I know they weren't - this is why they are called aftermarket stuff...
It's all McMaquette's fault!

Coming along very nicely, and as far as the Zimmerit is concerned: Who cares how "neat" it looks, as most of the vehicles that had the stuff put on in the field work shops were haphazardly done anyhow. And lets not forget it is after all a tank and is gonna be a monstrosity anyways! Keep up the good work, and I am taking notes (Tamiya Ausf E to build) !!

Man, I HATE when that happens. I had at least three or four Revell kits where key parts were missing. I even had a 1/32 P-38 from them where the center section of the wing was partially melted! Always frustrating to have to get spares from the company. . . I wish you the best in your endeavor.

Hey, at least the model is coming along beautifully!

What did they forget? (write it down to me in french too, please)
maybe I can help, I have some unused parts including an unused DML turret right side... or if it is not what you are after, I'll take a look/ask around.

the missing part is the turret, (la tourelle) the part D21:
