U.S. stowage kits have arrived!

Finally! Ready to sell the new U.S. stowage kit!

Price is $39.99 plus shipping $9.61 anywhere in NA. for those in the U.K. $15.47

There are so many details and extras in this package from the ammo box decals for both the main gun boxes and the .30 and .50 cal boxes, to the carry handles supplied separately and not molded onto the boxes. I love that because you can position them how you like more realistically. The .30Cal MG which alone would sell for like $15.00! I have all 3 types of ammo boxes for the Shermans. 76mm, 75mm, and 105. The 75mm is what is pictured here, picture #3. The 105 would be for Tamiya and HL models, if you have a Fury model from say Hooben, then the 76mm is for you, and the 75mm goes with the Metal Mato model or any of the scratchbuilts from the makers on here. You will also receive 25 sandbags and one of my famous scrim nets as shown on my early Sherman in the pics. Plus you also get the piece of real hardwood board (Shown last pic mounted on my Firefly) as seen on the front of so many Shermans. The one you will receive is not notched but just straight across for regular transmission cover.

As my way of saying sorry for taking so long, for a limited time I am going to include the add on armour plates that you see on so many Shermans. As far as I know I am the only little supplier making them. They will retail for $12.00 but for a limited time are included in this package! I am sorry I haven't got pics of them painted and mounted yet because the final components have just arrived. Although I do have pics of the ammo boxes as seen here and a quick and easy guide to painting them to an acceptable level for you. The rest will be done soon promise! :-)

Any questions at all let me know! To order send me a PM for details!

Could always fill a truck with it. I have a couple of Sherman’s 1 76 and one 75 but I haven’t decided on how they will be decorated yet

you can also order an extra set of ammo cases if you like. They are $12.00 for a set. Then you can split the kit between 2 tanks! :D

That looks like a very nice and comprehensive set Dean, typical of the busily stacked rear decks seen on a lot of shermans, I can see this set adorning many models here :thumbup:

Cheers, Lee.

Jeez you do good work Mr Selkirk
Any thoughts of a German set for StuGs for example ?

There is a lot of German stuff out there. Perhaps not as good a deal as I would be able to put together but for now wasn't planning on it... :D

My set arrived and I'm very impressed. The details are excellent and the kit parts will need very little prep before I start working on them. The ammo crates even have metal wire handles!

Sand bags extra armor plating with welds already made, what else could you want

Absolutely worth every penny

Thanks for the kind words Carl! Yes, it is a hell of a deal. In fact it is only going to run for 2 more weeks and then the plates and sandbags will be removed from the kit. I am running out of sandbags and until this COVID thing is over can't get anymore...

Yikes! I forgot last week. I just emailed you my order. What a deal! Of course, two other items just slipped in, too.
