Here's a review by Jean-Luc Formery of the Planet Models 1/48 scale Bugatti 100P kit. Quite an interesting subject for those who like vintage racers of the late 1930'.

Hi Jean-Luc

Nice review! Thanks for the really helpful list of references. Of course, the more you learn, the more you realise how much there is to discover! There I was, naively buying a pot of Humbrol "French Blue" for my kit, but one of your links states the dark blue usually depicted is suspected just to have been a primer coat, ready for a "Bugatti Blue" top-coat - and that colour seems to have evolved over the years: http://www.type35.co.uk/forum.htm.

All the best
