Hi All..... I am a new member of this forum, building 1:24 scale Rolls-Royce motor cars and based in England. Currently building and modifying ( heavily ) a 1962 Silver Cloud series 11 which will be a 1957 Silver Cloud series 1. Having been in touch with Minicraft Models in Elgin, Illinois they were very good at sending me a replacement windscreen part, for the damaged item that was in the box on delivery to UK. However, now that I am asking if I can order several more kits directly from Minicraft, they are telling me that this particular model number 11209 is discontinued and they have none left. So far I have only been able to source this model through Amazon and Ebay. Does anyone know if there is a way of purchasing these kits, other than using Amazon or Ebay? I have done a lot of research about Hubley, Entex, Academy and Minicraft recently, and there are no suppliers of these kits in the UK. By using an Italeri 1934 Rolls-Royce Phantom 11 donor kit, also 1:24 scale, I was able to build a straight-six engine for the Silver Cloud to replace the V8 engine supplied in the Minicraft kit. That has been very successful, if rather tricky to achieve ( much cutting away of the engine bay floor ! ). Many thanks, especially to forum members in the United States David
