Hi all,

Although it may seem like I am beating my own drum here, I would like to announce the release of the Soyuz TMA4 patch design. See for a drawing and pre-ordering information.
I am quite proud to have been in the position to design this patch which will fly with my fellow-Dutchman André Kuipers.
For the serious collectors: offers this patch will will come from the same batch that the crew will be wearing.
As a number of us here will expect, a certain party is likely to offer this patch as well. This party is not interested in copyright issues and goes ahead and produces patches like he owns them. I would just like serious collectors to know what is original and what is a copy.
Happy collecting!

For all you patch collectors that care I obtained the artwork of TMA-4 over a week ago from a contact at Russian Space Agency. I persoanlly didn't make the patch but a friend at Johnson Space Center did produce it in limited numbers and I have a few available. This same patch will be sent to the people (that contacted me with the artwork) at the Russian Space Agency. I have never insisted anyone buy a patch I offered if they didn't like it and don't intend to do that now. This patch is made in the USA and a very heavy patch.
If has the patch also (and I haven't that they do) if you like theirs you should buy it.

All times are CT (US)
