   I actually wrote to them about the poor paint scheme they produce on
PC equipment.  I told them of the same problems:  poor herald and
lettering.  I told them that Microscale makes the herald and lettering
perfect.  They in turn told me that they copy their paint jobs from
Microscale.  I basically told them this was B.S. as the difference is
quite noticeable.  I then told them I know of a place that has original
artwork created for the PC to make the correct heralds and lettering
(that would be through Jerry's homepage).  Paul at Atlas told me to send
them a copy to correct this.  So, Jerry, can you send Atlas a copy of
those diagrams?
