Finding Old kit decals?

Hi All,
I've been googling around to no avail, so I thought I'd post a quick
note here to see if there is any answer out there.
I built a Scale Model (Iowa) kit of an old Hubley model some years
back and now my boys are getting old enough to try a metal model.
Metal models seem to be hard to come by now days but ebay seems to have some
available and I was able to buy some other 'Scale Model' Hubley kits.
But Scale Model either ran out or never had the decal set for the
1928 Deusenberg model (possibly other kits too-- I've only assembled the 2).
All I'd really like is an image of the original decal sheet that I could
use with something like the Testors custom decal kit. Is there any kind of
repository of old kit decals? I that all copyrighted stuff and thus
impossible to find?
You can still buy the original kits unassembled, but they tend to be more
expensive (~4x more). I figure those kits are meant to be more for
collecting than assembling, and don't really want to buy one just to be
able to scan the decal sheet, although with 3 sons, I think the extra model
would likely get built at some point, so that's a remote option.
Are there other forums like this more appropriate for the question?

The chances of finding someone there with one of these kits is higher than here. We're a mixed group and the percentage of car-only builders is low.

Heh-- Thanks for the replies. I really never built that many model kits even as a kid. I was into building estes rockets moreso.
My in-laws gave me one of these metal car kits a few years back and I rather enjoyed assembling it. My boys are now having fun building plastic models so I'm revisiting the metal models.
Thanks again for the pointers. I'll drive off for now and duck the 'real' scale models (flying variety I guess).
