      I'm waiting to a clear sheet for completed the Bugatti...
      It's time for a new challenge!
      It will be of course another french car, the "Avions Voisin Record 1927".






      Unfortunately, the real car has been destroyed. My basis will be a re-builded one,
      with many genuine parts except the engine, the 8 cylinders has been replaced by a six cylinders.
      Take a look at:
      http://www.automobiles-voisin.fr/e_record_1927.html


      So, it will be a replica of... a replica!


      This time 100% scratch built!
      First steps, after lot of drawings:



















      And yes! No paint, no pain…

    Dan, great job! Can I ask what gauge of Aluminum you are using to fabricate the nose? Keep up the great work you are doing!

    Hi Ken and thanks!
    Glad to see you here. I use 0.3mm (0.0118") aluminum sheets, annealed of course...
    What about your E type? Not 1/1 Avions Voisin Record 1927 1/8 one, 1/8 scale one...

    All the best, Dan.

    Engine now for display and maybe some future project. We moved to Morro Bay, California and unfortunately had to sell my 1:1 Avions Voisin Record 1927 1/8 . No garage space, plus my back discs went down hill and it w as a struggle just to get in.
    Then as a result of my book, Model Expo commissioned me to design model kits for them and they have kept me busy ever since including ship models.
    I am in the early stages of researching and have purchased 4 Buick Nailhead 1/8 scale cars resin Avions Voisin Record 1927 1/8 engines to build Tommy Ivo’s Showboat. So far I am doing a great deal of prep work, clean up, and drilling and tapping of bolt holes. The challenge will be working off of photos for reference since plans do not exist. I also purchased 4 tires of the correct size and design, the internet is great for finding items.
    I may start a build log once I have enough to post.
