Are there forums or sites where you can buy or sell parts from incomplete kits? I need 4 pieces to make this kit complete. I've seen individual sprues and parts from other kits on ebay, but nothing for this kit.

Its a rare beast to find now and the full kits that are out there are still making silly prices so you may not find what your looking for.

You could try casting the parts you need if ther small and not major parts in resin although this would mean making the molds ect but it looks like the only way you will get those parts now.
Current builds:-C57,Zero, Lamborghini Countach, Caldercraft HMS Agamemnon,Robi,R2-D2, MFH Cobra .

It would help if you tell us the parts you need...
Maybe someone could suggest alternatives, or even ways of making the parts.

The Entex M23 has been out of production since 1980 and unlikely you’ll find what your looking for without having to buy into a part started kit possibly on eBay which still has the unassembled parts your need, though won’t be easy to find as even the complete kit has become a ‘holy grail’ to find and at crazy cost.

Here's what I'm missing:

D13: Oil cooler A
K12: Front wing, left lower surface
K13: Front wing, right
M2: Lower body part (actually not necessary to building the model)

I could probably get them 3D printed. I know of several people with the printers, but not the scanners.

There are two D13's in the kit. I have one of them. I suppose there must be a 3D printing service that could scan the part and print me a copy.

K12 is a mirrored copy of K11. Ditto for K13 and K14. You could scan the part, tell the software to mirror it, and then print it out.

If I could get someone to do that for $100 it would probably be worth it.
