You could always design your own number plate on your laptop and then print it off. I've done this a number of time with great success, it don't have to be a transfer, just normal paper and then clear varnish over the top of it once you have stuck it on your model.

You just need to have a little be more faith and confident in yourself. You will be surprise what you can do. It took me a couple of minute to edit your photo. All you need to do is print it off to the correct size ;)

It was simple really, just open up your pic in paint (right click on your pic that is saved on your laptop and click on "open up with paint)

I used the eyedropper icon to match up the colour of your number plate and then blanked out a couple of the number plates, then I just copy and paste the letters and numbers from some of the other number plates and arrange them onto the ones that I blanked out.

You can also flip some of the letter too to create other words.

Don't forget to save it once you are done.

You should give it a go

If you need a tutorial done, I can do one for you

There’s an interesting build going on over at Britmodeller.

Whilst this is somewhat modified, it may give you some building hints.
Cheers

Hi guys, some more of the "options" for this kit, the sun roof can be open or closed (2 components) :think: the engine access at the rear door to engine open or closed :think: rear stowage/parcel shelf open/closed :think: the 2 front doors open/closed :think: there are some options I am making such as the overall colour and a few more bits and pieces along the way :think:

I've done a video for you, now uploading it to Youtube. I presume that you have Microsoft windows and paint on your laptop?

I hope this video that I made helps. You could also search YouTube more on "how to use Microsoft paint" to understand how to use the other features
