Very nice set but the one that stands out is the Berline de Voyage. I still like the Veyron the best. :mrgreen:

La vie en Bleu at Prescott last year had a 57c in the style of the Atalante. Sublime vehicles, the old Bugattis.

The 101 is very Jaguar like, or considering its 1950, the later Jaguars are very Bugatti 101 in appearence

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Julio and Ian have posted pix of almost all the Bugattis I own, but here's my modest Bug collection anyway.

Image
Type 57SC Atalante, a very old Solido model, one that has been with me for at least 25 years, and is a bit knocked about!

Image
Type 50, by Rio, I've seen this in the flesh at the French National Motor Museum in Mulhouse, and it leaves an impression!

Image
Bugatti Royale, by Del Prado

Image
Bugatti Royale Esders, by IXO

Image
Bugatti 57 Atlantic, by IXO

Image
Bugatti T59, Brumm

Image
Bugatti T57 Le Mans 1937, by IXO

Image
Last and least, what I think is a Brumm Bug fantasy based on the Gangloff T57SC.

There was always a flamboyance about the styling of Bugattis which catches the imagination. In the main the Marque has been nicely modelled in 1:43. It is hard to pick a favourite.

My abiding memory of Bugatti is accidentally finding the French National Motor Museum back in 1986. Driving nearish to Mulhouse, I saw a road sign with a stylised Bugatti radiator and "10km" under the radiator, nothing else. Five km later, the same distinctive radiator and "5km" underneath. Fortunately for me, I decided that any road sign with Bugatti radiators was worth steering towards, and so I found the former Schlumpf museum, then the French National Motor Museum, and spent a wonderful day there, all day, a quiet day with hardly any other visitors. Bliss. A few pix (scanned from old colour prints, excuse the quality)

Image
Welcoming 'B' sign, made from blower casing halves

Image
Rows and rows of them, every model, in every colour. Such show-offs!

Image
That Type 50. I think the models just exaggerate the screen slope a degree or two

Image
Woo hoo, the 101, I'm expecting one of these in the mail soon.

Image
A Type 73A from 1947

Image
Hey, kids' toys. Ettore Bugatti's boys had their own little bugs to zoom around in.

I knew I had some more Schlumpf Museum pix in a box somewhere, so I scanned them and here they are. Sorry about the pic quality in some, but 27-year-old colour snaps look like this sometimes...

Image
Walk in, this is what I saw (this is back in 1986, and I believe it has changed a lot since then).

It's very nice to see your beautiful Bugatti models, Steve! ;)

And Jamie, your photos of the Schlumpf museum are fabulous! Those three are the only Royales that I haven't seen in real life yet! The Coupé Napoleon is my favourite of them all! :geek:

In all my fluster to scan and post the extra Schlumpf pix here, I neglected to say how much I like your lovely old Bugatti models, Steve. Really nice to see them.

Did anyone else notice the fact that all those cars in the museum pics were on axle stands and the cars were not ACTUALLY touching the ground, 1st time I've ever seen that before :shock:
