Very nice build, Bill. The #0872 Sparrow has always been one of my favorites.

Gordon does have this version of the Sparrow decal up now on his site, FYI.

Actually I do have the Sparrow decals.

I even have them in a BT-60 upscale.

They are on the new site.

Haven't looked at the new site yet Was waiting on you to give the all clear - what's the fun in going there and being unable to buy anything?

It hasn't stopped a lot of people.

Really like your work Vanel. The "Tenacious Trio" are very nice. All your builds are.

Thanks! Stuff I have picked up on this forum and from hcmbanjo's blog helped me graduate from 10 foot rockets to 3 foot, and even 1 foot rockets in some cases

Nice Eclipse. I cloned one a few years ago and it needs decals. Gordy does a great job...the white is opaque.

Thanks! Yep, Sandman produces great stuff - I have never been less than pleased with any of his products - decals, kits, or custom work.
