    They'll give me as much time as I want--one of the perks of working for them as a writer-on-call for the past 18 years.

    I'll take my large tripod and minipod and shoot as much by available light as I can. The available light in the museum is not ideal--not much natural light. I'll do the best I can.

    The engines were straight out of the Bugatti automobile line, so there should be reference materials out there somewhere.

    Bugatti Aircraft Photos -- Coming soon, honest!

    I took a snootful of photos of the Bugatti at the EAA Museum last week. Haven't had time to sort thru them--I'll find time this week.
    I promise! wall1

    Ron Twellman, the curator, talked with Emil Zarkov about a paper model of the Bugatti, when Emil visited the museum this past summer. Ron is very excited about that project and was very supportive of my "photo phield trip."

    No worries,

    Bugatti 100 P Aircraft Photos

    David,

    I am really looking forward to seeing your photos. There aren´t so many photos around of this beautiful bird.

    Let´s hope that our Cardmodels.net member Dr Emil Zarkov will take on this card model project - then it would be in very good hands.

    Best,
    Bengt :thumb:

    Bugatti Photos

    The photos are ready to upload. I'd like a volunteer to do that for me. I've spent several hours in shooting and editing the photos; I'd be grateful if someone else would spend the hour or two it will take to upload them one at a time. (There are about 120 hi-res images.)

    I can send them to you as a ZIP file--a LARGE Zip File. Don't even think about it unless you have a high-speed connection, or want to spend all night getting the e-mail. (I could send a cd if that's more practical.)

    If you're willing to help, please contact me offlist -- at sakrison@charter.net, and I'll send you the images. Meanwhile, here are a couple of low-res samples. The museum staff was preparing for its annual "Fright Night" kids' weekends, so you might see Halloween decorations in the background.

    Thanks,
    --David

    Bugatti 100 P Aircraft Photos

    Wonderful work, David,

    You´ve actually been inside the cockpit! Amazing. I´m glad to see that you took the troble of working in available light. Can´t wait to see the rest of the images of this one-of-a-kind machine.

    Perhaps an option that you might consider for a selection of your photos for this forum could be to use http://photobucket.com/ - it´s a free image server which I have found extremely useful. You can upload hi-res photos as many as you want, which will automatically be re-sized without loss of quality or resize them yourself before uploading them, which saves some time. It was recomended to me by Eric Goedkoop of this forum.

    All the best,
    Bengt :thumb:
