badge above.
I do not know the actual size of the logos, I imagine that the only way is to approximate by using old photographs or be guided by the size of other companies logos.
I model the SMJ in O gauge (7mm) and would be interested in obtaining some decals although I'm not sure that the SMJ actually used them on their rolling stock.
I hope this information, and my thoughts, are of some use.
Thanks a lot Jim
I'm working on printable examples of the Garter; Logo as well as the letters and numbers used by the SMJ
This will take a couple of weeks then I'll come back to you.
Here's a sample of what I'm getting up to
Fenny Compton modeled in Belgium near to the Waterloo battlefield.
( The Goods shed is anachronic but I liked the building....)
Fenny Compton station circa autumn 1922
Thanks Jack, I'll look forward to seeing them. Your model looks really good. I'm building Fenny Compton too, not exactly as it was, I can't fit in all the trackwork and, like you, I'll use a bit of licence with the buildings!
