Hi guys, Im Gareth and new to the forum.

Found the forum/website while searching the new for model dragsters parts.

Hopefully someone will be able to help here.

Im a big fan of FIA Top Fuel drag racing and also a keen modeler and built several TF dragsters and funny cars.

Trouble ive got is that the Revell/monogram Dragsters are hard to source here in the Uk and has a result they are very dated compared to what we see in the FIA champioship.

Im trying to source a few detaling parts for these kits so that i can make some better updated models.

These parts are virtaly unheard of here in the UK aswell.

Im looking for the -

large carbon fibre bug catchers for the blowers.

Wired Distributors.

Wheels and Tyres.

And general detailing parts.

Does anybody know of any shops in the USA that sell these kits and that will export them to the UK?

Most greatfull for any help/info

Cheers

Gareth
