Help.....Help......Help.....

Hi guys...thought I should put this post in the Bikes Forum as my problem relates to a particular bike!

Last week I picked up Tamiya's Kawasaki KR500 GP Racer I think it is kit number 14028 from a Swap Meet in my local town, the guy selling it made me aware that the windscreen was missing from the kit. Now in the past I have had alot of success sourcing replacement parts from the National Distributors here in Australia. But this time round I have bombed out in sourcing this part apparently the Trader said to me that most Tamiya kits that are over 10 years old you have a hard time getting replacement parts for themBang Head.

So my question or cry for help is this.....Can anybody help me? If they now where I can get a replacement windscreen or I am willing to purchase another kit if anyone has one and is willing to part with it. I will purchase a whole new kit because I am think of doing to builds side by side one complete and another naked (minus fairings).

So if anybody can help or is willing to help it would be greatly appreciated.

Happy Buliding!!!

you could scratch build it fairly accurately using vacuum molding and a wood or putty sculpted dummy.

I have an extra windscreen from either a Tamiya Yamaha TZ250M or Suzuki RGV Gamma kit (I forget which one it's from) that you might be able to modify, let me dig it out and take a pic- my camera battery is dead at the moment, sorry.
