.... a number from a model loco ?

Namely, i want to remove the number 2 from my hornby 08402 and then replacing it with a number 1.

How do i remove it without knackering the paint work etc please anyone ?

Depends on the manufacturer. Bachmann are quite easy to remove, an ear bud and a little surgical spirit, normally does the trick I haven't tried the sugar but it sounds like it's worth a shot. Hornby can be very difficult. In some instances I've bought the Fox transfers which cover the whole area, it's quicker cleaner and does a great job. I normally seal everything off with some Artists varnish.
