Long time lurker but had to add to this topic.
I have a reissue of this kit and found a site for the photo etch and some resin conversion parts
I ordered the D8K cab option 2 with D8K conversion set, the photo etch,
and the 25 degree blade.
They are located in Quebec, Canada so all prices are in Canadian dollars.
There are several other interesting items here too.
I will post some pics when everything arrives.
Definitely need to get those Cat decals.
