I have a 1/4 scale 50T about 3/4 of the way done. Now that I have been building engines for a while I'm not very proud of the engineering. If you want a place to start you could build on the plans. Knowing what I know now, I would'nt build to what I have.

An organization called "The Bugatti Trust" has possession of tens of thousands of the original drawings. They require a copying fee of $5 a sheet. The T50 had 400 drawings to complete the engine alone.

I thought the same thing. If you want my drawings all the basic dimensions are correct. I reworked them about 2 years ago. The basics are solid. I might make changes like pressurized oil system. I would loose the belt in the fromt and go gears so I could also drive the water pump and blower. One piece crankshaft.
