Hardly a new build, but it is my entry. 1934 Bugatti T59, Nuvolari, Monaco. The next race (French) the Silver Arrows appeared....
The chassis had a few necessary mods. I was going to change the motor anyway, with a slower one now fitted. The plastic (non-complying) rear axle bushes were replaced by flanged ball races and the wire clips on the guide were shortened a little to bring them within the length of the car.

Hello again Max. The Auto Union arrived this morning. What can I say - its even better than it looks in the photographs, superb. I see you've used one of your very small rear brackets. The gear mesh is so smooth. I'll give the car a short run this afternoon to make sure its survived the journey in full working order.
Hi David, it looks like there are some good looking cars will be taking part, have you settled on a date for the first race yet ? its now down to the slot gods who will be saying "this one and not that one" and a list of guys saying " i should have done this and not that " good luck everyone. Mac P

Yes there are some nice looking cars and a fair amount of variety. There's quite a lot of ingenuity in construction and motors (in the GP class). The first race looks like being on Good Friday on my track at Rockwell Park. Andi Rowland is joining me and it was the first date we could both make.
