      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      with many genuine parts except the engine, the 8 cylinders has been replaced by a six cylinders.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.

    The goal, note the size of the rear axle! (Photo ADT Tours, France)




















    Who said a lathe is needed?

    After the first paint coat the chassis is drying. It's now time to deal with the front axle and
    his reinforcements...



    On the background, the deal:













    Of course, some machining, as usual!

    Thanks Dan. I`m still working on the car but i have little time and all i`m doing this time requires good preparation (door cut-outs ....) and needs thorough research. To make useable photos will take time. Please be patient with me. Markus
