G'day all
I've run into an issue with my Takom Chieftain Mk10 - my dog decided the drive sprockets & barrel MRS would be better off sitting in his belly, than sitting on my model. I have been in touch with Takom & they FINALLY got back to me & advised they can help me with the entire A sprue (drive sprockets) but the D sprue (barrel MRS) is now OOS.
Have had a look on eBay for a metal barrel, w/out luck - seems nobody makes a replacement L11A5. Any clues where I can track one down, or at the very least where I might find this Takom D sprue?

TIA
Shaun

Accurate Armour does indeed make a very nice resin barrel.

Somebody on Ebay sells sprues / trees from kits. (saved my ass with a 1/35 UH60 with a busted fuselage.) Might get lucky.
