Weird Inter, 2 lights and dome. Maybe Bob has an idea?
« on: November 05, 2011, 10:49:24 PM »
Hello,

  Just came across this... They claim its an inter. However, I have never seen an Inter with 2 lights. http://cgi.ebay.fr/carte-a-jouer-INTER-MESSERSCHMITT-auto-microcars-ancien-/130357137235?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_71&hash=item1e59e40f53#ht_500wt_916

Why does it look so much like a Schmitt? Why does it say it was built in the Messerschmitt Factory? German? 200cc?

I dont know how they mixed up a Schmitt and an Inter. There is quite a difference. This does seem to be a professional card, since it has the Inter badge on it. Dumb creator!

I love that schmitt picture... Looks very weird, because its a drawing. Reminds me of our early car. I also love the 2 tone "shape". Doesnt even touch the wing, but goes on the front bumper ali.

Oh, and 2 schmitt prototypes I like:
(I love them all really, TG prototype is great aswell, but too similar to the produced model. These 2 are very obscure and unusual)

The KR 200 prototype has 175 wings, but seems to have no separate windscreen, just an all-in-one perspex lid. I think the card artist was confused, probably took one quick look at a picture then did it from memory, and also got confused between Inter and 'schmitt
Just remember: as one door closes behind you, another slams in your face

If you look closely on the 200 prototype pic, you can see bits of an ali frame. Since its an old [icture, technology wanst as advanced, and to make the dome look a bit transparent on the bacvkground must have been hard, so they went over the ali frame and woindow. It has a 200 door. Funny enough, I saw an original interior set that looks exactly like this one...
