Famo Bolts

Hi all, just started my Famo build ,but when I came to fit the bump stops to the brackets I coud not find the M6 X 10 grub screws.
They are not listed in the fasteners list, are they in a separate bag or not in the kit. Did other builders have the same problem?.
Regards Walter.

Re: Gluing rivets

Hi Kevin.
I have used super glue on some models , but have used Gorilla Glue too. on the wheels and tyers of my 251, it expands whilst cureing, so fills in any gaps. I apply the glue to the holes, wet the rivet and push home.
Hope this is some help.
Regards Walter.

Re: Sherman kit

Hi Richard.

Peters right, phone some local shippers, wooden crates to Australia have to have a certificate to show that it is free from any insects in the wood, or it wont get through customs ect. Hope this helps.
