      Just curious what the history or who this was from back in the early nineties.

      Thanks

      Silk-screened decals out of Portland, Oregon. I think I may have met the guy at a model show about 30 years ago, but I don't remember his name.

      Vince was Flightpath. I heard he sadly passed away. Wasn't Flight Design by Roger Cook?

      Jim Childs was the owner and hand printed Flight Design decals. Jim closed his business in/around 2003/04 and retires in the Tucson area. Jim passed away on November 6, 2014 from a massive heart attack. We were very close friends and enjoyed joint airline modeling projects. I have several of his built-ups in my collection.
      I do still have some of decals in my collection that are for sale. If interested message me for my disposal list.

      Thanks for responding to this. I always thought he had a really unique lineup of liveries and I have bunch in my decal collection.
