    Bugatti 100 P Aircraft Photos

    Thank you, David,

    This is a MAJOR achievement. Every nook and cranny of this amazing aircraft is documented, thanks to your dedicated work.
    The question is now; who will pick up the gauntlet and tackle the design of the first card model?

    All the best,
    Bengt :thumb:

    Bugatti 100 P ("Pegasus") Racer Aircraft Model


    It´s the very basic and simple (and very small) model of Ettore Bugatti´s plane that has been around for a while - you´ll find it in one of the first pages of this thread.

    All the best,

    BIG Bugatti Racer Cut-away Drawing


    This is a very long thread and it´s not easy to keep track of what has been posted at the very beginning.

    Look here what Alcides/Luis has found out there on the web - a big cut-away artist drawing (by Hubert Cance) of the Bugatti P 100 racer:

    This is the page where it is found:
    I can imagine this must be very helpful for a Bugatti model designer?

    Thanks, Luis!

    Hey !!! Bengt this was my post !!! :x :curse:

    Just joking, when I saw the drawing I thought was a nice addition to this thread but was too late and I needed sleep.

    and you can call me "Luis Alcides", Alcides is just my middle name :thumb:

    Sorry . . .

    I am sorry, Luis,

    for 'stealing' your entry. When I found that excellent cut-away drawing I thought I would see to it rightaway that it got to this thread, where it could be of assistance to yaniv, Emil Zarkov or any other designer who wants to design the Bugatti racer. I know yaniv is working on it and this drawing shows a lot of detail, as well as the internal structure. Combined with David´s excellent photos and some plans, we now have very good documentation.

    It really is a very interesting page that you have found, by the way - so many fine drawings of many of the finest aircraft in history.

    All the best,
    Bengt :thumb:

    Bugatti Model 100 'Pegasus' Racer Aircraft Model Project

    Old news, I´m afraid, gcsmith,

    That is Alberto´s small scale paper model.
    Did you happen to read pages 1, 2 or 6 of this thread, by any chance . . ?

    All the best,

    Bugatti Model 100 'Pegasus' Racer Aircraft Plans

    Hi Golden Bear,

    Take a look at the bottom of page 1 of this thread - there you will find a (low-res) part of Gus Morfis´plan for a R/C balsa model. It is pretty detailed and if you combine it with, for example, the exploded view and color painting by artist Hubert Cance (above), you can probably go a long way.
    Here are the specs for the plane from the AirVenture museum in Oshkosh: Bugatti Model 100 Racer Specifications

    Good luck!
