This page at T48 has a list and contact details. I've built several of his models and have been very pleased with them. He is very good at what he does.

I haven't built it, but I have his kit for the Cruiser Mk IV. If you're interested in seeing what the parts for one of his kits looks like, I can pull it out and take photos!
