1:32 Lightbar Help Needed

Postby AnthonyV on Wed Feb 18, 2015 11:24 am

Hey guys,

Just bought a 1:32 scale Platform fixer-upper and it's missing a lightbar where the first arrow is pointing. I'm looking for a lightbar that matches the one in the photo below to replace the missing one. The numbers in the photo may not be clear, but it's:

3/16 High x 11/16 Long

If you know of one, but it doesn't match the one in the photo, I can always remove the three remaining ones I have there and replace them with four new ones for uniformity's sake. Anyone? Thanks a million in advance.

Anthony

You have 3 possibilities.
Somebody here has one of those Franklin Mint Towers and has changed the
Mini-Aeros, or their's is missing one or more too and they decided to change them.

Find one of 4-5 MPC 1/32 kits that had the "Aerodynic" type lightbar
ie Trans Am Pursuit, Trail Patrol Chevy Stepside pickup, ??Dodge & Futuristic Vans

Third is Sculpt one yourself out of solid Plastic rod, and paint to your liking not just
to duplicate the ones you still have

The only other "Lightbar" I know of it 1/32 is the "Mars"/Twinsonic type in the Monogram
Malibu Police car. Making a Minibar out of one of those won't be easy!!

I am not sure what lightbars Code3 Diamond-Plate 1/32 pieces came with,
I have never seen one personally let alone own one, and I don't have any
of the MINT pieces either!!

Go with something that looks like LED mini bars for replacements.
Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue
