Minichamps windshield wiper replacement

Post by imissedtheapex » Fri Mar 25, 2016 3:13 pm

Hello friends!


So I have a relatively rare Minichamps E30 M3 Jaegermeister race car model. At some point the house keeper (I know I know) broke the windshield wiper off of it and it's long since been lost.

It drives me NUTS that it's missing this piece and is otherwise MINT. Anyone know of a way to get spare parts from Minichamps or is there a forum where people sell off parts from donor cars like with real cars? Any advice is appreciated here, while I have built many plastic models in my life I'm new to restoring and keeping up die cast collectibles.

you can try legende miniatures website. Rip off the other wiper and replace them both with a new set.

Try the "Aftermarket" links above. Otherwise contact Minichamps directly, I believe this platform is currently in production from them.
