Default Semroc Space Shuttle decal question.

Does anyone know the significance (if any) of "CASEY 6"?

Thanks.

Carl named it Casey-6 because it is based on the Centuri kit, KC-6. It's in the YORF archives somewhere back, way back...

Ah so! Thanks.

The "black hole" is a black Fiestaware dinner plate. I use it for laying out decals for application. I haven't lost a decal since I started using it--it used to be a real problem for me, especially very small ones.
