This is a silly question, as you are obviously missing them, but could you post a picture of them (or someone who has them) and I'll have a look through my spares to see if I have any.

Hi Craig,

I make resin copies of both these wings in my spare time. The quality is not as good as BTS, as my moulds and casts are all hand prepared and poured, but are still quite good copies of the originals, (although being resin, they are not as strong.

If you can't get them anywhere else and/or they are too expensive, I only charge between $2 and $3 (AUS) each, depending on whether you want them cast in plain white, or tinted. The advantage of tinted resin is that the colour goes right through, but I can't guarantee a perfect match, and you can't paint over them once tinted (the pigment seems to react with paint, no matter what you do to set or seal them).

However, your biggest expense will be postage, which is getting quite exy these days, about $15 to UK if I remember correctly. But I do tyres and lots of other parts as well for this vintage of cars, so if you can order enough parts, it generally becomes worthwhile.

Feel free to pm me for more info if you want.

I agree with John (Stoner) Plasticard is the way to go and if you feel the wing needs strengthening some .5mm Piano wire Araldited to the underside works a treat.

Hi,

Alfetta, I'm probably being a bit thick here but do you mean glue the wire to the underside of the wing or round the legs on the inside of the car body?

Put simply, wherever it needs strengthening. However in most cases I will Araldite it to the trailing edge of the uprights and from the middle of the legs across the under side of the wing.

Hi Craigus22,

I'm curious about how you get from plasticard and a 3d modelling package to a wing. What type of machine is your friend using?
