I put off actually getting any parts until I locate the large ramp, which I finally did a couple of months ago. As a matter of fact, I wound up winning a parts auction that also included the mechanical arm, an extra helipad, the long ramp, and three small ramps. Score. I think I paid $20 for the entire lot, which was great since the only other long ramp I had run across was running $30 by itself! I quickly sold off the helipad and ramps and set upon looking for a new gunner pod. Then I realized that I couldn't find my helipad! After a month of searching, I found it in the garage, of all places. I think that one of my kids took it in there to play with without my knowledge. Kids. The gunner pod, I bought from Flywheels on eBay. At the time, I didn't even realize that was who I had bought it from, I was just impressed with the price. By the way, visit his eBay store for some great deals!
Brr-Icy had contacted me on Facebook and was able to offer a great tip. Using Zippo lighter fluid really helped speed things along. After that came a quick wipe down with a magic eraser and then a few washes with warm soapy water.
