Hi there,

Edit: The pieces are no longer obligatory as I finished the model already, still they're a welcome addition to my K'NEX collection :)

For my Slave I, I'm desperately looking for this piece:
http://www.knexusergroup.org.uk/acatalog/info_K90973.html
(Also seen in attachment)

Do any of you guys have two of these? I found two of them in two separate ebay offers: both costing 20$ or more, let alone shipping to Europe, so I'm not going to do that.
So if any of you:
have them and want to lend them, or
have them and want to sell them, or
know where I can find them...
Then give me a reply or a personal message: it would really finish my next model.

First ebay offer: http://www.ebay.com/itm/KNEX-Lot-of-2-Large-Baggies-Full-of-Pieces-/152039196073?hash=item23663e05a9
Second: http://www.ebay.com/itm/KNex-Lot-317-Pieces-/111959524817?hash=item1a114ec5d1

Edit: I also need a mini rocket (preferably 2 of them aswell) that appeared in the "MechWarrior" series... Anyone have these?

Thanks! I guess I should keep searching for it... remember I need 2 of them :/ which makes it trickier. Knowing the set in which they appear also helps!!
I've added another piece that I need!

I found the set!!!

They also come in this set: http://www.knex.com/instructions/instruction-books/Saturn-V-Rocket-15122.pdf There are two of those in that set.

(that set is also quite fun, so many good memories with that set, heehee)

I did. initially I totally forgot about it, but I checked most offers. Also I checked out "2e hands.be", but nop. Or at least, not as individual parts.

Yeah, it fits with the other thurster-bar >:D I started to like it better too. Thanks for the compliment! ;D
When making that left one... I was thinking in Jumbo-jet-engines >:3 and most of all their sound when starting up...
(I'm going to use the same technique for in the X-Wing... guess where? ;) )

Haha, perhaps a good catch-phrase... "I'm no builder, I'm a modeller 8) "
