    Does anyone know if this decision is just by the US De Agostini Admin? Or will it be a worldwide rollout?
    When us UK builders complained about an inaccurate TP1 panel, De Agostini re designed it... and supplied the new one to the French and Japan rollouts, but told the UK they would not be replacing ours!
    I'm hoping that because these Greeblies are additional items and not replacement parts, maybe they'll supply them worldwide.
    I can hope!..

    Hey dtssyst, where did all the info and images of the missing parts go? That is good reference and should be kept on the thread.

    UPDATE: Nevermind...just seen the above post...LOL

    I'd still like accurate castings, just gives it a better look and authenticity.

    I just got a couple of bits in and they just look better than deagostini parts.

    Hi dssyst,
    just had a second Agano kit delivered and this one has the parts needed, sprue W part 30. It would appear there are two Agano kits out there.
    so as to clarify for everyone's benefit the kit needed has the item number 31314**2200.The kit to avoid has the item number 77058**500.Hope this is helpful.
    Just had a quick look and correct me if you think ive made an error but the agano part you mention seems to be on the 1/700 taiho kit also, looks like they have identical sprue w.

    The taiho has that star shaped piece that goes ontop of the flak38 trailer piece forward of the top turret. Kill 2 birds maybe?

    I do not think there has been any confirmation on what parts will be released...all we know so far is that there will not be parts from the KGV (King George V) kit...

    I'm just wondering if the parts I bought on shapeways are from the King George V kit.

    Sonic Sun and I are emailing each other.

    If all goes as planned...
    Not confirmed but we are trying very hard to have the following to be true.


    Set of 20 resin cast parts
    $25.00 free USA shipping

    Shipping over seas is still an unknown amount. We need to find out the total weight of all parts, type of package to ship parts in, best (cheapest) way to ship overseas.

    Again, we are really getting ahead of ourselves.
    We understand everyone is excited.
    Please be patient. We haven't even tried to cast the parts yet because we still await one more kit.
    We've been waiting for two years for the kit parts, I think we can all wait till you're ready for the finishing touches!

    Cheers

    Only a tip: the B-29 Kit has two of the No. 113 parts.
    If you two Guys have two kits you can sell on kit again...

    Good news Guys! Looks like Deag is coming through for us.

    Dear members of this forum,

    After receiving feedback from the manufacturer and experts, we have come to the conclusion that most (not all) of the parts highlighted as missing, are indeed omissions from the original prop. As such, we will be replacing them in due course, although as they will need to be designed and manufactured, the specifics of how they will be dispatched have yet to be clarified. In the coming weeks we hope to have a bit more clarity.
    Of the parts highlighted in the original post relating to this topic, we will be providing all parts with the exception of the ‘KGV’ ones highlighted in the final image, which have been deemed by the consultant to be inconclusive as to whether they were part of the original prop. It seems there may have been pieces there but they were never included on the Master Replicas version and as such, there is no accurate reference to model the parts on. Further information on when the parts will be ready will be forthcoming in the near future.
    We hope that the replacements of these parts will be welcome news to all subscribers, and we appreciate your patience in having waited for a response.
    Regards,
    DeAgostini Admin
    Based on the continual failure to Deagostini to even maintain proper and timely stock in the shipping dept., they bill like an insurance company and then ship when it is convenient or when they finally get around to confirming production quantities. The number of subscriptions grow each month and they wait to the very last minute to confirm production quantities, thus delaying shipping.

    I hope you guys find it in your hearts to continue with the casting project on the missing parts, most of us don't want to wait six months for Deagostini to follow through with their "agreement" to produce the missing parts in a supplemental issue.

    Put me on the list to purchase if you decide to make castings available, if anything price them so you can recover your "investment" in all the donor kits.

    Thanks for all your dedicated efforts.

    BREAKING NEWS !!!

    This is very important to all following.

    If we cast anything...
    Any and all cast parts will only be for myself and dlbsyst.

    We will provide the previously released photos and kit id's for all very soon. This is so all can obtain the kits that they want for the 'missing parts'.
    OR
    Shapeways or elsewhere as example.

    No further information will be provided.

    We now continue with the regular scheduled broadcast.
