    i thought that it might be helpful if i started a thread for people to post their wants/needs regarding odd parts needed for them to complete a project or what they have spare that might help others

    I'd be keen on the Frog Beau parts Bob, for our upcoming unofficial Beaufighter GB... drop you a PM shortly.

    (Btw, there's a thread titled 'I'll trade U 4 that' which pretty much covers this sort of thing - you'll find people's lists of wants/ swaps there)

    I like your idea woljags, a thread for kits to swap and one for parts. My basement floor is colored Sprue Gray and several models are on standby because of my clumsiness.

    Sprue gray, now that is a pretty silly thing to do.

    I have often thought my bench, and chair should be suspended over a funnel! Yes??

    Does anyone have a spare 1/48 N1K2-J ShidenKai '03' red fuselage roundel decal - or two other numbers I could use instead? I'm afraid one of my numbers tore at the edge when I was setting it down, to a point where it's not really retrievable.

    Does anyone have two SUU-11A/A MINI-GUN PODs in 1/72 scale for a Lockheed OP-2E Neptune build that they are willing to part with?

    Also a couple of 1/72 scale M-60 Machine guns?

    Thanks, Jim

    No worries mate!

    If anyone has a spare 1:72 A6M2 Zero cowl going, let me know! (pref. new-tool Hasegawa if poss)
    Can trade a new-tool Hasegawa A6M3 or Academy A6M5 cowl for it (or trade new-tool Hasegawa A6M3 Hamp wings and cowl for similar A6M2 components).

    Likewise, if anyone has a 1:72 Tamiya Mosquito FB.VI or XIII nose to trade for similar B.IV components (incl. resin detail set), let me know.

    Cheers! Evan

    Started building this for an April Fools post on the ARC site, No.(insert squadron number here) squadron(Zebra Squadron ZB*A) squadron hack, SAAF. My daughter fell in love with it and is waiting impatiently for me to finish it but I broke the one piece canopy trying to force it to fit.(Can't believe people are trying to sell this, Nichimo 1/48 on Ebay for 19-31$). Anyone know if the Vac-forms from Squadron or any other maker will fit this or perhaps have the canopy in the spares box?
