Unless he has decals made with an Alps printer, you probably won't be satisfied with them. The only other way to get white is $creen printing. If they are laser or inkjet, you will end up with crappy white decal paper or decals with another color substituted for white.

I have built 3 of their kits.
They were all up to expectations I have of kits.

I have bought their kits and have had no trouble with them.
I have corresponded with the ower and he corresponded in a reasonable time.

The kits are of top-notch quality and arrived quickly.
This was about 3-4 years ago before all the hullabaloo that does not concern me.

But you haven't flown rockets for over three years, much less built anything. I'd rather hear from people who are actually in the hobby.

I did not say anything about the quality of the kit. I only stated that the Andromeda decals will have to be Alps printed due to having white in them or they will not look right.
