does anyone have any experience with trying to obtain complete sprues from AFV Club?, I know their website doesn't have a shop but wondered if a direct contact and request would work?

TIA

Direct would not work. They only provide sprues to customers in Taiwan. You have to find someone there to get the sprues for you. I recommend this ebay seller - I ordered AFV Club sprues through him several times: https://www.ebay.com/usr/moon03tw

I too have ordered spues through this guy. He is a great guy to deal with and has always come through for me.

Facebook is the best way to get in touch with AFV but they will refer you to their distributor in your country. In the USA that is Merit International. But, Merit is not very friendly or accomodating. I had asked them about correcting some AFV Club Sherman tracks that had the wrong parts packed in sealed boxes. They basically said "pound sand" and do not bother us.

I find they're about 45% . They were nice enough, just not ultra helpful. When it worked, it worked fine . When it didn't, the 55% ,......
