    Rumour is spreading that the new and improved scaley ‘repop’ DArt Auto Union Type ‘C’ will debut. Spies saw the first pulls today and even a guest visitor they call ‘Luis’ was seen holding a silver briefcase leaving the salt mine… Weighing in at 10.8g this body will be competitive… can’t wait!!! Briefcase not included.

    Art. Congrats on the new release!

    Congrats to Luis for getting the first one!

    Faster than a speeding bullet... more powerful than a locomotive... able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Yes, these are some of Chuck Norris's warm-up exercises!

    Hi Art

    I’m sorry I won’t be ready for Mondays race but still hopeful for a future Coppa.

    I would like to start the registration process for my Maserati 8ctf. The car was absolutely crushed by the German Juggernaut in Grand Prix racing but starting in 1939 went on to be one of the  the winningest cars in Indy 500 history.  I love the challenges of researching and building so I’m going to start with this very rough resin body:

    Maserati 8ctf

    Won’t ever be beautiful but should be a great skill building exercise.

    Cheers

    Steve

    Wheel & transmission failures along with a broken suspension made for an exciting but unusual race… slow cars were fast and fast cars were slow… finally shaking up the results in the PGP class – no entries took to the grid for PGP+ a DArt resin crown gear not only finished another race but raced all the way to top spot… in a Ford – WTF? …Luis’ new Auto Union Type C wasn’t quite ready when the cars were called to the grid… and no pilots were injured or killed…

    I’ve edited the photographs and will post the results in a day or two… stay tuned… :yahoo:
