I'm in the process of finishing the Revell 1:32 Heinkel 111 and have broken two parts!! contacted Revell and placed an order, weeks have passed and now when I check their website it states that their parts replacement is suspended! anyone know where I can get the parts I need to finish my kit?

Did you order from Revell Germany, or Revell US? Since the parent company of Revell went bust, all the assets ( & moulds ) now belong to a new German company - which trades as Revell.de. Revell US no longer exists !

This page on the Revell site says they still send spare parts. Some years ago I had a missing gun mantlet in their 1/72 scale Tiger tank kit, and got sent one sometime after I e-mailed Revell about it. As I recall, it took a couple of weeks or more, though, before they put it into the mail.

Many thanks for the replies, I'll give them another try. I've broken a part of the glazing and a rather delicate gun mantlet, other than that model is ready for final painting. One other question, I've got loads of Tamiya Model magazines that are fairly mint, would anyone be interested? some of them go back to 1993
