Contact mckinstrys directly, they might have something. Their facebook page is quite active.

I cant remember if that car appeared much in the McKinstry dvd but can have a look if you like. I have the doorplate here from the fisher car

Is this the monaghan poltry car?

I had plans to do that car but after sending a number of emails to mckinstry with no reply I gave up

So I wouldn't count on any help from Kenny

guys i hate to be bearer of bad news but sometimes rally drivers just are not into models,even if it is of there past/present cars.
i contacted j j flemin and paddy white and the reponse was neither wanted a model of there present cars!

Why buy a model when you have the real thing parked up in your garage? Laughing

I find it's usually the codrivers who are into collecting models.

I had plans to do the Monaghan poultry car but 2 reasons that have stopped it firstly Kenny didn't reply to any of my requests for photos and more so that its so quiet sales wise at moment
