Look up Gionc. He is from Italy and produces a great photoetch set for the Porsche 356, besides the cylinder head set. He also does resin (ScuderiaItalia.Lab @ Stradasports.com) Not sure if he's still producing anything, though..
The photoetched cylinder heads are available actually but for porsche 356 if i recall, i forget who makes them but I seen them on automotive forums model section.

Oh, I picked up the Manx kit today. Mine's in white plastic. I did put together the display base. Kind of flimsy. May have to do a glue and tape rebuild on it.

they are in the hobby stores. however the richfeild hub hobby is out of them so I would call ahead to whereever else you are planning on driving to.
Is this kit on hobbyshop shelves, or due this month? I'm a bit confused by conflicting reports I have read.

Ryan - Great casting! Wow! I'd love to have a set of widened smoothy VW wheels...for an eventual Herbie build. Those could serve as a basis with filled in slots, I'd think. I'd be interested in a set of stock and a set of widened or two...
I sent him smoothies from both the Hasegawa Kübelwagen and the Gunze/Mr. Hobby '56 Beetle, so I wouldn't worry about having to fill any wheel holes.
