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?

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 !
A thought from an old guy,take a acupuncture needle put a small 90 degree bend in it insert in the hole for the original or drill a tiny hole just above the windshield, put a small drop of thick super glue on it and when dry a small drop of silver paint should give the appearance of the antenna mount. Cut to the appropriate length and Walaa!
Guitar strings work perfect. You can get them in any thickness you like, they are cheap and easy to get. If you go to a music store, you can probably get a bunch of pieces for free.
