Thanks Nova ;)

Gmeister, the kit come with decals however, the three choices for names only has one canon name and the other two names are from games or books maybe?????

I’d like to use a canon name but not the one supplied with the kit (Thunderchild). I might have to think about a name that’s canon and make my own decals for the name at least.

Thanks Ian, that’s really appreciated ;)

I’ve sorted the name issue with some scaled down Starcraft Akira 1/1400 decals. I’m using a mix of supplied kit decals and the scaled down ones.

I’m frankly a little surprised myself, about how well this is coming out! A few more decals on tonight-still wet and shiny :)

Update: I changed out the decals on top of the warp nacelles. The resized Starcrafts ones are a lot paler (and more subtle) than the decals supplied with the kit.
