London Bus Repaints and Transfers was established in 1990 when we started to produce transfers suitable for the then newly introduced EFE RT model and existing white metal bus kits. The range grow over the years in line with the expanding range of new diecast models added to the EFE, OOC, Britbus & CMNL ranges.
We focused our range on London Transport and it's successors, and built up an extensive range of blind sets, covering both central red and country green routes. The blinds are available in various formats making them suitable for use on a wide range of different diecast and kit built model types.
The range also includes a varied selection of fleet names and logos which cover the many styles that have appeared on London's buses since the 1930's.
We also produced the smaller items which add that authentic finishing touch to your models, legal lettering, unladen weights, garage codes, fleet numbers and registration plates.
All our transfers were designed in house using the latest computer graphics design software. The high quality waterslide transfers were printed using the traditional silk screen process and were produced by a leading manufacturer who has over 60 years experience in the field.
LBRT transfers are applied in exactly the same way as those supplied with Airfix kits, just soak in warm water and then slide them off their backing paper & onto the model.
I decided to concentrate on code 3 models from 2009 and the sale of the transfer range was taken over by Bus Stop Models.
During 2016 I decided to retire and creased the production of all bus models, during 2017 the owner of Bus Stop Models also decided to retire, and with the closure of their site I once again took over the sale of the transfers using eBay.
eBay was a useful and popular outlet for the transfers, but in July 2018 eBay said I had reached my item limit and demanded I upgrade to a much more expensive account with an eBay shop.
In response to this problem, I decided to open this online store and offer the transfers directly to customers, it also allows me to offer a lower threshold for free postage as I can now avoid the high eBay fees.
The aim of this site was originally to clear all the remaining stock of transfers, model parts & model buses.
However have now had more blinds made to maintain the current range and to introduce more
routes, new items will be listed as soon as they are received from the printers.
Stock quantities for most transfers are now down to double figures, with some in single figures, the site features live stock management, so over time more items will sell out and be marked as out of stock.
We hope you find the site easy to use and would welcome any suggestions in regards to improving in it, and please use our new search option
