Western Comet Part 3

To finish off the model of Western Comet, special nameplates had to be manufactured because firstly, the real Western Comet was never built and secondly, the nameplate used on the locomotive was non standard in respect of the ‘typical’ Western Comet design pattern.

I found a manufacturer called Narrow Planet that makes miniature custom designed nameplates and ordered a pair of nameplates for the model.

The nameplates were then fixed onto the sides of the miniature locomotive to finish the project off. The backs of the nameplates were filed to make a rough surface for the super glue to attach onto.
