Have you tried them direct?  the chances are that you won't be able to get get replacement paperwork, no harm in asking though.

What car model is it for?

F**k you Photobucket.

I have been bidding on the 1954 Mercedes Gullwing, it looks great and it is selling at a great used price.  Anyone own this model? I know Minichamps is your best bet but 129is out of my budget.

Dare I say "ebay"?  (ok - I said it).  If you look in the diecast cars category in Franklin Mint sub-category, there are several folks selling the paperwork.

There are lots of people selling FM paperwork on ebay, it might be worth a look.
I have some extras, what are you looking for?

Rich, the FM Gullwing is a very old release. I had it years ago and it doesn't have a lot to offer.
I don't think I would pay more than $25 for it.
Also watch that the tires did not split along the seam. These were known for this.
