Hi everyone, I need a favour if possible.

I am working on the ladders up to the poop deck and about to install the stanchions that came with issue 82 & 83. There were 5 in each issue. Since there are only 4 used on each ladder, I presume there was 1 spare in each packet.

So, having prepared the way ready to start, I find that my pack 83 is missing the 5 needed. I have looked in the other packs either side of it but I can’t see them. If they did actually come with a different issue, does anyone know which one it was?

If not, I could try customer services to order a new issue but there doesn't seem to be many available at the moment so I thought I would first check if a couple of people here still had these 2 spare and would be willing to pop them in the post for me. This assumes of course, that they are not used later in the model which doesn’t appear to be the case.

Many, many thanks in advance.

Hi John, BigGrin

Have looked through the few spares I`ve got for the Victory, but nothing doing.

If CS can`t help or it will take a while for new deliveries to arrive, there is another option.

Measure one of the stanchions you have and follow the link below:

They may have something to fit or be very close, they have pages to choose from that came up with my basic search.

Well, it looks like no one has any spares of these so I bit the bullet and ordered a new issue of 82 or 83. They said it was in stock and should be with me in 2 weeks.

Would it be possible for an admim to confirm if these are in stock please? TBH I don't trust CS to tell the truth at the moment and I have yet to receive an acknowledgement for the payment.

Many thanks to Derek also for checking spares and providing the link.

I have plenty of work to do on the bow now, so there is no rush to complete the ladders. I wanted to use the original parts provided it possible but have save the link as a back-up just in case.

Hi John,

I have some leftover spare parts including brass ones.
Do you mind post a photo what you're after and I can check if I have it.
Happy building!

Many thanks Laszio, these are the babies I'm referring to.

I believe there were 2 packs sent (Issues 82 & 83) one for each ladder up to the poop deck. There were five in each pack I believe, but only 4 were needed so I am 3 short.

So you might have 2 left over.

You are right, I am. Amazing.

Address in PM. Many thanks indeed. You are a life saver.

I believe I had quality issues with one of the parts and I requested a replacement issue from CS.
I have 2-3 double issues/parts because of this.
Happy building!
