scale model t with railings and stanchions? (small caps) on top of vertical posts in 1/25 scale. I was wondering if the terminology is correct and where to buy or make these type of parts? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I'm not sure exactly what you are asking for, but here are two sites that have been helpful to me over the years in my model building projects. Hope they can help you find what you need. Jim Patrick

It looks like you have done a super job already. Can we see a picture of the front?

Michael,

Try your local hobby shop that handles model boats and ships. They have quite a variety of stanchions available. also, online at (among others):

Bluejacket Ship Crafters

Billing Boats

This link has links to many more web sites: Historic Ships

thanks, I found some at the model dockyard, you guys have all been great, I will try to put up some pictures of builds, etc, right now working on the johan 34 mercedes, I've opened the hood and am currently adding an mcg piano hinge (tedious but cool), these mercedes kits are not typical Johan with bad chassis, this has a full chassis and is a beautiful and well designed kit, some have amazing engraving on the body especially, newer ones are not nearly as good, thinner plasti, etc.
