        I picked up mine yesterday from a long-favored Hobby Store: "Walt's Hobby" in Crest Hill, IL. (just north of Joliet, on Rt.30). Beautiful car; and AFX is putting a unique detail on the two "Le Mans Mk.IVs" that have been released so far on the # 1 & # 3 cars: not only adding the outside mirrors, but putting them IN THE CORRECT LOCATIONS!

        The winning # 1 Gurney / Foyt Mk.IV has the driver side mirror on the door edge; the left side mirror out on the fender.

        The # 3 Andretti / Bianchi Mk. IV has both mirrors mounted on the door edge.

        When the Ford team was going through "inspection" for the '67 race, all four cars only had the rear view mirror inside the cockpit (as the Sebring winning Yellow # 1 car had). The French "Scruitineers" objected; as the flat window (partially obstructed by the two four-barrel induction system w/air box) left no rear vision at all. So, all four Mk.IVs were required to have a pair of outside mirrors (one per side).

        However, the location of those mirrors were left up to the teams; hence the different locations are due to driver preference. From pictures I have seen of the cars both on the grid/during the race, the yellow # 2 of McLaren / Donohue should have the same mirror setup as the # 1 car; the blue # 4 (Ruby / Hulme) has fender mirrors, but more on the outside edge of the fenders.

        Again, subtle but nice touches that AFX has incorporated into these Ford Mk. IVs..........

          Alas, no helmet bubble on the # 1.
          But I’m not complaining.

            Looks like that weird thing is still happening if you type # 1 without the space between 1 and #

            1# works though

              But, I HAVE put a space between them; I am looking at the posting now, and a space is between every # and number I typed......

                  Hard to tell, when you don't put in who you are communicating with, and in the past, you had directed those comments to me......

                    If I am replying to the post above mine I don't quote.

                    When replying to an older post I quote.

                      Quilty as charged.
                      I did go back and edit.
                      I forgot about the # sign and numeral baloney.
                      It’s really not worth it, guys.

                          What do you mean?

                          I noticed it had happened again, informed you, you edited it. Maybe it will get fixed some day.

                          All good.

                            I received some too, BAD being the appropriate word lately.

                            It's like dollar store quality.

                              Wow, I guess I've been getting lucky! No major body issues yet, but after I noticed a couple of your wheels were cracked, I checked mine and yes, a couple are split!
