Brad is a one man operation so he finds it very difficult to provide stock for other suppliers while keeping up with individual orders.  Unless you are international it's pretty easy to order from him other than I think he only accept checks.   Yes these days not having a website and electronic payment sux but since he probably will not be doing many shows outside Maryland anymore there aren't any other alternatives.

Randy from modelbuilderswh.com   has great service  and like most suppliers, most kits are out of stock.  but Randy  will do his best to get parts and kits ASAP.   i would send him a message from his web site  to get fastest reply.

Having trouble getting parts from HRM. What's the best way to order?

Call Brad during the week (EST daytime).  I’m guessing he is 80+ and he does not use PayPal or have a website.  Once you get a hold of him he will be very helpful.  Randy @ Modelbuilderswh.com tries to keep HRM kits and [arts in stock but they sell out very quickly.

Short answer is no but JC found a list he posted below. JC’s Fotki page Steelers43 also shows some of the parts Brad had made over the years.  Brad is 80+ and a one man operation and does not have a website or sell on Ebay.  Calling him or going through modelbuilderswh.com are about your only options.

Here are the two masters Norm (plaid shirt) and Brad (black shirt and watch) discussing their latest projects.  Also in the pictures are JC (green sweater) and myself (blue jacket behind Brad) and the rest of the MAMA gang at the last regular meeting in February 2020 (pre-Covid).  I cannot remember who was working of the Ferrari bread wagon.  That was my CMA GT40 which I did finish using some HRM parts.

Thanks for the reply. I found Steelers 43's Fotki pages. There are items there that I was unaware of. There are also items I have seen that aren't there. If anyone else has some web pages with other items that will help me in putting together an order. \

Thanx,
B.

Thanks JC.  I had never seen a list like that but we all took so much for granted before last year.  I was happy to get the FIA Cobra kit earlier this year and to buy parts from Brad over the last 25 years at the MAMA meetings or Mid-Atlantic NNL or NNL East.  I did not realize (unless I forgot) he did an upgrade kit for the Gunze Cobra kit.
