      Hello

      As I said in my introduction on this forum, 26 years have passed since I've begun the assembly of this precious and rare model, and 24 since I abandonned it on the shelf, gathering dust and rust.
      Recently, I woke up, and decided to re-start it, and, if possible, achieve it.
      I disassembled entirely the model and began this resurrection !


      Actually, "she" is in this state:
      - Chassis with frame rails, brakes, fuel tank, rear and front axle assembled
      - engine with many extra details ( according to the reference photos of Paul Koo's DVD and other found on the net, particularly on gallery section of Tthis website), mounted on the chassis with B002 Engine mount of MCM (Thanks Marvin )
      - Steering box installed with personal and extra detailing.
      - Engine mounted on the frame.
      - Extra detailed firewall achieved and mounted
      - Radiator with some improvements mounted too

      I've added or am going to doit, numerous parts or advanced features as:
      - Speedometer cable
      - Tachometer cable
      - Functional linkage of accelerator Pocher Bugatti type 50 Coupé de Ville: à résurrection.
      working on carburetors and supercharger
      And many others...


      As much as possible, I used bolts instead of screws, and, where not, I painted the screws in black, to hide them.
      The chassis was painted with automotive black primer Pocher Bugatti type 50 Coupé de Ville: à résurrection. , which gave it a softly grained aspect.
      For all the engine parts, I used Alclad Pocher Bugatti type 50 Coupé de Ville: à résurrection. metal paints with my airbrush Pocher Bugatti type 50 Coupé de Ville: à résurrection. , and here and there, tamiya Pocher Bugatti type 50 Coupé de Ville: à résurrection. paints with a soft or a dry brush.
      Many details are scratched with aluminium sheet (0.3 mm thickness), Styrène sheet and rods, brass or copper or alu tubes and rods (from 0.3 mm to 2 mm) , micro bolts and threaded rod, micro washers, destroyed watch parts or photo-etched parts(engine cam covers, photo-etched grill for the radiator), thanks to Ebay
      Several parts have been modified when necessary, especially to make them closer to the real ones.


      And now, some overviews of the model, in its actual state....more detailed photos of the step by step building to go later if anybody is interested


















      Ps: I didn't found the way to put an explicit picture of my building before the title of the thread.. So, if anyone could help me...

    A lathe and a milling machine are the basic tools for serious modeling.

    Thanks a lot, MODEL A MODEL, PROPELLER, Roger and Ritual19

    As told me Propeller, I'd forgotten to drill the center hole on the outer side of the cylindrical part of my steering arm

    This omission just achieve to be corrected:



    I'll continue later my milling and drilling job on this steering arm and the linkage that connects to it.

    I'm not very productive actually, my few free time being monopolized by the logistics of my older son's wedding planning

    Little progress today though.

    The conical arm has been sanded and polished (It remained ugly marks of a very bad turning work). Now it's better and acceptable, if not satisfactory.

    This arm has been secured on the cylindrical bolted part, using silver soldering.

    The cylindrical part which sleeves on the steering shaft has been drilled 0.8 mm, then threaded M1 at its top. And through this hole, a 4 mm M1 bolt will take place and could be tighten on the shaft to secure the connection with the steering arm.

    At the bottom of the arm, in the "nut", an identical hole has been drilled and threaded and a 8 mm M1 threaded rod has been screwed and the soldered.
    This operation has created an axle which will allow to connect the horizontal linkage moving the wheels.









    Regarding this linkage, i'm going to scratchbuild a new one with brass rods and my lathe.

    The parts provided by Pocher are unrealistic, too thick and too short, and the real linkage is not horizontal but contains two sections: the rear one, which climb, and the front one, which is horizontal.

    That's all as for now

    Well...as told me Don: "Slow and steady wins the race".

    So, slowly, but surely, I continue the scratch building of my steering linkage.

    The Pocher parts of the linkage, compared with my reference photos, seem too thick:
    - 4 mm for the connector (with the steering arm)
    - 3 mm for the horizontal linkage wich join forward the connector on the right front wheel.

    So, according tho what I see on all my ref. photos, I've arbitrarily decided that:
    - the connectors will be 3.0 mm
    - the horizontal linkage will be 2.5 mm

    First, I'd have to learn to master lathe turning techniques with different tools, in order to have an accurate usage, and get a smooth surface finish...

    After several tries, I undertook to turn the first connector:

    - Starting form a 4.12 mm gauge brass rod, 25 mm lenght
    - Drilled it on the lathe 1.5 mm gauge over 5 mm
    - Reduced the thickness to 3.00 mm over 10 mm
    - And then, reduced diameter on the following 0.3 mm, to 3.5 mm
    - Next, reduced diameter to 3 mm on the following 0.6 mm
    - And last but not least, reduced diameter to 0.6 mm on the following 0.6 mm

    Later, I put the part in the dividing head of my miiling machine, placed vertically on the crossing table, in order to drill on it a 1 mm hole
    perpendicularly.

    And I got this part:





    Compared with the Pocher's one:



    This connector near the steering arm:



    Both with a M1 brass bolt:



    All parts connected:







    Put in place on the chassis:



    It remains to scratch built Pocher Bugatti type 50 Coupé de Ville: à résurrection. the front connector, using the same methods and measures, and the horizontal linkage.

    Later, all this stuff will be nickel plated Pocher Bugatti type 50 Coupé de Ville: à résurrection.

    Stay tuned il you like, and thank you for watching.
