PC: Re: Re: Re: PC passenger decals

I wonder what magidc you used with Champion, they were adamant they had not
had it for a while.
As for another run, at a dollar per set, I would sure sign up for 15 or so.
I am looking forward to the Color Guide (I do hope that providing my wife

there is enought interest in the book run, there should be i nterest in

What was on set PH-133?  Do you know what PH-131 consisted of?
