WIP 3 - 1/10 1929 Bugatti Type 46 . 3rd progress report for the construction of the 1/10 1929 Bugatti.
Today; the interior and rear end of the car have been done. .
more WIP photos, but not enough to make another page. It currently looks like this, with very few, but needed, parts missing; mainly for the bonnet (that means 'hood' for you americans out there). I like the way the wings have come out :)
Wow, a lot more done already (='no school today' lol) ...
Just to say, like the time I posted two build diaries for the 1/3 lambo within a day of each other; I think that after this one you'll have a little wait before the final post, as for the rest I'll need to get a bunch of parts as I don't everything I need to finish it at the moment.
Today, I've been working on all of the rear end of the car, as well as the interior (basically, everything rear of what I did yesterday).
As you can see in the photos, I tried to add pedals, gear lever, steering wheel (slightly changed from the initial position made yesterday), and a couple of dials on the dash; wooden parts on the passenger side of the dashboard.
The seats were made from log bricks, to give the look of stitched leather; and most of the front seats are made from the walls of Fort Legoredo (lol... who'd have guessed they'd have such an alternative use?)
Afterwards, I carried on the curve of the roof down the back, doing my best to make the small curved split rear windscreen (which isn't too accurate, but that's the limitation of using lego... the split is supposed to be quite small, but I couldn't se a better way of doing it)
I also made an opening boot; and copied the best I could the rear bumper (which dosesn't actually look very effective... but hey, this car's from the 20's...)
The car's really starting to take shape nicely, I think; and all that's left to do are the wheel arches/wings , the bonnet (I know exactly how I'm going to make the bonnet, I just need to get some certain parts to do so), then do the final touches (i.e. replacing the temporary parts buy the final ones when I get them, and getting another two wheels, it looks a bit silly at the moment with two different types lol...)
Hope you like it !
P.S. If you are looking to buy lego for your creations, I would like to recommend the following Bricklink lego shop ; "About Town, Castle & Train" ( http://www.bricklink.com/store.asp?p=stacey_love )
I personally know the shopholders, and they are very nice, devoted people. They are currently sponsoring 100% of my 1/3 Lamborghini project, providing all of the parts; and have made various other donations to other models I have made.
The store has a wide selection of parts (over 600,000!), at good prices, and offer an exceptional, fast service (no tax or dodgy exchange rates, next day postage, etc). you won't be disappointed !
