I have an old '83 TFV70 bought from fellow TR member that had lost its badge way back. I have another with its original badge which I took a mold from and cast a replica in plastic (original is metal). It came out of the mold just great, any imperfections you might see are in the paint, touching in the black is a pig - young eyes and steady hand required. This is my first effort and its not bad (bottom picture), more care was needed in layering up several thin coats on the gold. Anyone with an interest in one pm me.

Nice job!

I assume you stayed off the coffee when painting it!

Brilliant. Impossible to find one if your guitar needs it. Maybe I will get one to put on my car instead of the badge that's on there now.
