>plastic eye piece?

As long as you got the correct part #, HLJ will order it from Bandai for
you. I know they do this for customers who ordered the kit from them, but
do not know whether they do this for people who got their kits from other
vendors, as I haven't used this service myself (I got friends in Japan who
did it for me gratis before HLJ even offered this service).

>Seeesh! How much will that cost? And what about shipping ?

Since HLJ uses UPS exclusively for all orders shipped to the U.S., expect
to pay more than is justifiable for shipping alone. As for the cost of the
part itself, look up your kit's manual. There will be a coupon with dotted
lines around it so people can clip it out and send it to Bandai to order
parts. Next to the coupon they will tell you which parts cost how much,
and the corresponding shipping charges (from Bandai to a Japanese address).
This will most likely be added to your total cost, should you decide to
order the part from HLJ.

Basically it comes down to a choice of living with an imperfect model,
buy another kit for the part, or spend just a bit less just for the part
you need (depending on the kit's size and price).
