Might have to get this one, part of my 'absolute favorite aircraft in 1/48' collection.

I second that!

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

I'm interested.

Special Hobby announced a 1/72nd Bugatti-De Monge 100P racer kit (SH72457) at Nuremberg last year, apologies if it's been mentioned before, but what's new is some CAD images aaaaaaand I need at least one of these, please:






If I'm honest I'm kinda concerned the spinner's shown as one part given it's a contraprop...

Indeed! Perhaps they based their artwork on the replica as a work-in-progress?

On the real deal, that gap between spinner sections is pretty noticeable too. Also, on the preserved example, the front spinner isn't pointed ... the tip is clipped off for a cooling opening.

Someone on Britmodeller suggested SH has used the replica - which literally crashed and burned five years ago - as the basis for this kit rather than the extant original, which makes very little sense to me.

OFFS it's a CAD render, it doesn't mean a damned thing. Renders are created from the engineering
model datasets and what the render shows is determined by which models you choose to show or
hide.
