Anybody happen to have a sprue K (storage box that goes on the back of the Firefly's radio box) for Asuka's 35-027 or 028 Sherman Ic? Appears newer releases of the kit no longer have it. Looked on their site and they dont have the sprue in the spares section.

That box is a standard Northwest Europe 75mm turret bin, and not normal to the Fireflys. I made a bin from sheet plastic to use on my M4A4 project to show a bent up bin, but I used the kit parts as a template, and sorry to say they got lost in the shuffle.

The K sprue looks sold out. Maybe if you give them a nudge they will re-pop more.
