    Amazing, I have just started No. 22 in the middle as a little side project. I can only agree this is a great little model. A gem. It fits together beautifully.

    How did you scale it up to 1:24? The PDFs I downloaded are locked.

    I am looking forward to the wheels.

    I would love to build one or two of these, but I can't find the download link anywhere on the site.

    The model is from Ichiyama's Paper Models, at least the Russian language site above links to Ichiyama's site:

    I hope this helps!

    First - How to download Bugatti collection?


    @ David H David, I use Konica Minolta Bizhub C252 for printing (A3Wide format). So, the postscript driver can change the scale of image. I used 125% scale factor and A3Wide paper. That's all.

    After two evenings I have 4 wheels and almost finished Bugatti :)

    I had thought that you probably did it that way (I have access to an A3 printer at work so may follow your lead).

    Thanks for the kind words about the big old truck... wait till you see the size of the trailer!

    I can hear those skinny little tyres screeching around the bends.

    Wouldn't it be great to convert one to slot car racing...

    Great Find!

    Thanks Old Man,

    I have been wanting to build a Bugatti T35 or a T51 for years. I have a free German model but it is not nearly as accurate and detailed as this one.
    And the Bugatti 'bleu de France' blue color is exactly the right shade - not too dark and not too saturated.

    Wonderful model and a very nice build!
    Thanks again,
    Bengt :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Downloading Problems

    That´s strange, striker,

    I followed OldMan´s excellent download step-by-step instructions above and I had no problems. I saved each model to the desktop before opening them up in Acrobat Reader.

    It´s only a pity, though, that the PDF files are locked, because I´d like to do some color corrections for my printer. Now I guess I first have to scan a good, crisp print in A4 format and then do a hi-res TIF from that to work on.

    Try doing it step-by-step again and save the files to your desktop.
    Hope it works out for you.

    The model does look great old man. Did you recolor it after you finished?

    No, this is original color :)

    Printer Color Profiles . . .

    Hi striker,

    That´s just me - I haven´t adjusted my new EPSON A3+ printer color profiles correctly vs. the calibrated RGB color display of my iMac yet.
    Then you sometimes get little surprises in color nuance when you print the files out.

    One of these days now . . .
    Bengt :cool:
