Help Kato DF-200 Red Bear

Recommended Posts

Matteo_IT

Hello everybody,

I received today the N Kato DF.200 Red Bear, the model comes unlettered but with a numbered sheet. Unlikely, instruction sheet is all in japanese :(

I supposed the sheet was a dry transfer...  

I cut a little piece and tryed to apply but numbers don't stay glued to the body...

How I can do?

Regards, Matteo.

Turin? Where does Massimo live? Maybe he can help you LOL...


Anyway yeah those are dry transfers. Remove the backing, cut out a piece (I actually leave everything on since there are guidelines built into the transfer sheet), and use a burnishing tool or the tip of something pointy yet blunt (tip of a Bic pen cap is usually good) and press down to transfer..

Yes...

It's the same operation I made... but without success... may be the transfer is old (no good glue)?

Who is Massimo? Is he a N enthusiast? Do you have a contact?

Peel and stick maybe?? My KATO Unitram station kit had all peel and stick, no dry transfer. About all I can offer.

If it is a dry transfer, Kato USA has a video on how to do it:

Dry transfers must be new to Kato, everything I've had to date has had peel and stick decals.

The Kato destination sign decals I have are peel and stick, and for locomotive numbers usually number plates are used. But I think these are the decals Matteo does have: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10052152n/40/1

Those are not dry transfers but are adhesive backed photo-etched parts. They definitely look better than the number boards, which look nothing like the real thing.

Indeed that does look very good. Good to know this type also exists.
