This is pretty unusual - information direct to my In-Box from
German Domingo of Barcelona Universal Models,
and not yet common knowledge.
Actually, it might never be common!

Tropi,

Not usre - are those shots of the actual slot car models or just diecast to illustrate? I think BUM Slot is great compnay, just for the name!

Serious, they also make unique models.

BUM as in Barcelona Universal Models.

These models do look interesting and I suspect that they are sold out already!

I think Scalextric are due for another Bentley release. Its been over 10 years since the last one. Classic/vintage cars clearly are making a comeback.

Looking at the panel gaps, especially the mis-aligned door on the Cord, I suspect that they are die-casts. I can't speak to their current production, but about 4 years ago I bought a BUM Slot Wolf Dallera - not a bad body - mounted on absolutely the worst plastic chassis I have ever seen. Perhaps they have changed but I would regard their cars not as RTRs but as "starting points" for semi-scratch build.

Ten years since the Bentley was last released? Is it really that long?


This board is starting to make me feel really old. Stop it, you lot! When do they give out bus passes?


You sure, Moped? I know the Power & Glory releases were around 92/93 but surely the blue one was a couple of years later. Please make me feel young(er) again.

Mr.M

PS Bum Slot is the Spanish arm of Chad Valley. Or not.

Don't feel old!
These B U M cars are brand new to the slot market - fresh, breaking news.
So fresh that the vast majority have not been made and are certainly not sold out.

If and when Scalextric announce a re-release of the Bentley, (or anything else)
then that will be posted in its own news topic as soon as we hear of it.
NEWS is a little different from gossip, rumour and speculation and our intention
is to maintain that distinction as far as possible.
