Ken,

Mission Models has the M3 Lee upgrade set and the M3 Grant upgrade set and Michigan Discount Models has some Sherman related products in stock.

Your best bet is to wait till the AMPS Nationals...ABM shows up to that and gets quicky wiped out. Just make sure that you check your parts before he leaves so you don't get short changed something and have to wait a year to finish a kit...like me.

Thanks guys. I was looking for their kit # 019
"Early Production Sherman & Lee/Grant Suspension Set"
It seems everyone who does carry their products does not have this kit.
Does anyone know how to get in touch with them?

You can't....they have horrible customer service...sorry to say. I tried for over a year to get my missing parts and Flamed the company on Missing-lynx over this. They make great stuff, but getting it is impossible for the most part

I will see Sid next week. If anyone wants anything let me know. I will try to find out availability, prices and so on. If anyone needs a replacement part, I might be able to help there too.

Roger that. I'll be in Ottawa next Wednesday night. Hope to hoist one or two with Sid. Will ask him then. If he has one, would you like me to pick it up for you. His mailing rates and mine will be about the same. put bold text here

Hello Ken,
I was in Ottawa earlier this week but due to a change in timings, I wasn't able to meet up with Sid. However, I spoke to him on the phone and he does have the kit you are looking for in stock. I will be in Ottawa again on Wednesday of next week and hopefully will be able to pick up the kit for you.
Cheers
Paul
