Model: Bugatti type 57G Le Mans Chassis number of original car: 57455 Scale: 1:24 Producer: [[Le Mans Miniatures]] Product number: 124078 Form of delivery: kit, painted kit, ready built Materials: resin, photo etch, chromed brass, rubber Accuracy level: very good Skill: intermediate Price range: 150 euro (kit), 220 euro (painted kit) or 660 euro (built) ---- [[Ettore Bugatti]] developed a special car for [[Le Mans 1937]]. He had only one objective: Win the race. The result was a streamlined car, with plenty of power and durability. [[Le Mans Miniatures]] made a very, very nice model, which leaves only little to desire. (more on that later). The body shape is perfect, the photo etch grille is a work of art on it's own. And behind the grill you will find the 3rd headlight. The wheels are so nice, that I bought a second set of wheels (they are sold seperately as well) to replace the wheels of the [[Bugatti type 59 by Will's Finecast]]. So what leaves to be desired? There is no opening hood, and no engine! At least one model builder solved this by making a new hood and engine, which can be seen in one of the photos. All in all a great kit, which makes for an eyecatcher in your collection. ---- http://www.bugattibuilder.com/photo/albums/userpics/10003/normal_436o.jpg http://www.bugattibuilder.com/photo/albums/userpics/10003/ab96_1_LMM_24.jpg Engine conversion: http://www.bugattibuilder.com/photo/albums/userpics/10003/normal_IMAG0067.JPG http://www.bugattibuilder.com/photo/albums/userpics/10003/normal_IMAG0070.JPG ---- Links: Photo page of scale model on Bugattibuilder.com: [[http://www.bugattibuilder.com/photo/thumbnails.php?album=157]] Photo page of original car on Bugattibuilder.com: [[http://www.bugattibuilder.com/photo/thumbnails.php?album=841]]
