  1. I did the same thing with mine. Ended up reusing the kit extinguisher and relocated it to the correct position inside the car.
  2. No one makes the correct R Model dash. I had to make my own for my build of Alan Bolte's 5R101. I think I sculpted the shape out of Tamiya Epoxy Putty. I'm not sure. Also, I had to make my own door panels and the biggest problem you will have are the fender flares. Keep in mind that no two R Models are alike.
  3. #11 and #29 are both the same car. 5R105. Originally, it was painted the Wimbledon White with the Guardsman Blue stripes, and raced by Mark Donohue, who really wanted to be a driver for Shelby American. Unfortunately, he was not selected, so he had 5R105 repainted in Guardsman Blue with white stripes as a protest. Eventually, Shelby got wind of this, and urged Donohue to repaint the car Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue stripes. I plan to build 5R105, but will be doing the restored version. Legendary Motorcar Co. up in Canada restored this car and 5R100 to concours quality specs.
  4. Do you have photos of the Thunder Valley trans kit? It's required to build 5R105 (The Mark Donohue car)
  5. What did you use to cut the tape for the stripes? They look good!
  6. Can't wait to see how this one turns out. I have the same one that will be built bone stock.
  7. Can't wait to see how this one turns out. I'm still stuck on doing the right rear fender flare on my R Model build.
  8. They look amazing. I will have to try this with my other R Models!
  9. Nice. I would love to do the Mexico car but I may end up doing the restored version or the one in the photo.
  10. Here's the car I plan to build, 5R101. I like how the restored version has two different numbers on it, which is how I plan to build the car.
  11. Yep. I wonder what serial number the top car is. I know the Mexico car is 5R108 (I plan to do this car), but I'm not sure about the next photo. The Le Mans car is 5R539 and decals are available through VRM.
  12. I'm doing my current R-Model build as 5R101 when it was owned by Alan Bolte. I have a bunch to do as the Mark Donohue car (5R105), Essex Wire/Rick Kopec (5R098), Dick Jordan's Jack Loftus car (5R106), Jochen Neerpasch (5R107), Jerry Titus (5R001), the Comstock car (5R096), Walt Hane's car (5R103), Howard Pardee (5R095), Charlie Kemp (5R538), Claude DuBois (5R539), Dockery Ford (5R100), Pedro Rodriguez (5R108), Dan Gerber (5R099), and possibly the Cobra Caravan car (5R213). The Monogram bodies need to be brought up to par with an R Model, and a lot of items need to be added or scratch built. I have reference photos of 5R101 and shots of various R Models. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
  13. Hi guys. I am in need of some parts from Historic Racing Miniatures, and I have been having trouble getting hold of Harold Bradford. Is there a way to get the parts I need? I am looking for a couple of the Cobra oil pans, a couple sets of valve covers with breather caps, and a Weber carburetor set. I have my PayPal account ready to purchase these parts if any of you have them available. Thanks!
  14. Having trouble getting parts from HRM. What's the best way to order?
  15. Are there any more model car shows happening after October of this year? I know Spirit of Speed is on the 10th.
  16. GAAAAAH! I forgot about those! That kit is one of my holy grails! Of course I would love to see that reissued!
