I like the Texas car. In small scale, not life size.

I purchased a resin body kit of a 1963 Plymouth Belvedere Station wagon.
When I got it, discovered that the left front axle mount was only partially there when it was molded.
Seller offered me my money back but had no more kits of this model so I kept it. Now, need to fix molding blem so that
I can put and hold a front axle it it. I have a piece of scrap brass from a slot car chassis that I can glue in place and drill, but then I
will need to use a straight steel model axle of the correct length. Anybody have any spares that they can spare?

Probably woulda been better to start a new thread, rather than hijack this one, but you could always do a crashed station wagon.
Some of my best die cast are wrecked vehicles. Just a thought...

Maybe. But I won't be able to look until after the weekend. I'll have to paw through the parts box.

Thanks Donnie 3.0. This forum is a bit sleepy, isn't it?

Hey, I'm not nit-picking, just thought you might have gotten a better response with a dedicated thread.
And I did make a recommendation on what to do with your model.
