Hello Group,

When I visited the Sergent web site last week I did not find any listing of the EC87A β€” the assembled couplers β€” on the order list. Have these been discontinued? Does anyone on the list have knowledge of this or know that the assembled couplers are available or not?

I have sent Sergent an e-mail inquiry but so far have not received a reply.

My reason for asking is that with my old dog age shaky hands and less than perfect eyesight I am not sure that I would be able to assemble the β€œkit” couplers. Thus the reason for the use of the EC87A assembled versions.

Cheers & Happy Modeling,

To answer Bill's original question, I believe Frank announced about 6 months ago that he would no longer be offering the assembled couplers because it was just getting to be too much work for him. I remember it coming up on the list but don't have my old messages handy at the moment.

I don't mind assembling them myself but have been lazy about getting around to painting the parts first.
