Avions Voisin Record 1927 1/8


Recommended Posts

I quote you: "Devil is in details..." (Unknown)

This sentence is from Nietzsche ("Der Teufel steckt im Detail")

 

Details: some micro bolts, hexagonal finishing of leave springs fixations ?

I really like the progress seen in the last posts, as always with Mr Propeller's works. Again a unique masterpiece-to-be for the display case. 

 

Great colour blue, too!

Thanks Roy!

 

About the blue_ same color (glacier blue, RAL 5024) used on the chassis of the Talbot, why?_ unfortunately the flash give a too strong blue...

In fact, it's in reality very close to the original one:

Another enigma, for me...

 

Thanks for looking!

Well, today rims, spokes and so one...

 

First, rims. PVC fitting for plumbers!

Some holes required. Only 624 in total.

Big holes? Yes, you will understand in a future post.

Small ones too:

And of course, a jig!

Thank you very much gentlemen!

To Harvey, this sort of direct dividing head is very useful for scratch building...

And very easy to use.

Sometimes you can find it on Ebay, around €100.

You are welcome Harvey!

 

While waiting for 0,7mm brass rods (Spokes), some tiny pieces for the brakes...

The goal:

Thanks sharknose...

 

Welcome in the nightmare!

And now, you can understand the reason why of big holes in the rims. Another mix P/P*...

The last row is coming. Only 4 or 5 hours per wheel...
