Bugatti Atlantic T57SC 1/12th scale Christian Gouel Model

Post by modelmaker on Sun 11 Mar 2012, 5:21 pm

Building this one for the Melbourne 2012 Vic Model Expo,doable with 5 weeks to get it finished.
I"ll document the build here with as many photos as I can.
Model is a curbside very limited run resin model, Resin,wood, Rubber ,photo/etch and Nickel plated white metal .
The real cars Body was built from magnesium and could not be welded so the cars body was designed in two halves including the front and rear fenders which were riverted together, hence the spine/comb on the body.
This entire spine has over 1000 riverts which have to be attached to the model individually ! I haven't started the process yet but I will be documenting the process when I get to it.

Geez Sean you like a challenge don't you. In time for Model Expo you say - I'm behind you 100% mate. This is the kind of model car that's needed to blow the socks off those military modellers (they don't believe a good model car build exists). This particular Bugatti is a favourite of mine - it looks so darn right in a bizarre way.

I confess to not having heard about this manufacturer but there are so many smaller guys doing this now, it doesn't surprise me. Are the wire wheels included? Pity there's no engine with it.

I am very keen to follow progress on this build so please keep us up to date with it. It may be a good story for ModelArt Australia magazine.

Thanks for sharing.

Wow!

I always wondered why they had that big flange down the middle.
Magnesium body eh. Smoking & driving could be a bit fraught then...
