After fiddling a lot, I'm happy with the decals. Not as good as JT graphics, but it'll have to do :)

If you still have a Freedom available I'd like one too please.

None have been sold yet, it's still in the development stage ;)

There is half a dozen kits moulded up and ready to box though.

Excellent! I've long been a fan of the single nacelle ships for some reason. I have the Franz Josef style destroyer/scout in 1/1400, 1/1000, and 1/650 as well as a 1/1000 Predator class, a 1/1000 Revere class courier, a 1/1000 Larson class, a 1/1000 Jenghiz class, a 1/2500 Ambassador variant single nacelle destroyer MMI calls the Thoth class (I'll probably kitbash that in 1/1400 now that a buddy has done it) and I have a 1/1400 Joshua class on order. So you see I really _need_ a Freedom class. :lol:

Getting the kits ready to send to Paul.

I'm using the standard resin for the saucers as my gray resin is very heavy. However, I'm not used to the usual cream resin that a lot of garage kits are made from (it goes off way too quick for me and I have trouble getting it into the mold before it goes off), and I've had a couple of disasters with it (the two reject saucers are on the very right).

Anyway, I have now got enough serviceable saucers to send, but I'm sorry to say that you will need a bit of putty here and there on the saucers.
