Hi Jonathan. I'm pretty new to all this stuff too because I'm only really getting a start now but I might be able to help you out I hope. Have you looked at the ScaleScenes website? The have great stuff over there including Roads & Paving. Here's the link: http://www.scalescenes.com/products/T034-Roads-and-Pavements Hope it helps. As an extra they also have a Car Park Texture Sheet, http://www.scalescenes.com/products/TX22-Car-Park

There are various transfers available, but my own method for lines and crossings is to use painted paper. I use Humbrol gloss white as this dries to a satin finish on the good quality paper I use for printing - it also seals the paper. Once that is dry, I cut the paper into strips approximately 1.5 mm wide and then glue the strips to the road surface (I use UHU Stic but many other glues will do just as well). The strips can be used for continuous lines and stop lines, or cut into long or short "dashes" for broken lines. Zebra crossings need much wider strips, of course but the principle is the same.
