I can only image what dealers in Japan are getting them for. I'd like to see the business model for the guys who are buying kits bulk and breaking them down for individual parts sale.

Great job on the Clods - always nice when those years of hoarding parts actually pays dividends

Looks absolutely beautiful. Great job on the build. Looks wonderful sitting next to its stable mate.

eBay. Plenty of stuff out there, just need to be patient and wait for the right parts at the right price. Lot of folks listing things looking to make a fortune, but good vintage stuff comes up often at the right price. Second would be Craigslist and local flea markets/garage sales.

I'll try to remember to check when I get home, but I may have both of those trees. I bought a bunch of stuff years ago and put it in a box.

I'd seriously like to know, what is the point of using photo hosts if those hosts aren't going to allow linking to your albums. :roll:

BTW, this isn't a jab at 132, it's disgust at useless "services". But, I could easily turn this into a jab at 132 if we like. :twisted: :wink: :wink: :mrgreen:

So you can't see the pics? I can see them, but that may be because they are my pictures with my link. See if this works out better.

Much better!

Yeah, your first efforts were photobucket's standard "image blocked" image.
