Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Auto Union P Wagen Avus 1934 Hand built available GBM014M The release of the hand built version of this subject was some months ago and experience of assembling those first builts led to their creator, Stuart Delf, to modify the parts so that they would be more builder friendly in kit form. The P-Wagen was the forerunner of the Auto Union Grand Prix machines, Ferdinand Porsche having designed it on spec having parted company with former employers Steyr. Early runs with the car concentrated on high speed tests and in March 1934 set new world records for 1 hour, 2 hours and 100 miles on the banked Avus circuit in Berlin, all at approximately 134 mph average. Details of those records are included in the instructions which are largely written but include close up photographs of the potentially trickier parts of the build. The parts are all very cleanly cast, the extremely fine wire wheels are pre-assembled for you and there is a small amount of etch for the final touches.
