      i hope someone here could help me out. am enjoying the build of the revell 1/72 twin otter. part # 32 (one half of the engine) fell to the carpet and was consumed by my neighbor's corgi (seriously). i was not pleased as now i can't finish the build. do any of you have that piece in your spares box? will cover any costs. thank you for any assistance. kind regards, carl

      I can't give you the parts of mine, I'm afraid, but the kit is readily available in Europe for prices as low as 10. It's a bummer to spend money on, but it might be an option to just buy a whole new kit. Or, if shipping costs are too high, I can buy a kit for you and cram the engine parts in a regular mail envelope which will be like 10 + 3 for uninsured shipping.

      Well, let's hope someone in the US has the part for you, but let me know if no one does, my offer stands.

      Since plastic is non-biodegradable, you could just follow the corgi around and when it does its business, VOILA !! ( unless of course, the corgi chewed before swallowing !! )
