Nice clean build Jim, great colour combination and detail painting. I'm going to check out those gauges as well, definitely a huge improvement over my painted efforts!

I hope you can turn up some tail light lenses as well, perhaps some flat clear sheet and clear red paint as an option? I don't think I used the tail lights on my DD car because they had all glass removed. I build mine quite a few years back, but knowing me and my squirrel habits I probably have them filed away somewhere. If I can find them you are welcome to them!

Cheers, D

Thanks, D., I appreciate it. I've used Best Model Car Parts gauges on several of my builds (1955 Chevrolet Bel-Air comes to mind). He offers them in several scales, and for all sorts of vehicles.

If you have the taillights, that would be great, but wouldn't the postage from Victoria, Australia, to New York, US, be prohibitively expensive?

I just checked out the eBay store, I will definitely be ordering a few sets for my future builds, especially for the 1/12 scale kits where the gauges are very visible. The prices and shipping seem very reasonable.

I don't think the cost would be overly high, but in the current climate it might take 12 months to get there
I will have a look through my spares bins and see if they are there. Do you know if they are clear or clear red?

Red, I think.
