    @Roy vd M., for lubrication, I think you should try White Spirit. I've seen, I do not remember exactly where, a Youtube video, of engine turning 1:1 scale on aluminium, and the guy used such a thinner to lubricate his job and avoid the clogging of his "swirling-tool"

    Thanks for my Birthday, Olivier
  7. Thanks for this nice comment, Olivier OK, I'll take overall pictures of my Bug' as soon as possible and publish them on the thread. You can visit "my" page on the "features exhibit gallery" on ModelMotorcars.com : https://www.modelmotorcars.com/1932-bugatti-type-50t/ But, I have to warn you: the pictures are absolutely out of date since several months, regarding the numerous enhancements i've done on this model and my skills development ... You'll have to compare with the pictures posted in my thread day after day.

  12. HI chaps.... I just come back from my holidays in North America, 2 weeks in Canada and a fews days in USA, Boston, MA...(A very nice place) As someone know, I've just finished my "second model", I mean we have married my younger son on september 9th, with a Canadian young lady... Am very proud of them ! I cannot resist the pleasure to share with you some pictures of them, before returning to work (my official one, and my hobbies, particularly my Bugatti's build)
