Long shot -- Winnie Mae

I have the AMT kit and it looks sort of OK, but the decals are completely
worthless. Not even good enough to scan and clean up. Did anyone ever
release after market decals for this kit?

Depends, do you want to build the Winnie Mae, or just a Lockheed Vega. The Vega was used by a number of companies (Texaco is one that comes to mind) and you might be able to put a striking aircraft out of it.
One question, the biggest fuselage difference between the AMT and the old Lindberg was that the AMT had more windows. Which version is correct for the Winnie Mae?

Didn't MPM release this subject in 1/72nd scale?  If so, how is this decal sheet, and might you scan it in, and re-scale it?

( Does this look correct? )
And perhaps the Williams Bros. kit may serve the same purpose. Is this one back in "availability"?

I am under the impression that the AMT kit has the correct # of windows.
However, according to SWMBO I have been wrong many times before!!

Yep, that looks like 'er
I did not know that WB did a Vega in 1/48th.

If you'd like them, I have a semi-complete sheet of 1:48 Lindberg decals. The only parts missing are the two "Lockheed" tail logos (I converted a Vega to an Air Express and that was the only decal that I could use). The decal's varnish is somewhat yellowed, but could be renewed and there are no cracks or breaks. Send me your address via e-mail that I'll mail it to you. At the very least, you could use the sheet to make a new set.
