  1. Hi All. After a recent acquisition from Evilbay for £10.50, this little racer has got me all pepped up, so what do we have? As the title says, the subject of interest is the Model 100 Bugatti racer in 1/72 by an unknown to me, Projekts Model Co. The Bugatti racer was designed in the early 1930's with the view of racing it in the 1939 Deutsch de la Meurthe Cup Race but wasn't completed before the outbreak of WW2 and like the Caudron C.714R racer, was hidden away until after the war. As you will see, the Bugatti racer was a very futuristic design to achieve the highest possible speeds. Two 450hp Bugatti type 50B racing engines were mounted behind the cockpit, each driving a shaft either side of the pilot to drive two, two-bladed contra-rotating propellers. Cooling intakes were located on the leading edges of the tri-tail assembly. It wasn't until 1970 that the decaying aircraft was bought by an American, restored and on static display at the EAA Aviation Museum. A nice pic from the Speedbirds book. The kit. The plastic, obviously limited run. The pictures. Their is also a correction sheet... After getting the kit, it was @Moa who helped with reference, thanks. Not to sure when this will kick into action as I've got to 'clear the decks' of other stuff first, hopefully soon. Stuart
