“Ghost Signs” are the fading remains of hand-painted signs painted directly onto a wall. These were very common on industrial buildings in urban areas and could often be viewed from railways. Some can still be seen today – just look carefully the next time you are in a town or city.


Printed on quality paper, each pack has three or four signs in various stages of fading / decay. These are primarily designed to be used with card kits such as those in the Metcalfe and Superquick ranges. However, with care they can also be used on models made of other materials such as those produced in resin by Hornby and Bachmann.


Easy to use. Just cut out the sign, colour the cut edge and apply to the chosen location with adhesive after matching up the brick courses.


When adding to the cart you will be prompted for the name that you require and other details if appropriate. These are usually produced and despatched within a couple from ordering.
