While it's fresh on your mind, does this part look familiar to you? 



I think it dropped out of the Rotodyne kit I just purchased. The plastic matches but I didn't see this little part in the parts diagram. (not that it's not there, I could have missed it.... )

Doesn't ring 'dyne bells with me at all. Perhaps it fell out of the FROG Lancaster instead?

Different colors! That FROG kit is a strange sort of dark blue-green plastic. It's actually quite lovely.  ;D

Yes, the late FROG kits were all that colour, and quite hard plastic too.

Oh!! Like.... the type when you cut a piece with some nips and almost lose an eye!  ;D


IKEA parts, Scoot... you know, that could very well be the case. I'm with Kit, other than the color matching the piece doesn't look like anything that goes with the kit. SO... here's a theory.......   the former owner, having found a spare piece that was the same color, threw it in the kit and then through sheer dumb luck it happened to be the very part that fell out once I rec'd it. One hell of a stretch but could explain things and that little part could very well not belong to ANYTHING I have.

Thanks for all the nice words folks.

Kit - no back story adjustment took place, I always intended her to have her bum in the air... ;)  Honest...

Brad C - It's not one of the parts I used and it's not one of the parts I just sorted into the parts boxes.  You could well be right about it being the result of a quick tidy up.

Front isn't the problem as it's stock Airfix.  It's the back legs that I should really have cut down.  As it was I used smaller (Harrier) wheels.  If i'd had used the original Matchbox Warthog wheels then it would be even more tail high.
