What About Michael's??

I think they had the 77 Tow Truck snap kit.

I will try to watch there too.

 

Wish H-L had opened in my area back when they had the LA County Fire Department Wrecker.

I would have bought a few!

But, It Was Higher Priced than this is suppose to be too.

That did not help sales!!!!

Hello Everyone,

 

  This is my first posting, been checking out the site for awhile. Anyway, I picked up one of these wreckers and been wanting to do one since I first saw the kit in the early 2000's but couldn't afford it at the time.

 

   I was wondering if anyone would happen to have the Stepp's towing decals they didn't use for theirs? I would like to purchase them as I see this truck all the time on the road and would like to do it up in the same livery.

Your best bet is to contact Revell and tell them the situation. They should be able to send you the new parts

Thanks Casey I sent the request now to wait for a reply I guess. Do they send just that part? Or the whole tree?

It would just be the damaged part, perhaps the set of inner wheels (as when my Magnum kit was missing a headlight bezel, they sent both of them), but not the entire chrome runner.

I think it was about a week and a half, maybe two weeks.  At the time I was gone for work 5 days a week, so the amount of time it actually took is hard to calculate.  One day I was home and it was in the mailbox ^_^

 

Being a Revell AG kit you might be pushing the outside of that 3 weeks if they have to get the parts sent over from Germany.  Depends if they had any spares on hand in Illinois or not.

I believe the only time you will hear anything from Revell is an email stating your parts have been shipped, I think :huh:

it may take close to two months to get your part but be patient. i bought the pete 353"western life" kit from my lhs and it was missing

the entire clear parts tree, i put in a request at revell and it took almost two months to get it and i never recieved any emails regarding

my request. kudos to revell for fulfilling my request even tho it took awhile.
