I've messaged Kyosho through their online messaging system indicating I was interested in ordering that part - I wasn't able to find a contact e-mail. I paid a good price for the model (~$76 with shipping brand new) and the seller did a good job of packaging it - so I'm not thinking of returning it just for this minor thing. Since this is the 2nd Kyosho R8 model that arrived with the lens detached - it has got to be Kyosho using poor gluing techniques or something.
Has anyone had success with ordering die-cast replacement parts from Kyosho? Does anyone have any suggestions on gluing these 2 clear plastic halves together as-to eliminate the appearance of the crack as much as possible? Or even better, does anyone have a damaged Kyosho R8 for-parts in which I can buy this lens cover from you?
