      When it comes to airliners Extra Tech is about the only game in town... I get mine from Hannants.

      You can get 737 classic/NG and A320 family PE from DACO.

      Thanks guys, however I was looking for sort of a generic product not specific to any one aircraft type.

      I always wanted that too. Too bad nobody mass produces them. I made quite a few sets of my own, tweaking sizes and what-not as I went. Too much work for me to do anymore. Wish there was an easy way to get them mass produced.

      Would a word of encouragement tweak your thinking, Steve? Those are some fine looking parts! Put me down for the first 6 sets off your production line if you decide to get it going again.

      I will be adding photo etched antennas and pitot tubes in the A320 neo conversion set

      What I don't know yet is if I will include them in the same fret as the engine details or in a separated one for it to be available separated as well.

      I guess there are several options for antennas but besides the PE of the engines, I wanted to add some extra detail for the Zvezda kit. I wouldn't go that far as make the nose gear doors but I already thought about the idea of the static dischargers as the sharklets will be included in the conversion kit.

      Best wishes,
      Guillem

      Hi Steve,

      Get in touch with Bees Models. I can't be certain that they're still operating but it would be worth a try. Their website is www.beesmodels.co.uk. They predominantly do 1:200 kits but they did produce a very nice etch brass set of 1:144 scale generic antennae (photo below not mine)
