I've looked around and have not found any, do they exist?

Hi Tracy.

That's something I've been looking for, too. I'm afraid there aren't.

My "Plan B" will be to buy some generic tow cables (Karaya makes different sizes, for example) and to add the ends from the kit cables, or to find some similar looking cable ends from an other country and to modify them.

Cheers,
Peter

I have a few sets from Clipper Models.
They have multi piece ends made from white metal.

I meant to buy more but I can not find them anymore.

... are those the ones also included in the Fine Molds Ha-Go kit?

Cheers,

Edit: OK, I think I misunderstood you. You mean, just the ends are white metal? Would be great if somebody would find them somewhere. Or, if they are OOP, if they would be produced again.

I think I found those cables on the Clipper models website:

http://www.clippermodels.com/

Select the second text containing "1/35" at the left, it should be item # 814.

It does not appear to be out of production.

Could anybody who writes Japanese (one of our Japanese friends here?) ask them where those cables can be found?

Cheers,
Peter

I think my Fine Molds kits had a cast metal cable.
The Clipper has a copper cable with a multi piece white metal cable ends.
I also bought the jacks and antennas as well, the cables where the best though.

I am wishing I had bought more.

So no one knows how to get in touch with them? I'm not looking forward to fixing (my mistake) on the kit cables

cheers, Tracy

Yes, I know how to get in contact with them - go to their website I mentionned in my post before and push the "contact" button.

But I don't write japanese.

Who can do it?

Cheers,
Peter

Does anyone ask the importer or exporter who deal other products of Clipper models like HLJ or RainbowTen?

My friend has requested a importer to deal a product that he made master from English resin manufacture. And the importer accepted small-sized lot import.

I might be able to help you, but I'm lukewarm to ask them about products that I do not order in the first step. Maybe looks so passive I am.

Regards.
