Interesting.

I hope you take this in the mirthful spirit it is meant, but every time I see the CT Safari ship I can't help but hear the theme to "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea"

Looks good! What was your source for the decals?

custom made, converted from online jpg to a vector file format and then sent to a bespoke decal printer.

Note also the warning signs written in authentic Vilani

(the ejection seat text is too small to pick up that its not in English)

Lesson for anyone doing custom decals.... the resolution of decal-paint is far far less accurate than the digital file you create. At 8mm dia the white ring between an imperial sun and the 'rays' is almost lost. So consider that a minimum size for this sort of thing.

Very impressive indeed. Those decals are (to quote my son's friend) "sweeeet."

Very nice work.

Have you thought of offering some at a smaller scale to match some other figures?

My Air Rafts are at 15mm scale... in theory they can be made larger.

With regards my starship models they are designed based on the absolute minimum wall thickness and maximum detail at that scale.

Basically its easy to make things larger.. smaller would require complete structural redesign.
