      It is not my intent to start this "New" project right away,(I have as of yet to put two Model A parts together) but in collecting references I noticed a detail I thought I should share.

      I do not know if this is unique or if it is a feature common to all the 8C engine blocks? -The hollow access on the underside of the motor mounts that extend to the chassis rails?

    I saw in the galerie some pictures with tubes to construct a honeycomb radiator. Is that from you? How will the bubes be attached together: glue, soft soldering?

    Hi Roger,

    The pictures you saw of the "honey-Comb" cells, are of the real thing. I found those pictures online, and thought that others might be interested.

    That type of radiator is typical of Bugatti and many others. The Alfa Romeo Monza has a square cell structure to its radiators, and someone would have to be almost as crazy as you to attempt replicating it!

    I did find some commercially made aluminum honeycomb that I will use when ever I start back up on the Type 53 Bugatti that I want to build. -It is not perfect but when seen as a component of a complete model, I do not think it will appear out of place.

    -Don

    PS, How crazy have the people on the Continental Forum gone? regarding your latest posted photos? I think we should add a new award here on our forum, for Model of the Year, Years? Decade? Your work is the BEST!

    Thanks for the explanation about the radiator! I was thinking it was a model…
    The reaction at the Continental forum are rather timid because only those who pay the small amount over $12 per year can see the subject. I had much more reactions when all categories were free to all.
    It's different in the AACA forum where I have now about 380'000 views. There are usually many comments when I publish something new.
