Scale I Build

  1. FPPMODELOS 1/24 scale resin kit of the Auto-Union C made by Fernando Pinto Portugal, of the 1937 Vanderbilt Cup Race winner. WIP: Auto Union C - Vanderbilt Cup 1937 Bought the book Auto Union V16 Supercharged a technical appraisal hoping there would be good photos or illustrations, but found the best reference on the web, lucky to have downloaded a cutaway before the site disappeared. The car was ground-breaking in many ways, mid engine, aerodynamics, limited slip differential, use of aluminum, Dr. Ferdinand Porsche designed the car that challenged Mercedes Benz before WW2. The book described the evolution during the program, Porsche opted for a low reving engine vs. exotic fuels used by Mercedes. Other than the Hindenburg, this is the only other vehicle with the Swastika that burned up American territory, the race organizers mandated only Audi have it (like it's hard to tell the difference between front engine and mid engine car?). Bernd Rosemeyer led most of the race and won. Must have been fun to watch American Indy cars compete with European Grand Prix cars, how cool would a match up today be? I knew the kit would be a challenge. The kit is 100% handmade, no 3D printing, no photo-etch (other kits of his have p-e). Besides fitment issues, I replaced many kit parts with scratch-built units. It's not my best work, but race cars back then were crude anyway. It's also surprisingly heavy! The laced wire (not photo-etched) wheels are outstanding, they come finished, no painting required. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
