TOPIC: Vega Major Luxury Coach, Swiss PTT

Vega Major Luxury Coach, Swiss PTT 3 weeks, 2 days ago #1

<p>This arrived this morning and it's bigger (238mm) and heavier (554g) than I expected. In quite good shape overall but I will make a new red stripe to replace the torn sticker on one side. This promotional version was produced from 1973 to 1977 and they're considered quite rare but there are usually a few for sale here in Switzerland.</p>

A real beauty !

It is in a too good condition to touch it, imho.

I think I would leave it alone too. Unless you can duplicate the material and the shine it won't look right with plain replacement.

I have a plan: I recently replaced the cabin roof sticker on a Corgi boat. I used sticky-backed vinyl sheet with a red decal for the stripe and it looked pretty convincing to me. Will post a pick soon.

I can't get the camera to show the sheen but it is a satin look, quite similar to the bus. (The windscreen is also a replacement.)
