Definitely do not break or misplace a part.I broke a rear suspension arm and wrote to ask about a replacement and reading between the lines, their reply said"We don't have enough kits so please don't ask for a replacement part!"
Even with some of the difficulties with the kit it is really good to see it selling this well.
Maybe this will lead to other companies coming out with more offerings.

Jeez, you received the most god awful copy of this kit!

You should send some of your pictures to BeeMax.

They owe you another kit because yours looks nothing like mine.

@Torsten: May I ask if you have considered contacting Beemax / NuNu directly regarding the issues you have with this kit? Surely, the list of issues in your particular kit could be corrected by contacting Beemax / NuNu with an appropriately written message.

Please do the forum a favour - do contact Beemax / NuNu and let us know of the eventual outcome.

Cheers, Paul

I already did - because the "problems" are on both off my kits - the answer:
"It is a unavoidable mold seam on both sides of the cowl and also unavoidable ejector marks on large parts.
The modeller need to sand down the excess smoth."
No comment regarding the crack in the floor (yes i know, putty and sand down solve the issue) and the scratches on the diffusor yet.

First i was sure, i made the scratches during my sanding session:

But, these scratches are also on the other kit to.

Diffusor from the second kit:

Diffusor from the first kit after todays 6 hour sanding session - need some more finer sanding to get a clean surface at the end.

Okay, finally: due comments like "bitching", "so much crying", "acting like a child" - i will stop here with posting any details of the kit or my progress - because looks like everyone is happy with the kit and i'm the only one who expect quality for the price of this kit.
I will not leave like other but i wll be quiet to make the other members happy.

Thanks.

Those marks in the red circles are very likely in the tool, so any replacement part will be the same. If they didn't fix it before production they won't do it later. Money and timing issues it seems and someone decided to "live with it".

Nobody said you're not allowed to complain about mistakes in a product. Especially when you prove it. That's what we're here for among other things.
Just don't take it so personal if someone sees it differently.
We're dealing with opinions here and not absolute truths.

I never thought different opinions about a model kit would mean multiple people stop posting here. Sorry to see people go...

Please continue to post your observations and efforts with this kit. Absolutely amazed that some members think those comments you quote above are in any way acceptable. Sick and bloody tired of reading snide, snarky and rude comments about different people's levels of interest and ability in dealing with the trials and tribulations of building these kits and if I see one more along the lines of someone being a kit assembler instead of a model builder I think I may vomit. Some of you need to get over yourselves and have a bit more civility and understanding.
