Thanks, Walt!

Good news, Vickers are in the queue
and research for them is complete. It will be a while before I can get to them. The queue is very full.

In other news, nameplates for all Derfflinger class battlecruisers have been added to the catalog, with names in Fette deutsche Shrift font for a traditional look.

Steve, I was wrong about the scale of the Sopwith Camel and Dr.1- they are 1/16 scale. Would love a couple of Vickers.

Happy to announce an island for USS Intrepid CVS-11 as it appeared from 1966-1967 in 1/350 scale has been added to the catalog. This island is intended as a replacement for the Gallery kit's island. USS Intrepid's island was in this configuration during operations off Vietnam with Carrier Air Wing 10 (CVW 10) embarked, tailcode "AK". The 3D-printed island has a more accurate shape than the Gallery kit's island and features open bridge and PriFly window framing and integrated venturi.

New nameplates include all modern Royal Navy Trafalgar-class submarines and several WWII-era T-class submarines. Nameplates are also available for all four T-class submarines in Royal Netherlands Navy service.

Good question. Same properties; both are photosensitive acrylate resin. Choose whichever color you prefer.
