Wink body parts required

Hello,
I don't know if it's the right place to ask, but it sounds a good idea to ask here. I need a pair of legs that could suit one (or 2) of those bodies.
I often need body parts for my restorations and each time, I spend loads of time to purchase postcards and photos in attic sales to fill my library.
It would be nice that people could share their assets eg. you need a leg, I can lend you an arm. Maybe a new forum?
I got old photos of the same kind and will be happy to suit somebody else's need....
Hope it doesn't sound too weird..
thank you,

Re: body parts required

thank you very much, but do you think I can freely use this parts (the 1st one will match exactly, I think) I do not want to offend someone else's rights.
Thank you anyway..

PS: Kidney anyone?

Re: body parts required

I use their original site @ "The Library Of Congress"
The Library of Congress >> Prints & Photographs Division >> Prints & Photographs Online Catalog.
and search for what I want IE,. 'girl sitting' or 'woman standing' OOPS! they have moved to here

I get clues on what to search for by reading the different descriptions on the titles of the pictures IE,. 'Facing left,' etc

generally speaking these photos are free to use, BUT, read the FAQs about copyrights on the site

Re: body parts required

you can also check the smithsonian, the national archives and free stock photo places like morguefile.com . just check their usage policies first.
