Squirrel damage to my collection

After 45 years of building and collecting Keil Kraft models ( still building with my youngest son ) I have / had a full collection of both the KK flying scale and Veron thru- flite models. A squirrel has gnawed through an 18mm ply box and used some prize balsa as bedding - arghhhh
I've replaced most of the damaged boxes but am now struggling to find :
KK chevron stuka
kk chevron Cessna 140
Veron chipmink - with red/yellow box end
veron fokker D8 - with red/ yellow ends
veron triplane - red/yellow box ends
veron buster- red / yellow box ends

Is anyone able to help? I have a certain amount of spare models from the series if anybody is in need.

ps. squirrel also ate my Astral Defiant !!

I had mice in my loft and they ate all the tissue of a 36" wing but did little damage to the balsa which I found rather surprising. :huh:

I'm so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I'm saying.

Crikey, just read this... I'm going to have to think about increased bio-security for my balsa supplies. All my modelling is done in a stable loft, easy access for everything! I had a sparrow hawk up there one night, we got so pally, it almost landed on my head!

'What the hell' is always the right answer...

Could you clad the boxes using tin cans opened and tacked on. I've seen this done . Not pretty but it works OK.Looks a bit better when painted

Presumed you meant you used a net to catch 'em?
