Bugatti scale drawings

Maintained by Jaap Horst
Those who ever tried to build a miniature from scratch, or even tried to modify an existing miniature, know how important it is to have good scale (if possible with measures) drawings of the car you want to make.
I here have gathered some of the drawings I encountered and where to find them! If you know of any others, you can let me know at: J.J.Horst@bigfoot.com If it is impossible for you to get the source (mentioned at the bottom of the page), I can make photocopies for you.
3a: I now have the Royale Weinberger drawing copied (Big A1 format, quite costly), including packaging and posting, Iīll send it to you for $15. please send me cash, as cheques cost me $10 to cash. Address below. I am convinced that this drawing will enable you to build the Bugatti Royale from scratch, itīs the same one as Gerald Wingrove used! Jaap Horst
