Hispano Suiza K6 - Bugatti Type 35 transporter

Post by andor88 »

This transporter was my Christmas gift. It had to be displayed with a bunch of T35-s. Not sure about it being a truck or commercial though:

I guess the only surviving picture of the real thing:

And a picture with the Bugatti painted in Hungarian colors, as it was property of prince Antal Eszterházy:

The models are produced by: Bugatti T35 - Eligor, Whitebox, Luxcar; Hispano Suiza K6 - ABC Brianza.

What a great Christmas gift ! I'd love one of those in my collection, but the only Bugatti's I have are the '37 and '39 Le Mans winners which I suspect would be too big for the transporter.

It would be indeed. It barely fits the type 35, which lacks the overhangs of the Tanks. Judging from the pictures, before committing to buy, I was expecting a little larger model. You could try with the T32 Tank, which is a short little thing, but that didn't race at Le Mans, so it's out of your subject.

Fantastic, beautiful - and a really extravagant "side step" in automobile history! Indeed, many model makers minimize commercial vehicles for avoiding too big models, and other makers enlarge the T35, as it would be too tiny in 1/43 :) . Perhaps you will try sometime a T35 made of white-metal from the classic makers (Auto Replicas, MCM etc.). I could imagine that they would fit better. But anyway, you have a good friend in Santa, as it seems :D

ABC can always be relied on to produce the unusual and this is no exception. Great add.

Superb!! It reminds me the Hispano Suiza classic buses and trucks. Modeltrans, a former Spanish model maker of classic trucks and buses made several HS buses and trucks references.
