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      with many genuine parts except the engine, the 8 cylinders has been replaced by a six cylinders.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

    Thanks gentlemen!
    I'm going to give you my trick for the axle, but be careful it's just between us...



    But I don't know the metal, not steel at all!

    Hello Dan,

    I was so distracted by your axle, that I forgot to ask, "How big are these tyres?" -in a few of your pictures I see a fixture block, or what we call a ONE-TWO-THREE block, (One inch by Two by Three), and I do not know what the metric equivalent is? 25mm x 50mm x 75mm? So? I'm guessing that the diameter of your tyres is around 225mm or almost 9 inches?

    If they are that big? could you stand one next to your Bugatti for a reference?

    Thank you for sharing! (Your solution for the front axles was inspired!)

    Hi Don and thanks for your kind words.

    About the tyres. It's a BUGATTI tyre shown! About 100mm diameter.
    But the rim is bigger than a Bug one, about 75mm diameter... It's the trap!

    Dan.

    Thanks Marcus!

    It's logical, after front axle, rear one...






    With a new technique... Wood! Why not?
    No more brass in my workshop! Let's go:










    Of course, some brass is sometimes required...




    Aluminum too:







    And an old tool, used for the Talbot...

    Hello Dan!

    Looking very nice! You are making progress!
    So you will only work in wood, brass, aluminum, steel, mystery metal, and plastic, but nothing else?

    Your brake cover looks very nice, was the stock of metal a soda can or did you have a sheet handy? I am wondering what the thickness is? Nice crisp definition.

    Thank you for sharing! -Don

    Thanks Don!

    It's really a multi media WIP Avions Voisin Record 1927 1/8 ... But wood is the first time .
    Aluminum sheet (0.3mm, annealed) was bought.

    Thanks Dominique for your kind words!"End justifies the means" works too perhaps? Painted pieces can be done in every material...Dan.

    Hello Dan,

    Your posts are always full of useful techniques and I have set my own Voisin aside for now, but the same brake back plates will need to be made, and I was considering several ways to accomplish that. -I have even considered making the tire, wheel disc, and back plate as one piece with grooves incised to indicate the edges of each.

    A craftsman never has to justify anything, the work, the results speak for themselves. -and post after post you show yourself to be a craftsman as well as a gentleman.

    Again, thank you! for all that you show and share!

    ...

    Exactly!

    Now, regarding this backplate: am I correct that you use the machined part as a template and that the annealed aluminium is just pressed upon the shape of the part? Or is it something else?
    Best regards,
    Dominique.
