Is it just me, or does it annoy other builders that AMT doesn't put side mirrors in their kits? Is there an aftermarket solution for this?

Well, not all AMT kit's are without mirrors, but when they are, it bothers me to.

I have seen a few after market mirrors, most for modern vehicles.
I think this is the only classic, after market, mirror I have seen. Not that useable.

I must be lucky to be picking up kits that don't have mirrors. You're right, it's not that useable.
