Love it ! This transkit looks gorgeous , especially the motor. I've been curious about this kit for a while now, and from what i can see ,it looks well worth the investment in time and money. You have my attention sir.

The transkit is absolutely worth the money.  HRM's resin is gorgeous!!

Great work. I really like the photo of your Cobra production line. Harold Bradford sure does nice work on his resin parts and bodies but I am not sure if I have ever seen one of his own models.

Harold is a friend of mine and his builds are every bit as nice as his resin.  Unfortunately for him (but fotunate for us) his resin business keeps him too busy to build much.

Does Harold have plans for a 289 Competition Roadster?

Do you mean a 289 FIA?  He makes one of those already.  As for a 'standard' 289, there's not much above and beyond the street car.

The earlier competition cars (1963) that ran the kidney bean Halibrand wheels. There's a photo of one next to the Le Mans hardtop. These cars ran at Sebring in 1963.
