Bugatti type 59(Steam version)
There is a static 1:16 Bugatti bugatti type 59 vintage cars, very beautiful and I want it in my hands become dynamic remote control car, so I did.

Received express parcels, open is a very nice static car models.


Unfortunately, in addition to the yellow car shell is zinc alloy. Chassis wheels are all the other plastic parts.


Make a mini boiler, methane gas fuel

















Boiler fitted to the car effect.

Production bracket.



Model car wear fixing holes.


Fixed steam engine








After making the drive axle, because it is plastic, you need to install copper sleeve section.


Unilateral drive for the rear axle, its role appears to prevent the wheel when the car understeer walking, slip and drift.


Reduction gear Installation

The basic effect of the vehicle, put the seat at the fuel tank.

This is a VERY BEAUTIFUL car.
I GREATLY ENJOY watching your threads.
Are you going to make a video to show it running?

I do have a question though (since I know nothing about this sort of thing, is may seem stupid, so please forgive me).
Would it be possible to have the fuel tanks on the outside of the car (between the body and the rear wheels) and run the lines under the car, so that you could have a working interior (with a seat and controls)?
