      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...

    The beautifully formed ones?

    Are they all the same? I’ve been looking at several restorations and notice that the bracket attaching the shocks/dampener varying, and being hand forged (in part) some variation is to be expected.

    Thanks
    Sorry MODEL A MODEL, I haven't the answer for this question !

But, as we have seen here, the platform can be taken to Museum quality by a sharp eye and attention to detail. Oh yea, machine work helps of which I am afraid, in my years of modeling. I never took too. The skill demonstrated here in this build goes to show what one can do if willing to give it a try. I look forward to more of this master piece coming together.

    Thank you so much, Rick

    This build is always in stand by, and probably, I'll have not time to put in back on the bench before 2021.
    I encounter actually many difficulties in my professional job, but...I'll be retired in ten months...so

    I understand what you are saying about time. To tell the truth, I retired a couple years ago and still have little time for modeling. My current project, Pocher RR Phantom has only progressed to the frame assembly and a few odds and ends. Seems like I have less time now than I did when I worked! But with that said, retirement is not being moth balled. You will I am sure enjoy the retirement life as I do. The 1st year was abit odd, but now, I am a happy camper.
    Thanks for the reply.

    When all else fails, read the instructions.

    From now, 10 months is a long time, but suddenly it's over!
