Revell 1/44 Shuttle Launch Tower (104911), seems the kits were sent out missing a sprue. I've just been sent the parts from Hannants for the kit I purchased from them. If you have bought the kit, you should chase up the parts from the retailer if you haven't already been contacted :wink: .

Rich ,
Can you tell us what sprue and if possible a photo.
Im due to do the review build over on RA and even though ive checked the contents against the sprue diagrams ive been told that the missing sprue is not on the diagram.

Cheers
Andy

Unfortunately I don't have physical access to the kit as I had it sent to my parents in the UK rather than pay a small countries budget deficit to get it sent overseas. I think the sprue was missed all through the production process which is why it may not appear in the instructions :shrug: .

Hello Andy as I mentioned in your WiP thread you should have been contacted by who ever you bought the kit off of. Revell are supplying the sprue to sellers to forward on rather then handling distribution themselves.

The missing sprue is a copy of sprue 12 from the instruction booklet.

Man! When did this get released? I'm having a hard time finding stock in any online shops.

Last month I think, maybe they've withdrawn stock to put the missing parts in :shrug: .
