Les asks: I am currently building a 1:43 scale model kit of a Volkswagen series 2 microbus for a friend, for his birthday.
I need the large chrome VW badge for the front of the vehicle. After extensive searching I have come up empty.
Do you know where I can obtain one?
I'm assuming there isn't a badge in the kit and that there isn't another kit available you could pinch the badge from.
My suggestion would be to cut the badge from some stiff metal foil. I've some from the Bare Metal Foil Company bought at the model shop in Northampton (You can get it from Little Cars) which would work. Cutting the thing would be fiddly but as it's a circle with straight lines inside, not impossible.
