Default Parkzone T28 Firewall

Got two Parkzone Trojans laid up with smashed firewalls. Parkzone supply spare firewalls for other models but not this one. I see 3D printing plans for some plastic model plane parts are floating around. I'm wondering if anyone knows of one for this. Alternatively, what is the best way for me to get some printed? Grateful for any help.

Web site I noticed 3D plans for parts was "jeggi". Judging by the 3D printing efforts on this site, the repair of models is about to be revolutionised. Not only an avenue for making parts no longer supplied, but for promoting better design of parts that often fail. All models I've had to date seem to have at least some inadequately engineered parts. A real pain laying out money for the same part that regularly breaks.

Are you really looking for a "firewall" or the $3.00 motor mount......?

Seems a "firewall" for this model is part of the fuselage.........or at least it looks that way on mine.

Here's a link.......available parts:

http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...Z4475#t4-PARTS

Less crashes = less parts to scramble for........and reduces the time and expense of building a 3D printer.....unless one recovers that $$$ through volume of printed spare plastic parts....and is able to maintain sustainablity and technology intervention.....

Yep, looking for a firewall. It is not on parkzone wanting to sell customers a whole fuselage for a minor plastic part.

Can get parts in NZ OK but not of course the firewall. The firewall for the parkzone T28 is not supplied anywhere in the world as a stand alone part. Quite odd; only supply it with the whole body. $100 or so.
