Why doesn't anyone make a resin engine detail kit?

For a long time I thought it would be clever for some aftermarket to make a set of underhood decals, like kind of generic emissions and fuse labels and labels and whatever you might find under the hood.

Well now, after consistently deficient kit offerings, it occurs to me that no one makes engine accessory kits. Why aren't there resin sets including an alternator, A/C compressor, even power steering pumps? With the exceptional resin transkits happening, these would be a esdy little side project for the likes of Hobby Design or 81. I know there is variation between manufacturers but Japanese stuff, for example, is all close enough for such a thing to make sense.

Just a thought.

There used to be some out there, I seem to recall seeing them on scaledreams.com when they were still around. I think modelcargarage, R&M and some others did the small metal and resin parts.

Slixx had a decal sheet with engine decals on it, mainly things like alternator labels and such but still better than completely blank space.

Got some good pics of these items in 1/1?

I'm not trying to 'advertise' but I've been making under-hood/bonnet engine decals for American and British cars for the past few years - any scale you like......
