Does anyone know where I could get hold of a pair of classic chrome plated mirrors for 1/18 scale?

I'm desparately looking for the type fitted to British classic cars.

Kyosho used to fit a lovely pair round mirrors on the wings of their Austin Healey 3000. And Paragon fit rectangular styled ones on their Jaguar XJ6.

I'm trying to detail up a BoS Rover P5b Coupe. All I can find so far are 1/25 1/24 scale parts which are too small.

Thanks!

Japanese cars were still sold with 'wing mirrors' until the 1980's. If you trawl through e-bay you may be able to find trashed models with what you need at low prices.
Don't bother with bBurago though, many of their older cars were poor quality toys and didn't have mirrors to avoid being swallowed by kiddies.

Thanks very much. I've tried to find mirrors on their website but without success. How do you buy from them?
Look in the "pieces" category. You can click on the british flag to get english, or if you're using google chrome, just translate the page. You add the item to cart and then checkout.
