While I was starting my Lamborghini Aventador build I have either missed placed or someone else in my household has thrown away some of the parts to this build so i have broke down & ordered  another Aoshima Lamborghini Aventador for just the few parts that are missing. i did not want to spend the money on this but really had no choice to replace the needed parts that have disappeared and I did not want to finish this build without the kit being assembled the correct way. I guess its another lesson learned in the life of a Model Car builder. On the bright side I will have some cool extra goodies to put in the parts box.

You could of contacted Aoshima and had the parts replaced, you still would of had to pay for it, but it would of been cheaper then a whole kit

Hey, Metalmad.  You know, of course, that the "missing" parts will show up just as soon as the new kit arrives, right?

I've had to do it a couple times for actual missing parts from the sealed kit. The first time they wanted to charge me shipping. I asked them why I should pay $15 shipping for a couple of parts that were missing from a sealed kit and they waived the charge and just sent the parts, and they were here within a week.

I had to pay for a replacement body and shipping, it was still cheaper then buying the whole kit, not buy much :lol:
