Hi, Nick. Sorry about your bad luck with the kit. Looks like you may have gotten it from e-bay, and I'm guessing you've progressed too far building it to ask the seller for a refund. I'm probably re-stating a point you've already figured out when I say I always check the contents of the box carefully when I buy a second-hand kit from e-bay.

Going to be an extreme long-shot for someone on KMN to have a spare sprue E hanging about un-used. Seems to me your options are:
a.) Wait until August and buy another kit (ouch!)
b.) Try your hand at scratch-building the missing parts
c.) Finish the vehicle as battle-damage or derelict and create a vignette for it.

Good luck!
