32nd scale Bugatti 100p
I thought that the aviation enthusiasts would like to see something I worked on last year.
I was given a set of castings for one of the desktop models produced by J. Lawson Model Makers. They sell finished examples to raise funds to help pay for the full size flying replica being built in America (Mr Lawson is the engineering director for the project) Read all about this amazing build on their Facebook page
I was asked to create a militarised "What If" version to help promote the full size build. I made a couple of twin .50cal gun pods and converted the pilot from a Hasegawa 109 into a French pilot of the period. The scheme is based on other French aircraft of WW2, please remember this is a totally fictitious scheme as the original 100p never flew. All the markings except the Bugatti name on the tail were airbrushed. The camouflage was done freehand.
Thanks for looking,
