I'm tired of looking in all the wrong places, so will ask all of you. Is there a rubber bumper model of a "B" made? I'm not to picky which scale. All I seem to find is the chrome bumper cars and of course GT's.
Thanks in advance,

I have only seen 1/18 scale MGBGT's with "rubber bumpers", have not seen roadsters. I just did a search and only came up with chrome bumper cars...even the MG Car Club site in England did not show the RB models. Of course, as Tom said, you can buy from K & R but they are 1/43 scale and not that great of a model, in my humble opinion. I have five of K & R's cars that I bought as kits. Not cheap. You can get them as assembled models for a higher price. I bought my Citron BGT from but they now show no RB MG's only chrome.

Here is a picture of what I did with mine...

Check out E-Bay for Aoshima 1/24th scale models.

There are four available; one is a rubber bumpered model.

These are not die-cast, but are nicely detail plastic kits.

They typically sell for about $50 plus shipping.
