boulogne car body help needed
#22
The only way the driver could possibly get behind the wheel is from the passenger side & then scoot across... I'm 5'10" and fit into any & every Seven, but I think this would be an extra challenge.... that said I'm more than prepared to try <grin>

Tony at the risk of Grandmothers & eggs, what we did for our single seater was to take the side view of the Kaye Petre replica and scaled up the body based on the known size of the 19" wheel. Yes ours isn't identical, but rather an evocation although the profiles are remarkably close.

I'd do the same for the Bologne car & now that Austin Harris has kindly posted the picture from the side, you can measure the wheel & work from there. It's definitely going to be easier than re-creating Slippery Anne !!

Looking at the 2 cars above, #12 & #13 - the aero screens are different shapes and the hooter has moved on #13 which also has a spare wheel & a dash top mounted rev counter a-la Slippery

Go with the rounded aero screens & do incorporate the mount for the spare wheel - it'll be a conversation piece, but make it detachable to keep the clean line racer look
