Bugatti Airplane Book
The Bugatti 100P Record Plane
The History of one airplane and the two men who created it.
by Jaap Horst

The development of this extremely advanced airplane with many novel features was started in 1937, for which Ettore Bugatti had hired the Belgian Louis de Monge as chief engineer. The first version of the airplane was planned as a speed-record airplane, a military version was to follow later. Tragically the Bugatti 100P airplane never flew, the Germans invaded Paris where it was being built before it was 100% ready. The airplane surprisingly survived the war, and still exists in the EAA museum in Oshkosh, USA. Both engines exist, and were built into Bugatti race-cars. Currently a flying replica is being constructed in the USA, built in such a way, that it will be aerodynamically the same as the original.


This book for the first time describes the complete history of this wonderfully beautiful streamlined airplane, as well as all of it's novel systems. Also, the histories of both the plane's creators are followed, from the early years of aviation.

Kitson Wingman Peterson
'Wingman' by Andrew Kitson
A Limited Edition of 500 Artist Signed and Numbered Prints
60cm x 44cm Overall Size
$80.00 Reserve HERE for December Delivery!

Ronnie Peterson shadows team leader Mario Andretti in their dominant 'Black Beauty' Lotus 79s. Andretti won the race for John Player Team Lotus in chassis 79/4 with Peterson just 0.3 seconds adrift at the flag in 79/2; an emphatic victory and the last 1-2 for Team Lotus. Ronnie was a loyal team mate, dutifully supporting number one driver Mario to his World Championship title and helping to secure the Constructors' title with his runner-up spot. The popular Swedish driver won two 1978 Grands Prix to Andretti's six and this race proved to be Andretti's last F1 victory. Tragically it was Peterson's last finish, as disaster struck at the start of the next race, at Monza. The original painting was commissioned by Clive Chapman, Classic Team Lotus and measured 5 feet wide!

Latest word on this piece is that they are due to arrive in the US by the second week of December. We're keeping our fingers crossed. I still have a handful of pieces from this Limited Edition of 500 that are not spoken for. To order, click here.
On a related subject, there's no word from Minichamps on the release date for their recently offered 1976 World Champion James Hunt McLaren M23s in 1/18 and 1/43 scale. I don't expect Christmas delivery, but we are taking orders for when they get around to producing them.
2013 LeMans and Formula 1 DVD Reviews
Kultur, the licensee of these two popular DVD reviews for many years, has decided to close their motorsports division. If no one steps in to replace them, we will offer European PAL format versions of these titles after the first of the year. We will update you as time goes on. If you have any questions, drop me an note.
Copies of Rainer Schlegelmilch's 'Sportscar Racing 1962-1973' and additional stocks of the 1/18 scale Schuco Cooper T51 of Sir Jack Brabham are expected to arrive any day. Only a couple pieces of each are not spoken for at this time. Click on the links to order.
