Hi all,

I've just purchased a second hand Horizon Hobby Parkflyer Spitfire Mk.9 1100mm wingspan , it is the one coded JE-J. She is a bit battered and has a fair amount of hangar rash.

She is missing an aerial mast and undercarriage doors and the spinner looks a bit tatty. I am planning to give her a repair job and a makeover into RF-G BS556 of 303 Sqn so she will go with my 303 Sqn Dynam Hurricane.

However, after scouring the net it appears, unfortunately that there are no spare parts anywhere available for this model. So I was hoping that there would be some one out there who has some parts left over from a crashed 1100mm Mk. IX Spit who might be able to help. I am willing to pay the going rate and postage if there is anyone who has any of these parts and doesn't need them anymore.

Hoping in anticipation

Worst case surely you can make the aerial mast and U/C doors from thin plasticard and the spinner from a small block of blue foam? If you have the skills to repaint the markings then the replacement parts will be simple.

Probably cheaper than sourcing genuine parts too?
