Flying Scotsman bits

Can you help me, I don't know how to go about getting parts that are missing from The Flying Scotsman Loco Mag. I am short two spaces and four screws,from main chassis, (issue four). This is my first attempt at modeling.

My first suggestion would be to get the appropriate back-number of the magazine from the publishers. Try the website:

There is an FAQ:
Q : How can I get back copies?
A : To order back copies, please contact our Customer Care Team. Please note that it can take up to 21 days to deliver your back copies from receiving your request.

Hotline number: Call our hotline on 0871 472 4240

If this doesn't work, you'll need to try some model railway suppliers. My first suggestion would be to buy a copy of Railway Modeller magazine and ring around some of the smaller suppliers to see what they can do. A good starting point would be Modelex ( who are listed as a supplier in the first issue.

I'd also call Squires ( and get a copy of thier catalogue. They sell bolts and other useful tools.

Good luck.
