'58 Corvette R.H. spindle
Posted by Roger on Sunday, August 05, 2018 5:03 PM

Would anyone happen to have a r.h.spindle (part 62) for the Revell '58 Corvette roadster?   My 1st kit in about 55 years was missing just that part. Then I found that Revell no longer has a customer service department.

I would appreciate any help or advice.

Hi Roger. Is it possible to post a photo of the other spindle? It might be something that can be fashioned from sprue. Being a first build in a long time, I appreciate you won't have the parts boxes that many of us would resort to.

Unfortunately you are a victim of Revell's business troubles. They had one of the best parts replacement programs in the business, but a few months ago their corporate mothership went bankrupt.

Thanks for the offer Bainford.  If you don't mind I'll put that offer in the bank right now.  I recieved an e-mail from Revell Germany stating that they would handle my issue !!  Just thought I had nothing to lose by sending them a request and WOW, replied in less than a day. Wink

Revell Germany could quickly become my favorite supplier.

Thanks again but, I will take you up on the offer if this doesn't work out.
