Beautiful work Dan! Is this considered an underslung chassis, just curious? 

A chassis where the elements are suspended below the axles. Such as this. :smartass:

Dan it's a great joy to watch your model come to shape. 

 

I think you mentioned it somewhere in your Talbot-Lago thread, but what kind of wood do you like to use for these purposes?

Merry Christmas ladies and gentlemen!

 

To Roy, in the real life ash tree is used. Here, plywood! And no wood on the Talbot, it's for the Bugatti,

were I used oak and red wood, sorry...

 

First today, steering gearbox:

Come back now to the engine. Do you remember, exhausts pipes are ready, lets go!

It's easier with a jig:

Happy New Year ladies & gentlemen!

And thanks guys for your kind words, always much appreciated...

 

Today, around the radiator. Of course, nobody will see them in a few... month (!), but

it's there and I know that!

Thanks to these glorious photos, WE know also, to our great satisfaction. Documenting work such as this is vital as an extension of the accomplishment.

I see my Rolls daily in its case but frequently go into my photo records to enjoy what is now unseen and inaccessible. Brings back the joy immediately.

I often think, ' I did that???"

And sometimes, "Can I now do that again"... With a doubt, of course!

We are always_ fortunately_ in the doubt, and it's to my eyes a good thing.

 

Well, today plumbing, the real car:

You can see some work is needed on this side!

And on the top, the beginning of the head cover. Note it's a valveless engine, a Knight patent.

Dan;

Do you have a diagram or photo to explain a 'valve-less engine'? Pardon my ignorance.
