If they need to be round, use floral wire cut to length. Drill small holes right through the hull and use super glue to keep them in. If they need to be flat, use the leftover photo-etch sprues, and cut them to length and use super glue to keep them in place.

Im certain someone with more experience than me would know, but I've never seen "stand alone" engine deck handles.

Probably part of PE kit for an M60. Did you hit the sites for all the PE houses like Aber, Eduard, Voyager, etc...?

Sorry I'm no help.

Look here for the T30/34

Ivan, thanks for getting back to me. Yes I have looked into all the vendors and P/E makers sites. I know that Voyager makes sets for both the T29 and the T30. I had also been trying without sucess to purchase, until a few minutes ago when I stumbled across a site called SOGA. Man what a site and ,YES, by god they show having both of Voyagers sets. Also I can see that the T30 set, which I looked at closer, DOES have the handles! Now, if I can get it ordered, their site won't let me, at this time use their Paypal, and get it in my hands and match it to the M60 as well, then I will order the same kit again for the handles.

Yeah, most Voyager PE sets I've purchased from ebay. All from overseas. Voyager lists M&Models as their dealer in North America, but I did not see the T30 set there.

I just got a reply from M&M today that they have added that set to their order due towards the end of March. So it will depend on who I hear from first. I will go with a "for sure" over a probably WILL be with the next order.
