Looking for tips on restoring a Raleigh Head Badge, pics show a) what it should look like, and b, mine.
Looks like only the Heron was embossed, the rest is flat, design was painted or transferred on and its almost all worn off now.
I'd happily purchase a good replacement but I'm not seeing this version come up for sale in half-decent condition

You could repaint it using Humbrol Enamel Paint using Tamiya Masking Tape to mask off the lines, paper masking tape would be useless.

Or just polish the head badge and lacquer it.

Or you can ask this fine fella! He has loadsa badges...
