V set "Intercity"

Another model that recently got decals was my modern interurban V set. I had been waiting for the Intercity decals for some time. It had to be done in white, so ALPS prints again. I will airbrush some satin clear over the decal to "blend" the decal backing film with the model.

This V set was built up from kits and I will make a dedicated post about it in the near future when it has the bogies,motors and pantographs attached.
I intend to put LED lighting in it, aswell as a DCC decoder. Connecting the LED wires through the 4 carriages is tricky but achievable.
There are current conducting couplers & mini plugs that can be used between the cars...
