Kind of an odd scale these days, but try Shapeways.com

This is an old Dumas PT 109 and 1/32 scale seems to fit

Most of what I have seen shown the Dumas kit at 1/30 scale. Luis has a lot of 3d printed parts for this scale kit on his Shapeways site:

Luis is great to work with. I have used several of his smaller scale items (1/144 and 1/125) .

Sasa also makes quite a few PT parts. Look here:

If you see an item on Shapeways that is not the scale you want (here 1/32 scale) you can often work with the seller/designer to resize parts. They can usually do that, upload the part(s) to Shapeways, and post them for sale.

You need to understand that trying to make an item in a large scale into a much smaller scale is more often impossible. If the part offered is in a smaller scale (say 1/35 or 1/40) it probably can be done. If the part is in a larger scale (like 1/20 or 1/25) probably not.

For example, if the real item is 1/2" inch thick that means it would be 1/32 inch (.031) thick in 1/16 scale. In 1/87 scale it would be .006 inches thick. This can not be printed on Shapeways' printers. Basic rule of thumb, take the real thickness of a feature on the real item and multiply it by your scale. If it is less than .026 inch (which is the limit on most of Shapeways' machines) it most likely will not print.
