#402, "anyone have 350 minicraft funnels or masts?"
The new model im doing is by far the worst out of the three i've done in terms of molding! Not too mention that somehow the foremast and most pipes on the funnels are broke and bent. I am asking if anyone out there has an old model that got shelved or spare parts that i could buy. the masts, the funnel halves with the pipes and by any chance some photo etched parts. i have some leftovers from my first models but i need a few pieces here and there and didnt want to buy the whole set again if i didnt have to. I need the compass tower and stairs, prop spanners, long stairs, maybe ten benches, the two skylights behind funnel 1 and on the forecastle. Or maybe even a link to find brass masts or any other after market bollards, bits and goodies besides toms and gmm? Thanks!

Did you get what you need? I've got a whole kit that I'm probably going to scrap.
Much of the painting on the kit has crazed. I originally painted this 10-11 years ago when I first got the kit, and the white paint faded to yellow. Then I moved out of my parents' house, left the kit behind and proceeded to spend most of my 20's drinking beer and chasing girls.
Cut to my 30's and I've come back to it. Repainted the white that yellowed, but because of differing paint formulas etc etc, it has crazed. There are many parts not useable, but the masts and funnels are not affected.
