A lot of props you see in the movies were pieced together from kits. This is cheaper from making the props from scratch. I am often asked where someone can buy the parts used to make the origional movie props. Some are still available from the origional manufactors, but most have been disconrtinued. Don't give up hope, most of these disconrinued kits will appear on eBay from time to time. Even if they no longer exist, copies can still be found on eBay. But the greatest difficulty is winning these items because there are usually more bidders than items availiable. So what is tbe best way to win the parts needed to make props for the classic films that are so old that nowhere has any in quantity if at all? I use myibidder.com to snipe the pieces I need to finish my projects. It is all out there it just might take you a long time to find it, but when you do, the best way to win it is with myibidder.com. Even though it doesn't assure that you win the item, you can snipe the item at the end instead of bidding and having someone snipe it from you at the last minute. It is the thrill of the hunt that drives a lot of us, but it's a hassle to bid on them, and anguishing when someone snipes the item you need at the end for just a dollar more than your bid. Myibidder levels the playing field for you!
