Replacement for a missing radio antenna

Post by Hornet » Thu Feb 21, 2019 9:09 pm

I recently purchased a Franklin Mint 1951 Fabulous Hudson Hornet which is missing the radio antenna and I was wondering if anyone out there has one for sale, or knows where I can find one?

I've heard of people using acupuncture needles as scale antenna.

Thanks I'll look into that. I also need the base too.

Ok, I had a look at autoartspares.com , it's fantastic, spare parts for diecast models ! Sounds a little insane, but on the other hand , it's brilliant , we live in a throw away society , so at least now some damaged models can get a second chance !
