Missing part Arkmodels VIIC U-Boat
« on: March 26, 2023, 07:42:55 pm »

Ok it wasn't missing until one of the surface modellers' boats didn't know U267 was there  <:(  but the part B4 that sits atop the 8.8cm deck gun was severed from the main body of the cannon today, by a Hinksey 400'd prop! >>:-(


So anyone know how to get a replacement - I've asked Arkmodel but not optimistic  :o  [size=78%]! If someone could send dimensioned pics that's be great, otherwise I'll improvise! [/size]

If you cannot get a replacement part, then either scratchbuild from styrene sheet or you could go for a completely new item. https://www.shapeways.com/product/7G76CCJU8/1-48-uboot-10-5cm-45-deck-gun

Arkmodels offered to digitally print me one for a couple of dollars. They did offer me the complete sprue assembly for nearly $30 incl. postage but that's excessive.
