Hey Jurgen,
I just missed out a polistil lotus 80 the other day (I was at work and missed the bid!) and was going to do the same as you. I don't suppose you could tell me if you could cast another one at all for me?

I believe there where several 1/32nd polistil diecast F1s out around the same time. I remember they did a Ligier JS5-the low airbox one-and a Tyrrell P34 amongst others. If anyone is casting from them I need to know!

Just saw the lotus 80 in action today at the historic F1 races in Zandvoort.
Love the car and am looking for one.

Hi guys
Right now I have no time or inclination to work on slot cars, for
my mother died suddenly and unexpectedly.
Employ me at the moment, therefore, other problems dissolve the apartment and other work
It will go in any case continue.
I hope I wrote it understandable, my english is not so good

regards

Jürgen B

Jurgen

I'm so sorry to hear the news.

My mother passed away on Christmas Eve 2011 after living with Multiple Sclerosis for 20+ years.

I miss her every day and think of her every day.

Losing your mother is so very painful but trust me when I say that each day becomes a little easier and the happy memories remain.

Best wishes.
