Excellent !

BTW: couldn't find any picture, but let me ask you: the number on the Volvo is pictured correct (#19) ?

I don't ever actually count them as a whole, that might make it seem more daunting, I just take them a race set at a time, unless I'm just doing a basic set that covers the average race entries, without paying mind to the onsies here and there...which is hard for me to do, like the sets done by year to be complete...no one gets left behind...

So for this 1968 Trans Am set with both O2 and U2 the per race car count averages 20-22 cars per race with the larger fields being Riverside, Kent and Sebring...

So 22 x 13 = is 286 cars...of course some of those car counts include cars that appear in multiple races, so that cuts down the number of actual skins need to have a complete set...

In 1968 you have the Shelby Racing Team with many driver switches as Titus jumps back and forth from the #1 to the #2 car so you have to have the same car with different CAR files, then you had Parnelli Jones and David Pearson in cars before Horst Kweck came over from the U2 side...then you have them going to the blue cars later in the season, so that means you have Titus and Kweck swapping those cars, then Titus leaves after Riverside and Peter Revson comes on board....but where did Revson come from? The Javelin Team, so now who's driving the #3 Javelin for Kaplan? So you see it gets crazy...the two car Shelby Racing team ends up having like 12 cars in the set...

I keep saying 22 cars at Lime rock, I keep forgetting that George Follmer's #4 Javelin wasn't able to start the race...just 21 cars in the set...10 O2 + 11 U2 cars

Started doing any non-white helmets I could find in the color images...not a lot of them but a few just to break up the monotony of white buckets in every car...

Was struggling with Horst Hwech's helmet...it wouldn't show, so I'm trying all sorts of combinations of numbers in the Genstring to make it show, no luck...then it hits me...I bet I spelled his name "Horst Kweck" which is an easy mistake...sure enough, fix his name on the Helmet .dds file and BAMM it shows up...there's 40 minutes of my life I'll never get back.....LOL

Sorry I missed your question SpecK...as far as I can discern, not a lot of images that are actually of this car, it appears in the background of the more commonly known cars...

Are you asking if the number style is correct? I believe it is.

The #19 @ Bridgehampton

The best shot of the Huber Volvo yet...I'll need to update my skin now...but happy to do it...I made an educated guess on what was on that rear quarter, I wasn't far off, but now I really know what it said back there...LOL

OK so this Cooper Mini finishes up the Bridgehampton set...

There is some writing on the Union jack that I haven't been able to make out so I left it off...also there is some script above that stylized "S" black and red rectangular decal that I could only read part of so that too is not on this skin, maybe if I find a better clear image of this car at Bridgehampton I can update it and certainly will if that happens...it has a Hot wheels thing going on for the St Jovite race, and none of that stuff is on the car at that point.

and I started working on my "To-Do" list stuff...One of those items was adding the "RKE" logo to the front fender of the Javelins...

I ended up making that one myself...

Race 7 @ Meadowdale is Complete!



Yes that orange thing in the back is an NSU 1000TT...no driver, but it's there...only thing not fictional about it is the driver name above the door and the number on the side...not a single image came out of my hours and hours of searching the web for anything to work with...but at least we have the NSU #72 in the set...

OK where was I?

OH Yes St. Jovite....

I have to make a list of U@ cars...I've been away from this doing a 2003 Trans Am set on another mod and some other side projects, but I believe I can come back to this again now...six more sets to go, well 7 when you count Sebring and the Daytona U2 class makes 8...HMMM, I thought I was close to being done, I guess I was wrong...

I love this project...

‘It was an absolute spellbinder, the sort of race you dream about with Geoghegan in his Falcon and Moffat in his Mustang fighting a slipstreaming and braking duel right around the spectacular track and tearing side by side down the 1 1/2 mile long Conrod Straight at more than 160mph and becoming airborne over the humps’.

More pics and quote I made

Holden HQ " not the Kingswood ! " with Repco V8 from F5000
You can see how different those beasts look to their "Bathurst 500" production counterparts
in rFactor Bathurst Legends '69 '72 mods

Hardie-Ferodo 500 mod would be cool mod, check the car list

Hi Highbank,
We had the pleasure of seeing this ex-RKE Javelin today at the
SVRA Portland vintage races.

I can not tell you how many hours I have into searching for a color image of this car...
The #26 Javelin driven by Janeth Guthrie and Liane Engeman at Sebring 1968...

Today, another search, and BANG...success...I can't tell you enough that you have to clear you browser after every search, change something in your search description and sometimes it pays off...


I knew it was dark, I had thought it to be a dark maroon or red....but here it is...blue!

Thought I quit? NEVER!

I've been working on several other things BUT progress on this baby goes on!

I've gone back to race 1 so I'm working on the Daytona U2 class cars, color images be hard to come by my friends...a few wonderful shots then it's dig deeper and unfortunately at some point it's time for educated or just plain old blind guessing...I love it when you find a description under an image of a car and it says: "Color: dark" WHAT? really? yep it looks dark in that picture to me too....LOL

So a revision on the #65 Mustang...found some new images of some cars that helped out tremendously...then the Daytona versions of some cars that I had done previously for other race sets...

I'm going to look at some sounds, or listen to them as it were and see if we can't improve but I don't really want to be messing with the modding that much, and everybody kinda has their own tastes..

With that said, I'm not a fan of the Camaro sounds at all...LOL
