For a guy, like me, that builds 1/72 Scooters so often that they are like Lay's Potato Chips around here (Bet You Can't Build Just One), that sheet is going to be fun to have around.

I'll send out some money ASAP.

You're on a roll, Geoff,,,,,,,you seem to release a good mix of 1/72 sheets without distracting from your main customer base of 1/48 guys. Just your three releases so far are already more than I can build in one year,,,,,so, some of your stuff is going to have to go into the decal stash. It's great to have options when build time does roll around, though.

Ditto what Rex said! I've got one of both your previous 1/72 scale decal sheets. Now Geoff, I've bought mine via Spruce Brothers. Would you make a little more $$$ if I bought directly from you?

Under the banner of "you don't ask; you don't get" any chance of a 1/72 Vietnam F-100 sheet with a Misty FAC option?

Geoff...I can't say it enough. Thanks very much for the different / popular subjects & awesome decals you bring to the market. You have a customer for as long as you're in business. Not a kiss-up or blowing smoke up your rear. Just a fact. Modelers appreciate the folks in the industry who can maintain interest in the product. That is all.

I would like to add my appreciation for the 1/72 scale decals.

Got the Devil Dog Scooters sheet today (BTW, Lightning Fast Shipping!!) and they are FREAKING-AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't wait to see what the next 1/72 scale sheet will be, maybe a F4D or a F3H sheet (hint, hint).


Also, may I make a suggestion for a future sheet, an F-18A/B/C/D/E/F and EA-18G exterior detail sheet in both 1/48 and 1/72, I think modeller can really use one.

Again, Bravo Zulu on the sheets.

Finally ordered a set of the Scooter sheet.

It took me a while to figure out why my AMEX card wouldn't work,,,,,and today I remembered I had used it via PayPal linkage. I loaded the card days ago,,,,and plumb forgot how I used it the first two times.

(I've been forgetting "little things" a bit, lately)

Aftermarket Product Complaint.

Okay, sheet is here,,,,,,now I have to decide what Marine Scooter decals to bump in favor of Furball's,,,,,,or buy more Scooters. The second option is causing me to get "the look" from SSgt Anne.

Seriously, I do like having the opportunity to "bump out" the Fujimi decals in favor of Cartograf's printing. (plus the units that were previously missing in decal form in 1/72)
