I'm not sure where you're located at in the world, but I've usually been able to fill my needs for accessories at

I'll note now that I do not work for them (though I'm sure I'd like it much better than my current job!!), nor do I know if they have the product in question available. It's just been my experience that if it's available in North America, they'll have it. Be warned though, their search engine is a bit "clunky" though once you're used to it, it's quite functional.

Hope this helps!

I bought the wing fold set for the F6F-3/5 from Dangerboy Hobbies at my local hobby shop. Inside they had a web site cause I to want the wing fold for the Avenger.
Unfortunately their site is no longer avalible. So I'm guessing we are both SOL. I kinda thought that they went out of business awhile ago but I thought I'd give it a tryBig Smile [:D] Flaps up, Mike

O'yeah you may want to check at your local IPMS shows or the hobby shop. Best of hunting

  If you would listen to everybody about the inaccuracies, most of the kits on your shelf would not have been built Too Close For Guns, Switching To Finger

I do believe that Dangerboy is outta business. Not totally sure on that, though.

And Squadron is also the first place I look for modeling stuff as well, that is after my local shop and/or a show!

Dangerboy is no more. Heard that verlinden may be coming out with a wingfold set for the Avenger soon, though.
