Default Bag of screws and other hardware

... I was very grateful for generous extra bits and pieces that came with Protos. It helped me making second Protos out of nothing (spared parts, discarded plastic sides after stretching, etc). But near the end I run out of various screws. The worse was, at the end, I didn't have appropriate ones for fix the tail fin.

Now it came to me that I should go over there and get, buy one... But, to my surprise I couldn't find it!!! Was that intentional? I know that as soon as I start fixing any of my helicopters I would go and get a bag of extra hardware, but it seems that there is none for Protos.

What have you done? Any advice how to get assorted screws for Protos and where from? (Preferably from UK somewhere.)

I just buy DuBro screws in the lengths I need. You must have a hobby shop near that has Dubro or can deffinately get them online

RCScrews.com also sells complete kits. While stainless is not always stronger than Steel, even though he says they are. I am not sure his composition. I dont think they are pure stainless? I have used them with great results in all my Nitro cars, trucks and buggies. I do know the socket heads usually do not strip as easy as some stock screws
