that kit seems to be still available from Revel Al, I don't know if spares are available. I have them in my email contacts so I have taken the liberty of asking them for you. When I hear back Ill let you know.

Al: I just noticed this thread. I think I may have a 66 kit in my stash. Are you still looking? If so I'll dig around and see if I can come up with it.

Thanks for the very kind offer John but I don't want you to spoil a kit. In the end I'll be able to get one from Revell if it doesn't turn up.

Al
I have heard back from Revel and they have requested the part/s from the USA ( their site says they only send out to USA and Canada but i believe they also service UK)

I have asked for the bonnet, and also both hinges and the lip in case you fixed these before losing the bonnet. ( parts 3, 4, 302 and 313). They have said it can take up to 12 weeks!!! but at least its better than a wasted kit.

Hey Gary, that's terrific mate. Many thanks for taking the trouble to do this for me. 

I don't remember attaching those parts to the bonnet but they won't hurt anyway.

The timescale doesn't worry me either, with around 250 kits in the stash, i'm not short!!! 

Cheers mate.
