Looking for Monogram kits

I'm looking for a couple of kits to complete my collection - a
Monogram Dornier 335 and an Eidaigrip McLaren M23 in 1/8. I've done a
search on eBay, but there's no sign. Anyone any idea where I can find
them, or what I can expect to pay? Sometimes you've just got to wait
till the right thing pops up on an auction site.

I think the Promodeler Do 335 is the same as the Monogram, but I guess that won't do you any good if you want it in a Monogram box for collection purposes.

I think the M23 was also boxed as an Entex. It was a $400 kit before ebay came along. Haven't seen on for sale in years. Not surprised they aren't poping up. Its a pretty rare kit.The decals will need a coat of preservative before you soak them, if they are usuable at all. Luckily the thing is so big a sign shop can cut the Marlboros from vinyl if needed. The plastic was so brittle on mine I eventually gave up trying to finish it.
The DO 335 shouldn't be that hard. I see them occasionally. I think Great Hobby Adventures in Des Moines has one.

yes it was, and the last couple I saw go on E-bay brought in the neighborhood of 1000 bucks. Maybe I should plan to retire on the one in my basement?

I believe the Promodeler version is actually the Dragon version with styrene parts to replace the PE supplied in the Dragon kit.

Just to clarify, that's the 1/72 kit I'm talking about.

Can't say I've ever seen a 1/72 Mono/Dragon 335... 1/48, yes (Monogram only) but not 1/72

The Promodeler kit was in 1/48 scale and was a rehash of the old Monogram kit with a couple of PE parts. The Dragon kit was in 1/72 and never reboxed by Monogram (either under the Monogram or Promodeler label) that I know of. Revell could have reboxed the Dragon kit, but the only 1/72 Revell Do335s I've seen are the old Revell twin seater kit.

You're right, the Dragon kit was reboxed by Revell and not Monogram.
