boulogne car body help needed - Tony Betts - 15-11-2020

Help needed.

Does anyone have or can supply drawings dimensions for the 1923 boulogne car body.

Or are the replicas out there just guess work.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks tony.

Best to ask Adli Alabi

I'd have a word with Steve Hodgson, Tony.  He should point you in the right direction.

Hi Tony

I assume you’ve seen the drawing by Richard Smith on page 59 of “The Source Book”.  It is very small and only has a scale rather than detailed dimensions.

Cheers

Howard

Hey Tony 

I am pretty sure Adli sold his.

There are some excellent period photographs and articles in existence Tony, I would be inclined to build my own version from close study of these. If you copy someone else's interpretation you are likely too make the same mistakes as has happened with Brooklands models, the replicas made in the past were good attempts based on the information and techniques available at the time but today I believe we have better resources at hand.


RE: boulogne car body help needed - Archivist - 16-11-2020

This one of the three photos the Archive purchased a couple of years back. Sadly, we have no drawings or other info in the Archive, but I couldnt resist the excuse to show this photo again. These photos were taken a little after Boulogne at Le Mans. There is an article in 2018B Association Magazine that tells more..

I know it's no real help, Tony, but I just love the photos...
