A friend of mine wants me to build a replica of his 69 Dodge Charger. He has a Revell (I think) kit and I am looking for some photo etched parts for the kit. Mainly I want a gauge set, and the logos for the exterior. Maybe some other details. I know that these probably exist in abundance but when I get to a website there is no way to search on the car and I seem to be going through a zillion parts looking for what I need. I still have not been able to find what I want. Does anyone have any ideas that will help me out. Possibly a site with a good search engine for locating the parts?

Model Car Garage has the scripts you need for the exterior. IIRC, the kit has gauge faces, but I'm not sure about the bezels.

Hope this helps! ;)

Bill is absolutley right, heres the link to the MCG set:

MCG also has a gauge set that contains photoetch bezels:

Keith Marks has a decal set that contains the gauges and air cleaner decals, and also has scripts:

Hope this helps. Good luck.

BTW....on the MCG site, just go to "search" at the top of the page, and enter whatever you want to look for under "keyword"..

Thanks for the site. It is exactly what I was looking for and I navigated around it for awhile and found that it was not as cumbersome as some of the others I was looking at. I knew it was out there!
