Re: Sunshine downsizing
I have to agree, the C of G decals with those kits that were provided were pretty bad. Fortunately the CGRHS stepped up and did offer some correct sets.

If the artwork is still available and compatible with the printer, cost should be reasonable in proportion to the cost of the kit. Unfortunately, much of the "artwork" is incorrect so SHOULD be redone. No on second thought keep the junk and I'll do 3rd party replacements like I have been doing for many customers.

And I might be all wet here, but my fear isn't with the molds, it's with the decals. If someone attempts to restart Sunshine a few years after Martin retires, he'll have to deal with a huge, huge up front cost in printing all those new decals sets. Never mind if there's a significant cost for buying Sunshine in the first place. Given the number of kits, my fear is the start up cost could be to high.
