Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Theo Schneider Le Mans 1926 #26 Kit available GCAM43062 Prior to WW1, Theo Schneiderís company had competed in a number of Grands Prix, but in the 1920s their attention was on production based sports cars so this pair of two-litre machines made their race debut at Le Mans in 1926 where the #27 car finished a fine sixth overall. The regulations of the time said that cars must run a certain number of laps with the roof raised and the models reflect this, with the #26 machine in open form and the #27 weatherproofed. These are simple models but the wire wheels are fine, the windscreen frame is etched and there are also etched parts for the radiator stone guard and temperature gauge. Strips of very thin balsa wood replicate the treads on the running board and the general finish is Ďauthenticí.
