My name is Nicolas Zapata from Mexico City.
I am a Bugatti enthusiast although I do not own one.I race a 1956 Ferrari TR at the Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge.
I own a Type 35 1:8 from Auto (Art?) Collection which I bought new in Paris about 20 yrs ago.
I recently found through friends a kit from the same manufacturer and would like to build it and paint it like that of a French artist in the 30's with a very special colour scheme.Art collection had them for sale for awhile but I cannot longer find a photo.
Can anybody help me with Photos of this car?
Thank you,N Zapata

Welcome to the forum.

I have the same car, in "challenger" edition, so I have to assemble it myself. I am curious to learn how you judge the quality. I heard several stories complaining about missing parts, bad quality, etc. For as far as I can see my kit is complete (after resending some materials to the former owner of the kit) but some materials are bad (corrosion of the bodyscrews, for example). Anyhow, with a bit of work it can make a fantastic car.

The colour scheme you are referring to is a product of the artist "Sonia Delaunay". I guess this will help your search.

As soon as Art Collection announced the new website, I downloaded the old website completely.

I have uploaded a bunch of photos to the photo server, enjoy!
