Hi all, not been on here for ages, but I might need some help. You remember I built my 'Mr Revell' and posted pics' on here way back.
Anyway, I had a second unbuilt kit still in the box, and when I saw Dennis a while ago I gave him the unbuilt model. I spoke to him again on his return from his trip to Florida a week ago where he's been put in some hall of mirrors or something, probably something not very important I'm sure, but most likely to do with drag racing as he's not much good at anything else.
Well, he says that I conned him as there are parts missing from the kit, mainly all the rubber bits...tyres etc. and that if I didn't sort it out , he and the rest of the old Priddle team are coming round to burn my house down.
Can anyone help? I would really appreciate it as he's a nasty sod when upset... :D
Living in fear...Jeff' the Paint.

Hi Jeff,

I have got some spare rear tyres, not sure on the fronts will have to dig deep in the spares box to see if they are still intact. I doubt i will have a blower belt but i do have some ribbed belt that i use for blower belts if thats any good to you

Thanks Gareth, for your very kind offer. Luckily I have found all the rubber parts required to go with the kit. What is still needed is the rear slot mags.
Thanks again mate. I'm sure something will turn up from some ones spares box!
Best regards, Jeff'

Gareth, thank god for guys like you. I think I've posted photos' of my 'Mr Revell' in this thread (page ten) so you should be able to see the wheel type.
Thanks again for looking.
