Nice job, as usual.

I drink only Maker's Mark.

I've been an Makers Mark ambassador since I met a guy who sold them the wax for their bottles. I gave him my card and a few weeks later I got a letter from the founders son and president of the company thanking me for my support. I get a nice gift from them every year at Christmas and there are (were, pre-covid) events around the country with food and tastings. Maker's 46 is especially good.
What a lucky guy you are :D Never heard of this brand before, but will have a look and tell you ;)

Happy accident with the wheels! It looks amazing, glad that you're back to gloss colours as they complement the shape.
Don't worry, I am going to use gloss colours for all further builds :P . The wheels have been replaced meanwhile, this was - luckily - not so very difficult.

The colour is spot-on. 8-)
Thanks! Meanwhile the original car is restored, but they used a much brighter "French blue", which cannot be the original hue.

Looks amazing Jean, though a little part of me would like to see you produce the unrestored car just for something different :D .
This does not surprise me at all ;) But you know, I'm the "tidy guy" and could never build a car which looks "used" :)

Great update!

Are there any Bentleys and Bugatti Royales on your work bench??

Not exactly. I sell hood mascots on a well-known internet auction platform, and from time to time I need replenishment :)

...always the pity with closed cars - you can see hardly anything of those details when the model is completed :roll: However, for met it's always the mind of "I only make this model once in a lifetime", and so I make those details nevertheless...

It's great that this particular car left unrestored until a few years ago! One of the rare opportunities to study paint & trim before Pebble-Beaching :D

Image
Last turn of photo-etching for this model. Really!

Image
Fixing the trim.

Image
"Real" headlights, although...

Image
...they disappear behind the grilles.

Image
Almost ready.

Image
The shape of the rear bumper is "supposed", as it seems to be sure that the car did have bumpers, but as this chassis number is the only of four cars with a rounded tail and as there is not a single vintage photo of the car, I cannot be sure about the shape of the bumper.

Image
Unfortunately I made a mistake when designing the model: the rear lights disappear behind the bumper :? . What should I do? Well,...

Image
...let's make the bumpers detachable - for a rather sporty appearance :P

Image

Image

Image
The extravagant hood latches are made by using 0.1mm wire.

Image
The grilles are the 8th wonder of the world :D : Normally they say that you can only take the thickness of the metal sheet for the finest line to etch, in this case 0.2mm. I tried to make the grille rods 0.12 mm - and made it :P (Honestly, for punching the radiator grille I needed a dozen of issues until I succeeded :oops: )

Image
Door handles and "M. Pourtout" writing on the door sills. There are two different types of Pourtout badges, but the last car of this series got these, so I made my decision.

Image
The front badge of this particular chassis number had a "Lago" badge, so I felt free to use the Lago script for the boot cover. The use of the company's name was complex: In the early 20th century, the British (!) company Talbot had a joint venture with French company of Darracq. Later the French company developped their own cars, and for distributing those int the UK; they used the name "Darracq". In France - and for the rest of the world - the company extended its name in Talbot-Lago after Antonio Lago purchased the French brand. Therefore the same French cars were named "Talbot-Lago", "Darracq" and sometimes only "Lago" - quite confusing... :)

Image

Image

Image
Dramatic shape!

This was the last Talbot-Lago in my collection. As this big subject is completed, I took some photos in my "Cheverny" diorama. Have a look there!

Amazing result, I keep going back over your pictures.

Wouldn't it be possible to bend the rear bumper brackets so that the bumper is just below the rear lights and above the exhaust? It looks amazing without the bumpers, so there's no real need...

Great work and relatively simple looking compared to some of your projects but the fact that there don't seem to be any commercially available models makes it all the more attractive. Hopefully the likes of Matrix/Esval/Kess/Autocult will make one available for the rest of us.

Thanks! I've had the same idea with the rear bumper, but in fact it would then sit too low compared to the front bumper. So I simply leave it this way, in the showcase it's not visible, and - as you said - for photos it can be detached ;) Nobody's perfect!

I was wondering myself that there's obviously no ready-made model of this car. It's beautiful, there are three existent cars, and the names of Talbot-Lago as well as Pourtout are famous. Let's hope that someone will do it soon... :P
