I have a HO scale Centennial Models Inc. #102 "Hercules Mining Stamp Mill" kit. I'm missing the instructions and wonder if anyone out there can help.

I just googled on Google Books and it looks like a search of "Practical Stamp Milling" will give you a lot of free info... maybe some pertinent plans - from the late 19th-early 20th centuries... hope this helps!

May I suggest that you contact Keith Wiseman of Wiseman Model Services. I know that Keith has been very active in obtaining some of the older model kit lines. I don't think that he picked up Centennial Models, but he may have knowledge of who may have. You could then possibly contact the new owner for assistance.

I'd say the same thing for Walt at Rusty Stumps Scale Models, but as Walt keeps a pretty good eye here on the forum, I suspect that if he had any knowledge he would probably have already jumped in.
Another contact source you may want to contact to see if they have the kit is: http://fsmkits.homestead.com/kitsforsale.html and maybe they could help.
One final idea is Underground Railway Press. I'm hesitant to bring up this company as I have not had any experience with them and have never heard anything really good, but it may be worth a shot.
Just an idea...

Aaarrrrgh! I figured I'd have a chance here... Does anyone have any good ideas I could try? I've asked on all my Yahoo! Groups, Googled it, and asked around the club. is there somewhere I'm missing that may be able to help?
