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      with many genuine parts except the engine, the 8 cylinders has been replaced by a six cylinders.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

    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...

    Thank you Markus, much appreciated!



    Today, last dry fit of the central body. All is OK now. But I have to work on the cockpit area... before closing!

    You can admit it will be easier.*















    The other side.*As you can see, the edges have been doubled







    New leather bands, less thick







    Last rear pieces are coming...







    Future joint of the bonnet, also...







    Thanks for watching, Dan.*

    Well, do you remember, cockpit area?
    Of course a steering wheel inside...





    I know, the rope is too white...



    How to? Lathe, milling machine, and lathe again and jeweler saw too...



    And the rope, what a game!

    Thanks Roger and Markus!

    Yes Roger, CA glue Avions Voisin Record 1927 1/8 is perfect for that...

    Today, cockpit area again and for a long time...
    The dashboard is to my eyes a pure beauty:



    Let's go!





    Annealed aluminum (0.3mm) is my friend!



    Another friend, brass to soldering...
    This piece will be painted.



    In situ, not so bad...

    Thanks Codger, Wind deflector made sense...

    Something is missing? I suppose...







    Wind deflector in situ too:

    Today, pontoons:

















    No secret, a good paper template is always a good thing!*
    And a bit of pleasure, the same template works on each side! What a good surprise...

    Well, today noses stories.*

    First the big one:











    Still removable...







    And the second nose!

    Some work is needed, is not it?







    Not really easy, but with a lot of hammer blow and a lot of sweat too...











    Have a fine WE!

    Hi Don and thanks!

    Few of pieces are glued... If so I use CA glue Avions Voisin Record 1927 1/8 , never epoxy Avions Voisin Record 1927 1/8 . And once glued to maintain them, all are always screwed or bolted after!
    I don't trust any glue.
