Default Tamiya Sherman suspension parts

I have an older sherman I purchased used. Little did I know they did not locktite anything and after a few minutes running it, a bunch of screws came out and were lost as well as springs and a couple of road wheels. Any place stock these parts or make upgrades?

Have you tried calling the Danville Tank Museum? I think that Tamiya quit making their 1/16 Sherman but you might be able to find some parts for it at the AAF Museum. My wife built that very same model and it has been a fantastic runner but you do have to LocTite all the screws.

Most of the screws are m3.
i suggest you go look for your parts in the dirt as hard as you can.
AAF likely has nothing left.

AAF had screw bags in stock, so am hopefully good. Also found a suspension parts bag in New Zealand and ordered it since I also lost a spring.

Unfortunately, lost the screws in a park several years ago and no chance of finding them.
