:o Doing his national service in Egypt - I think! Knowing him it was nicked from the Brighton Corpy Transport Depot. Half the stuff in my inherited tool collection has obviously come from there or has the arrow on it from his REME TA days!

As I just came across an article in one of my PC magazines (http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Ideen-ma ... 69277.html): did you try one of those "3D-printing" companies?

Might perhaps be an option for small plastic parts (starter/horn buttons), although I have no idea how stable their parts are.

A few links:

Simples... I emailed Domino (the original equipment manufacturer) and asked for two (one for the Grenade and one for Son of Grenade).
