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      with many genuine parts except the engine, the 8 cylinders has been replaced by a six cylinders.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

    Egon, I may be wrong (would not be the first time!), but I think the battery dimensions are correct. However, the floor on which they are laying is higher than on the original vehicle.
    It's maybe what you wanted to say.

    Could be Roger, they look very high up, it not a mistake Dan would make after he messured the whole car, it's not like him.

    Be cool guys! You are right both...
    It's a real mistake, batteries size are correct but the floor of them is too hight.
    I saw that but once the body on the frame, this angle of view is impossible! And of course, I'm lazy.
    But Egon was there...
    Thanks for your remarks.


    Today, rear body frame is coming:



    Dry fit





    When naval modeling join car modeling...



    Settings for the following, always!



    Enjoy your WE,

    Dan.

    It's will not be a problem, it seems that there will be enough space. On a real car, the lower location of the batteries can change (not a lot!) the center of gravity.

    Ladies and gentlemen, another small update...



    The first rear side panel, dry fit:











    Alone, because I'm waiting for 1mm head rivets from ModelMotorcars, but it's my fault!







    Anyway, I have to work on the rear bonnet, this one:







    Enjoy your WE!

    Thanks for the precision! 0.3 is not very thick, especially for aluminum and 1/8 scale. When I think I used 0.4mm thick brass for my 1:12 model! It may that I have an obsession with strength!
    What do you mean by "sandy by airbrush Avions Voisin Record 1927 1/8 "? are you sandblasting the body parts?

    Roger I do love strength too... Some parts will come in 0,4 mm as the rear bonnet!
    And yes, I sandblasting every aluminum parts. My english you know...

    So, as expected, rear bonnet.
    It was not a walk...
    But:



    It Works!



    The mechanism:






    Soldering in situ:




    To prevent that, really awful, another "mechanism":



    To obtain that:



    As done on my Bugatti, simple but efficient:

    Hinges are always a delicate matter. When done correctly, a pleasure to open or close the corresponding panel!
    A spring at the right place can do wonder!

    Well, rear side is _almost_ OK. Some settings on the trunk are needed...



























    Trunk enclosure. You can't see anything? Of course, it's made to!











    To open it, a small screwdriver...







    As you have seen, on the rear top, flat head rivets, and the rivets must fit flush with the surface.

    With rond head rivets I have to made flat head rivets too. Tedious, thanks Mr Dremel!*

    I have to stamp before... My tool:







    Parts before mounting:







    That's all folks!

    Thanks for watching...



    Dan.
