  1. Ooooh Yeah! She has her own flight bag with the head set, flight suit, cap, 500 000 map... She wants to be astronaut or test pilot! Yep! This is the PT-13 I work on In the hangar. another from La Ferté Alais at home LFCD The Lockheed Electra And a picture my friends in the T-6 I took from a Falco flying to a meeting New kits/Wips launched: 1971 and 1985...

  2. Hi, Thank you very much Mates! Thank you once again for your patience and for all your nice comments. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the building of that old beastly beauty. I'm still hesitating and wondering who will be next... In the meantime, I spend some time on a Ferrari 156/85 built many years ago which is now... completely unbuilt and stripped. I made a cozy nest for the Bugatti. Ready to travel with her sisters for the next exhibition with my friends
  3. Good evening, Thank you very much Mates! Well, the buckles, the straps, the exhaust ... In short, what remained to be done is done! The numbers and letters of the registration have been cut individually for a better rendering without any apparent carrier film. Basically, the Belle de Molsheim is finished. Maybe I'll spray a little dark smoky in some places ... and take more photos tomorrow. Pascal #We Are Aviation
  4. Good evening, Thank you guys! The decals are applied but still require a little work. I took over and repositioned the steering bar, the steering wheel, the windshield and the mirror are also now in their place. The wheel tightening nuts are masked and burnished. I drilled a 1.2 hole in the back and installed a 1mm neodymium magnet that attracts the nut to the wheel bolt; the wheels can thus be removed for transport. Demain, les sangles et leurs boucles, la grille de protection du radiateur et le haut du bouchon ainsi que la m
  5. Hi, Awesome wheels Ron! Bead locks were introduced after Jochen Rindt fatal accident due to a tire problem. The Ferrari and around the T-serie era, High pressure fittings and hoses were from Superflexit. It was different than the well known military A/N fittings. Robert Bentley, from RBmotion, makes beautiful machined and anodized Ferrari fittings Pascal
  6. Hi, Thanks a lot Mates! End soon ... The hull is attached to the frame. The rivets are installed, then "stitching" is done. I braided some cable to replace the provided photo-cut for ... brake cables. But we have to review the assembly. The levers, gear and brakes, are also put in place, as well as the steering column and the steering wheel. I cut the steering bar and replaced it with a steel one of the same diameter. Next step: decals. Pascal
  7. Hi, Beautiful as usual Ron! ... and fully agree with you regarding the PE parts! Pascal
  8. Hi all, Thanks a lot Ron! The Bugatti progresses and gently approaches the garage. The radiator is now attached to the frame and connected to the engine, as are the exhausts. The front part of the body is also installed and the two parts of the hood are assembled. The steering wheel is painted and provisionally mounted. The windshield is finished. I did not use the leather provided in the kit and preferred a thin lead sheet, all fixed to the body with brass rivets.
  9. ´Morning Mates, Thank you Ron! I met a small assembly problem: I am missing 1mm for a correct junction between the manifolds and the exhaust pipes ... I had to make a mistake. I turned two extensions in a scrap of white metal, soldered them, filed and polished them, then inserted a copper rod before treating them with the burnisher. The plumbing of the passenger compartment is complete, the fuel tank pressurizing pump installed and equipped with its handle. The seat is painted with oils, a
  10. Good evening, Thank you Mates! No, the biscuit was from Anyz Great parts for a/c and for cars too! You might have an eye to their website. Pascal
  11. Good evening, Thank you very much Mates! Still progressing. Added some details on the engine and its bulkhead, as well as the cockpit side with a little plumbing. The flat bottom and the lower parts of the hull are now assembled, as well as the central part. This set is already starting to weigh a bit... Gifts day. Pascal
  12. Good evening, Thank you very much Mates! The Bugatti has just taken an important step with the painting of the main body parts: Masking, primer, paint and varnish. The gloss of the varnish is deliberately moderate. I then looked at the dashboard and the firewall, here they are almost finished. Windows have been added to the dials. Pascal
  13. Good evening, Thank you! In a playful mood, (and completely under the spell of these little gems !!) I decided to use castle nuts like on the Tipo 500. The front suspension is complete and, like the rear, composed of blades to be assembled one by one and to be crimped. The assembly of the components of the front axle is extremely precise: a treat! Woilà woilà. Pascal
  14. Good evening, Thank you. Well, otherwise it is progressing. Slowly due to the parts to be prepared, painted, and masking to protect the parts treated by oxidation. The ignition is done and set up; I didn’t forget to paint the spark plugs porcelain in white. The clutch assembled, painted and coupled to the engine The front axle is partially assembled, but without the leaf springs for the moment. The radiator is almost finished: It's a BUGATTI! I placed a foam insert inside, painted black with goua
  15. Good evening, Thank you very much ones again Mates! The build continues quietly. The chassis parts are varnished, then assembled. Engine assembly for test fit. Suspension and rear drivetrain are done and in place. The shaft is chemically burnished after being polished. The blades must be assembled one by one and care must be taken in their alignment. The two halves of the tank are welded, sanded and then polished. The sides are added and the whole is treated with oils. Okay, that's cool, but everythi
