This is a Testors/Italeri kit, which I found was quite a good, detailed, easy to build kit. Thanks for looking.

One of my most favorite old school Bugatti's.
Of course the Veyron is my favorite, if not looks at least the power.

You did a great job on that. Just a beautiful car.

I receently picked up the Gunze version of the Royale, but with "Victoria" cabriolet coachwork. Is this the same tooling, or comepletely different? I figured that for $5, I could at least open the bags and use it for parts...

I can't say for sure Dave, but I suspect they are very similar, at least as far as the chassis/engine are concerned. The most significant changes on the Royale line were the body work but different coach-builders. My kit had a bunch of parts left over including a different grill etc so I suspect the tooling of a lot of the parts are for several different kits.
