      Hello,

      it is where I started my new project.
      I venture to my first complete scratchbuilt, it will definitely be a long term project.

      First I will show you again the "precursor" to this vehicle, the model of Le Zbre 1:86

      Le Zèbre Type A 1910, scale 1:5-lz0000-jpg

      A picture of the original, if I'm using this color is not fixed yet.

      Next is the crankcase, 1:5 what is already great, the engine is only about 4.7 inches high.

    A very interesting endeavor Marek, this is going to be fun to see progress. A very simple automobile yet just as Ken found with the buckboard, more complex then you can imagine at the onset. You should paint it red and call it speedy, LOL.

    Today the crankcase was on the plan.

    For this I just like the other part of this individual drums forming built then the two halves of the crankcase.
    I started in which I marked the holes on 6 plates and is concomitant with a 5 mm drill drilled.
    Furthermore, I have put 2 holes in the middle of the plates in order to prevent twisting behind pins by one.
    Then from residual material followed the spacers and the wheels were covered.

    Since I do not have a lathe, I screwed the drums on a mandrel and finished with my mini-drill and sandpaper.

    Now I was able to cut the sheath to the appropriate areas and put it all together once provisionally.

    Some motors have the crankcase stand by the name "ZEBRE" if I'll pose this letter with my noodles, I do not know.

    Good idea with the 'noodles'. We built 3 large scale model train carriages for a TV commercial a while back and because there were so many rivets on the panels, we used split lentils and then painted over. When the model was put in storage the mice ate all the rivets.

    Perfect start Egon. What a good idea with the noodles, thanks.

    Do you will use the parts you are making as a patern for future cast?

    Hello,

    Today I continue to face the crankcase. My first step was the reduction of the collar outside.

    Le Zèbre Type A 1910, scale 1:5-lz0034-jpg Le Zèbre Type A 1910, scale 1:5-lz0035-jpg

    Now I put a thin leaf between the two halves and glued the continuous tubes.
    Through the resulting gap I could after drying with a 0.2 mm saw cut apart the two halves.
    In this way, I am now certain that later pass when mounting the threaded rods and straight.

    Now I could finish the transition piece for the clutch, which had been as individually structured in layers as a cylinder.

    Now came the braces, here I have a curious and Recorded with 3 other plates in a bracket and filed.

    I have received 4 identical pursuit.

    Hello,

    the crankcase was as ready, now would be the side motor mount attached.
    Since these, but slightly obliquely downward and I made ​​the documents available to me this angle can not correctly identify
    I'm this problem from behind. The transmission has absolutely dare right supports to the frame so I can when this is done,
    determine the height and slope of the motor mounts.

    Now, to get to the gear I have to build in between the exposed clutch.

    Unfortunately I have just returned from this little part real footage

    I started again as I have transferred the dimensions from the drawing and transferred to a corresponding number of slices.
    I glued these discs and screwed onto a mandrel.

    Le Zèbre Type A 1910, scale 1:5-lz0043-jpg Le Zèbre Type A 1910, scale 1:5-lz0044-jpg

    According to this method I have been ready all parts of the clutch, now I have to make my only thought as I build this great spring.

    Le Zèbre Type A 1910, scale 1:5-lz0045-jpg

    Here is a picture where you can see the clutch begin to

    Hello,

    further we go ...

    Today I started with the transmission. The first two pictures.


    Le Zèbre Type A 1910, scale 1:5-lz0047-jpg Le Zèbre Type A 1910, scale 1:5-lz0048-jpg

    Then followed the usual steps; transfer degree mark cut, grind and glue.

    Now I have to align myself a subframe built to attach the brackets.

    Hi Marek,
    staying close to your build. Maybe I can help with your spring problem...even in autumn. Just tell me dimensions like diameter and length needed.
    Cheers
    Michael
