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      with many genuine parts except the engine, the 8 cylinders has been replaced by a six cylinders.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

    Well, today, as expected, carburetors and some linkages...











    Accurate, of course, as usual about 40%!


    Some tiny pieces:








    Lot of work outside the mode, easier...

    Thank you very much Markus!

    Well, today fuel line and filters.
    With that, we can consider the engine bay completed!














    But before aluminum forming, I have to correct the rear brakes mechanism. Fortunately, all is
    removable...
    Tomorrow will be another day.


    Thanks for watching, Dan.

    Thanks Roger, much appreciated!

    Well, today as expected rear brakes. Remember, no front brakes...


    But before, rear side floor, and the first aluminum pieces of the patchwork.





    Who said removable?





    First body pieces, why? You will understand later. Choice of sequences are very important...








    The reason why:

    Between you and Jo, Thierry and Marcus, and Roger, and several others on this forum; quite an education! Making a model from scratch is really an exercise in problem solving. Make the problem smaller, make it solvable, and bit by bit, you've made something special!

    Thank you for posting your works, you make it look simple. (I know that sometimes it isn't)

    Great work, but I think your batteries are a bit to high in relation to the original, sorry.
