Well, Italeri said no on one style. Crickets chirping on the last request.

Thank you. I looked for replacements, guess I did not look in the right hole.

Ordered from Rare Plane Detectives...with shipping, as much as a new kit...but I don’t want a new kit. Oh well.

This arrived a couple of days ago. Reminded me why I don't like to mess with vac formed parts. I am terrible at cutting them out. Anyone need any of the extras? Cheap.

OH, finally heard from Italeri. I can get the clear parts for a different kit# (103) for 10 euros. May order them for back up.

Too bad that I don’t build 1/72, or I’d take you up on that offer about the rest of those... :hmm:

I guess you’ll have to buy all those other kits listed to make your investment worthwhile... :whistle:
