u might have to readjust the uv maps, or scale the images in C4D surface editor
I don't use C4D

Looks like Andy Crooks model, I still have the lwo and loaded it into C4D:
most parts have uv-mapped textures, but does not have a uv-map. So the quickest method is to apply other texture projections like flat mapping and rescale. It will work for the flat parts. For cylindrical or spherical parts try cylinder or sphere mapping.

1. image: Locate the part you want to remap in the object manager, click on the material tag right of the part's name. Go to the atrribute manager and change the projection from uv-mapping to flat mapping.
Now the texture will be projected from top down onto the object but is still not scaled correctly.
2. image: Just right click the material tag and click "Fit to object" and it will scale atomatically.
3. image: Or use the scale and move tool to adjust the texture map manually. (Activate both buttons in the red circles)
