Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Auto Union B Type Avus 1935 #3/4 Bernd Rosemeyer was apparently so keen to drive the Auto Union at Avus that he is said to have forced the teamís hand by painting his own name on the side of the cockpit! His debut in the car was short lived though as on the third lap of the first heat he suffered engine failure and a puncture. The sister car of Herman Prinz zu Leiningen fared no better, his engine letting go on the second tour of the second heat. The kit parts are well thought out with the main resin components cast by CMA to their usual very high standards and some fine etched and white metal ancillaries. If building the zu Leiningen car it will be necessary to fit and fill an insert on the nose air intake and to fill a couple of vents on the sides of the car, all of which is clearly illustrated in the instructions.
