Missing headlight
Posted by Mopman on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 4:45 PM

Hello. I am a new member to the Forum and hoping someone can help with a missing part.

I am from Wanganui, New Zealand on the West Coast of the North Island.

I have been working on the Revell Chevy SSR (Kit no 4052) and was half way through attaching the left side Headlight Cover (part no 73) to the Headlight Bucket (part no 75) when I got called away for a short time by my wife.  When I got back to my modelling area my cat was up on the table being nosy as only cats can. It took off as I can back in and unfortunately it had the above parts in its mouth as it ran.  I have been unable to find them where ever it dropped them.  As it is a very long process to try and get replacement parts via our local importer, I am putting out a cry for help on the forum to see if anyone can help with either replacement parts as above and advice on where I can quickly track down another source for there items. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi Ian, and welcome to the forum. Try asking your question in the 'Where Can I Get' part of the forum, near the bottom of the main forum page. You may have better luck there. Good luck.

I had this happen once too! Fortunately the cat brought all missing parts back to where she had taken them from. Go figure?!?

Buy another model of this kit. That would be the easiest way to get the part you need. Then make a beat up hot rod out of the one missing a headlight.
