      Hello,

      yesterday some accident happened in my modelling shop.
      After the final primer airbrushing session my A330-200 was parked near the toaster.
      Unfortunately my girl friend used the toaster yesterday evening and as a result the right wing tip was damaged beyond repair.
      Now I am looking for a spare wing incl. winglet or the outer part from the wing. Any chance somebody has a wing left in his spare box? Could be from an old already built model or whatever.

      Greetings from Germany

      ...and lots more...

      Lieber Daniel,
      that sounds like a serious incident, however, your Airbus will not be a write-off.

      I can certainly help out because I am using only Kurts A330/A340, so my stored Revell Airbusses can be used for spare.
      PM me and I will send you the new and unused parts necessary.

      Liebe Gre from Hamburg,

      Christian

      Hey Guys!

      Thank you very much for the multiple offers for help from several guys here in the airlinercafe.

      It is a pleasure to see there are so many good people in the world.

      I am sure my A330-200 will be fixed and I can continue to build it in Air Seychelles colours.

      Greetings Daniel

      Hi Daniel,

      Try boiling water and just dip the wing tip that's bent for a few seconds and take it out of water then reshape it with your hand. Once you fix it then you can putty, sand and prime it. This method also works best with resin parts as well.

      Good luck
      Ray
