Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Bugatti T57 Aerolithe 1935 The ‘Elektron’ magnesium alloy bodywork on Bugatti’s lightweight ‘Aerolithe’ coupe couldn’t be welded due to its flammability and so was externally riveted instead, creating very distinctive spines which divided opinion somewhat but became a famous feature of this car and the Atlantics that followed. This is the second model of this striking machine that we’ve seen in recent months and those seams are particularly delicately done here. Slightly disappointing is the use of flat etch for some of the trim such as door hinges and handles, which should be raised and the etched side window frames aren’t really necessary. The general shape and panel engraving are good, with an excellent door line and the fine metallic paint finish matches photos well.
Very well finished resin hand built models with top quality paint finishes and much very fine and carefully applied photo-etched detailing. Also 1:43 & 1:18 resincast models made in association with Spark. Made in Italy/China.
