    I just noticed it has been a couple of weeks since I have notified Revell of my warped body and have yet to get a replacement after submitting a request on their website. 
    Has anyone asked for and received a replacement? If so, how long did it take you get one?
    I wonder if they have found a bunch of bad bodies and are delayed in sending out replacements?
    I will give them another week or so before I ask again.

    I believe Gregg had an article in MCM a couple of issues back on modifying the Meng into a single cab for an ambulance project. Pretty detailed photos and IIRC it came out nice.
    Would love to see a modern wrecker body for 1 ton trucks, even better if it were a whole new kit!

    I picked one up today, after the 40% off coupon I was out the door for about $19. I agree that this is a lot, but it is a nice kit.

    Sorry to hear that Rich, definitely out of character for them but can only make the assumption that their going out of business sale has affected the QC process. Hopefully they will make good on it.

    All the speculation over hot warehouse versus being pulled too quickly from the mold is a moot point as we have not been tasked with solving the problem for Revell, just to notify them!
    I'm not a plastics engineer, nor did I stay in a Holiday Inn express last night, but I am intelligent enough to know that Revell will figure out what happened and try to make sure it doesn't happen again. Someone will undoubtedly total up the cost of this problem and if it was an outside molding company, they will most likely pay.
    Hopefully my replacement body is on it's way.

    After reading your latest update Harry I have even more sympathy for you. Bad enough to hear that the first treatment was painful, but the ensuing attempt to alleviate the pain caused by it sounds horrible.
    I remain hopeful that somehow as a country we can fix the many wrongs that have occurred to the healthcare system over the last 6 years so that simple things like getting pain killers for a person truly in need doesn't take so long.
     
    Continued prayers Harry.

    Never trust a skinny chef - Not sure who first said it, but it makes me chuckle.
     
    As far as learning from mistakes, my personal experience is that I learn from my own as well as others. My mistakes seem to resonate with me more as I own them, others, not so much.

    Yes, a day for reflection and prayers it never happens again.
