Hello, when my 1/72 Airfix B17G was almost ready for painting stage, I ruined her left wing with a very aggressive paint remover that melted the surface details.
I do need the two halves that composed the wing.
How I can do ?
How is the exact procedure to contact Arfix to receive the parts ?
Are them cheap or it is better to buy a new kit ?

TIA Ciao

Which can be found at:


Select "spares enquiry" and write what happened, chances are you get the parts completely free of charge, or you may have to pay postage.

I have nothing but good experiences with them, they even replaced parts, and sent new decals for an old original MiG-15 I received as a gift, for free.

They are also quick, I received a confirmation the same day (it was a working day) and a shipping note the next day.
