    Eh up all !

    Ive just scored myself an ebay bargin, Hornby super detail model of the Duchess for under 50 quid !, just got a broken speedo cable which i'll fix with some painted wire. What it really needs to finish it off is a set of proper plates with the royal crests. I've googled 4mm plates to death and i'm getting no-where ! Has any body ever heard of a manufacturer who may have made em ?

    Have you tried Fox transfers?

    They do alot of nameplates but im not sure they do the crest as well!

    Its worth a look though

    Good call mate, plates are there, no mention of the crests though ! I wonder if any thing else has carried a similar crest that could be "cut n shut" ??

    6220/46220 had crown crests above the nameplate 'Coronation' throughout her life - maybe he does those ?

    Fox do indeed do them , although the ones on 6233 are slightly different , im not sure it would be noticeable in 4mm it might be worth a punt

    I think that might be the answer chaps, cut and shut the crests off Coronation, tricky but i think its the only way, thanks again for for your help.
