Hi, I've started researching the following cars with a view to attempt to scratch build them, does anyone have any pictures / plans of the two cars listed below I could use to attempt to make my own scratch built bodies:

Bentley Embiricos Le mans 1949


Adler Trumpf Le mans 1937/38


Any help with wheelbase and track dimensions would be very helpful


I'll keep you posted of my progress.

MAF, I have plans and photos of both of those cars. This is the first time I've used this forum so I am uncertain about how it works. Can we private message each other? Glad to send you infomation. ettore

Hi Alan,

For these I've decided to make everything myself as to my knowledge nothing in 1/32 scale exists for these. I'm currently modelling the body of the Bentley from scratch which I'll then make a mould and resin cast (waiting for the first mould to set-up as I type). I'm taking photo's of the progress as I go along and will post what I've been up to soon.

The biggest problem on these cars is the lack of scale info, especially the Adler. I managed to find some good and accurate info on the Bentley, its big, with a wheel base of 126" and track of 56" which equates to 100mm and 44.5mm respectively in 1/32.

Best regards,
Marlon.

Very frustrated here! My computer refuses to show the pictures you chaps have posted, and it sounds a great project. I'd love to see more.
Good whittling, MAF!
