Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Bugatti T38 Tourer 1927 Ch. #38195 Hand built available ABC338 With open four-seater tourer coachwork by Compton of Hillingdon, this was the first of the Type 38 Bugattis to be exported to Australia, supplied via the London agent to a Queensland doctor. Early period photos show the car with light coloured bodywork and dark wings, but over the years it fell into disrepair and was sold at auction in 2010 as a ‘barn find’ (basket case would be a more accurate description!). The car has subsequently been rebuilt and the model depicts it in restored form. The resin body parts in the kit are very clean with just small amounts of flash and feed tags to remove. The white metal inner door panels will need a little attention but the remaining metal parts are pretty good and the etch is, as usual, excellent. The finished model is one of the best that we’ve seen from ABC for a while with excellent paint and very carefully fitted fine details. The resin soft top roof looks particularly realistic and in the rear cabin area the floor covering is a most ornate design, included as a decal in the kit.
