    For helmsman's wheels and cable reels see laser-cut parts - Catalog Page 50
    at Paper Models International

    Similar photoetched parts by HMV are available from Moduni
    Standardätzsatz Kleinteile 1:250 - HMV Hamburger Modellbaubogen
    Beware S&H is very expensive, delivery is slow, and this particular sheet seems to be out of stock right now.

    If you know someone in Germany (or other parts of Euroland) who loves or owes you, there is a third and better option. Let this someone buy photoetch parts for you from Saemann
    In contrast to the HMV sheet from Moduni which comes with a lot of crap you don't want, here you just order what you need: e.g. just handwheels (Handräder), just cable reels (Schlauchtrommel), ... You can pick between 1:250 and 1:200 scale, chose different numbers of spokes, or go by diameter in millimeter.
    Unfortunately, Saemann does not accept credit card payment, only bank to bank transfer, which is the traditional business practice and cheap within Germany but makes it ridiculously expensive for customers from the U.S.

    Hope this helped
