1 OF ONLY 6 models EVER MADE!! 'De Clercq' Model 1
It is impossible to take pictures which can possibly come close to doing justice to the style, quality and finish of the oustanding Aviation Sculpture!
The Bugatti Model 100 was a purpose built air racer designed to compete in the 1939 Deutsch de la Meurthe Cup Race. The aircraft was not completed by the September 1939 deadline and was put in storage prior to the German invasion of France. The aircraft remained in storage throughout World War II. The aircraft was sold several times, and its twin Bugatti 50P engines were removed for automotive restorations. In 1971 a restoration effort was started. The aircraft was stored by the National Museum of the United States Air Force, then transferred to the EAA Airventure Museum collection where restoration was completed, and the aircraft remains on static display
This STUNNING model, made from Titanium & Aluminium and probably the most exquisite study of the Bugatti 100 ever made other than the original Aircraft that is. The quality is simply second to none and it's easy to see why this model retailed at £2,400.
I've pictured the model with a pair of period MkII Flying Goggles to give an idea of the scale....Wingspan 40cms - Length 38cms - Height 40cms
This is ONE of only SIX of these models ever made by De Clercq!....No. 3, the original box is also still with the model.
