Bengalensis Posted December 30, 2022 Share Posted December 30, 2022 Back in March 2020 I started work on Bernd Rosemeyer's German GP 1936 winning Auto Union Typ C in 1/24 scale, and while discussing the representation of the front grille I wrote "I wouldn't mind a Typ C from MFH in 1/12"... Maybe MFH listened, I don't know, but in the summer 2022 this image appeared in a news letter, and on the MFH site it was announced: I pre ordered right away, it was impossible to resist, and in the late summer the kit arrived. I have been studying the parts since, and now it's time to revisit this fantastic car and driver and the German GP of 1936, now in 1/12 scale: Let's see what MFH provide in the box to work from then. First we have the larger resin parts. Then a lot of white metal parts. Two large sheets of photo etch. Outer rim parts in turned and drilled aluminium and moulded tyres. More smaller turned parts, clear parts, rubber parts, screws, spokes and nipples, rods, thread, wires, mesh etc. Decals for both Bernd Rosemeyer's winning #4 and Hans Stuck's second place #2 cars. No decals for Rudolf Hasse's #6 (4th) or Ernst von Delius' #8 (6th) cars, although I suspect almost all of these kits built will be finished as Rosemeyer's #4 anyway. Both black and red numbers provided brings up some interesting research questions I hadn't expected... And last some pretty well printed instructions. I plan to work on this one for a while, most likely with interruptions for other projects. We'll see what happens as time goes on. 17 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
