I very much appreciate MCI and his effort to re-produce decals that would otherwise be impossible to find, but experience has taught me that, in certain cases, compromises have been made. Perhaps the original manufactures of some decal sets had access to a range of colors that are difficult or impossible to precisely reproduce today. Anyway, I will remain a loyal MCI customer.

Sorry Derek for drifting off-topic. :oops:
