AXIA Skyline GT-R Gr.A broken parts

So I just received the AXIA Skyline kit, and thanks to the USPS I have a crushed box.

Opened it up, and guess which two pieces are broken.....
Yep, the body shell, right at the wind-screen posts, and the windscreen itself.....

GREAT....

If it had been a shock absorber or something, not such a big problem.

Now I know the kit was produced back around 1991, and Tamiya isn't likely to have replacement parts laying around.....

So my question is... Will the body shell and windshield from a GT-R R32 work as a replacement?

I think I can find that a lot easier.
And I am afraid if I turn it in with the USPS for the insurance, they will obviously want the kit itself.
So if I can replace the parts easier with a donor kit, and keep all the racing goodies, that would be my preference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Yes, it will. The 2 kits share most of the parts! The body and the windshield are the same! Good luck getting those parts!

Still trying to source an R32 body shell to replace the cracked one that I received thanks to the Post Office.

Anybody have one that they could be convinced to part with?

In the post above yours Mr Plumb was proposing you a body shell and a windscreen.

He had said he had one he could either sell or get to me, but never did.
Messages stopped coming back.

Anybody have one for sale? Still need one.

I have one with a slightly warped roof. I guess it is fixable but I just don't have time.

If you want it you can have it for free.

any tamiya r32 body will replace yours, the gr.A versions just come with different parts in the kit...
so either a standard tamiya r32 gtr or remember there are plenty of others around that will be a similar kit that arnt as hard to find as your axia..... the calsonic gr.a for example.
i even scored some zexel group N r32's cheap as they arnt as sought after but are very similar to the gr.a kit.
