Old Starfleet Wars ad

I don't remember for sure, but I probably saw this ad back in the day--I remember seeing this line of minis advertised somewhere.  This particular advertisement appeared in the Gifts & Gimmicks section of the magazine, stacked among all the other junk cool stuff companies were trying to sucker kids into buying:

Wow, cool find!!
Alnavco was one of the prime distributers for Superior. They are still in business and are producing/selling the waterline ship models Superior produced/sold. Some of the ships I created for that line are available to purchase still!
Those masters were machined/carved out of brass.

Scott, thanks for stopping by the dreadnought! Glad to see more of your work is still in production. If you get a chance, I'd like to hear about what you're working on these days.
