Need info on 1:25 driver harness/hardware
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, April 19, 2005 9:10 PM
Any suggestions on 1:25 scale driver's harness kits? Who makes the best?
Who sells them? Any photos? I'm not really satisfied with what I've been using.

Ive got the Rep. and Min. of MD. Set and I think they are okay. Ive havent used them yet. detail master also make them but I persoanly dont like detal master's PE parts becuase they feel so flimsy. www.scaledreams.com has both of these companies products.

Thanks,Boss Hotrod,
I have used both and prefer the R&M. Just trying to find out if there is anything else available. I remember seeing a harness kit on ebay a while back but I don't recall who makes it. Any one know?

I saw two different products at a model show this last weekend. I'll post the pic later (I'm at the dreaded office right now)

I got the email BTD. Thank you. The Pro Tech harness looks pretty good but I could not find a dealer using Google. I saw papin67's Willys thread and looked for the Eduards's harnesses. I found a retailer in Jackson NJ. Just have to find the time to get over there.
Thanks again,
WF

That dealer has no email or website (kinda dumb) but you have the contact info. His fault!

Pro Tech has the same area code as I, so if you need me to take a minor excursion, let me know

Thanks again, BTD.

I am a HUGE fan of the Eduard PE Painted sets, I have been using their detail sets for armor modeling for years. My only beef with them is that the finish can be brittle and paint finish that they use to simulate the fabric isn't that realistic, but hey, it is better than a decal. If you are looking for just the harness and don't mind monkeying with folding complex photo-etch, Detail Master (Part of Modeltyme Designs) makes a lever type and a cam type racing harness frets that I think are pretty cool.
