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      with many genuine parts except the engine, the 8 cylinders has been replaced by a six cylinders.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

    Nice parts, I do like them!
    Something bother me at your trunk lid: it seems that the pivoting point is not optimal; on the pictures, we have the impression that the lid is touching the body in the open position. Optical illusion or incorrect pivoting point? Maybe it's exactly like that on the real car; you may tell more about it.
    It could be that the front edge of the lid is too much forward anyway, it should not be in a straight line, but have a curve to clear the body when open.
    On the other side, the purpose from this vehicle is far away from a car sold to the public; some glitches had no importance for the people at Avions Voisin at that time.

    Thanks Roger, and you are right! Incorrect pivoting point.
    I was talking about settings...

    Well, today, first step on the rest of the body.
    And you will understand why I almost had to finish the rear side...

    Of course a template is needed:



    Many work still to do, but it's not so bad!





    And the reason why...
