I am thinking on making (or better asking an embroidery company to make) patches for the payload patches.

Those payload patches currently offered on eBay nearly all are smaller ones - around 3 inch - which I am not interested in. Therefore I am planning to have 4 inch patches.

Before I can proceed I would like to get a feeling whether someone else is interested in getting a copy also.

Please leave a message here or send me an e-mail if you are interested to get those payload patches in the case this project will be started.

Hi Harald, I take it you mean the ISS Component patches like the STS-130 Node3/Cupola, and STS-133 ULF-5 patches?

I don't want to be the bringer of bad news but full size 4" reproductions of these patches are now available from the company in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia who make and list the smaller versions on eBay. It looks like they have cottoned on that they would sell more if they made them the correct size. These patches are not yet on eBay but are on the Atomic Mall auction site. (They are now even selling full size versions of the un-issued TMA-21 Crew patch and ISS-28/29 JAXA Satoshi Furukawa TMA-02M personal patch) for $9.99.

I would not buy these Russian reproduction patches from them, but would wait to get the real things from Jacques.

Getting back to your proposal for the production of Payload / Component patches, yes I would buy them from you in preference to the inferior ones produced in Malaysia.
