This model was a test in custom decal making. The model had been
built and painted in 1995 when the Reliant model kit was new. I had

with several official and some custom-modified fonts. The
markings you see on this model were printed on matte, clear,
self-adhesive label paper.
red striping around the registry and the lower airlock hatches
