Dear friends.

After prolonged period of abusing Mick Sutton's hospitality on his thread I have decided to post some pictures of the progress with my Bugatti Bebe Ultime project on the new thread.

This is slightly under 2/3 scale sized electric car for kids based on Bugatti Bebe, but to complicate things further with most elements of the big daddy T35, like front and rear suspension with working shock absorbers, springs and body panels of the original car etc.

It's close to completion and there are some finishing touches to be added like leather straps, instruments, body screws, correct colour, etc. It's a fun stage when it all come together.

Hope you like it.

Kind regards Vitaliy

You should take great pride in what you have accomplished with replicating the Original Bugatti in your scaled down version.
Great workmanship and attention to detail in this project!
Well done!thumbs upthumbs up

Absolutely fantastic, leaves me almost speechless Vitally.
But now that you've worked out all the bugs and know
how to do it.......the full size Cyclekart version should
go together pretty quick?

Thank you gentlemen!

I will post better quality pictures once painted and assembled.

Denny, I am thinking about cyclekart version and I wish I had more time (and money) to be able to do it. Maybe one day. But I follow the guys' projects and forum discussions with great interest.

Kind regards
Vitaliy

Just brilliant. Absolute irony but this week I had come into my possession a "paper" on how the original Bugatti axle was made, with drawings and dimensions!

Are you going to post that info for us Rhys???
We had a lot of discussion about that very same item
last summer, but we only had a few sketchy pictures to
work from. Vitally came VERY close to reproducing it
in 2/3 scale, still not sure how he did it.

Hello again.

Just a few more pictures of the progress if anyone in to Bugatties.

I have completed rear axle assembly (god bless Ettore) it's a clever system and watching shock absorbers working is very satisfying.

I have also drawn Jaeger style clock face in photoshop (there lots of clock face files online, but I wanted exact copy) and it was printed on vinyl. I then bought insert clock of the right diameter and machined a new clock body in aluminium. The result is below and looks close to what I wanted on the dashboard.

Hope you like it.

Kind regards Vitaliy

Hello, Vitaliy!
Simply said: magnificent work!
Without people or hand-tools around - it looks as the real Bugatti!
Great chassis especially, the same as suspension!
Regards,
Zoran
