Both Monogram and Airfix offered EB110 kits. As the 110 and the Veyron are similar in concept and dimensions, that might get you in the ballpark, and with a lot of custom work, you could have your Veyron. I've seen some of your work already, and I'm sure you could do it.

Although I'm pretty sure the two cars don't share anything in 1:1. it would take a real expert to know any better on a model. Just research the pics and articles on the two cars to get as close as possible. It would be a terrific project, and really show some old-timers a thing or two.

Plan your work, work your plan.

Measure twice, post once.

Hi,

 

i don't know of any kits in this scale but there is a 1/24 slotcar from Auto Art. they sell for around £35 in the uk which is roughly $50. they look nicely detailed.

hope this helps

 

thanks jason

The only 1/24 scale Veyron is the Autoart slot car, and it's a beauty. I dare say it's probably nicer than what any kit company other than perhaps Tamiya could do with it. If you have to have a Veyron, it's the only choice, and it's pretty stunning right out of the box.

i guess we can only hope tamiya do pick up the license. If i owned bugatti, they'd be the ones i'd want producing it.

You really need to look at Revell Germany's latest car kits.   Well up there with Tamiya's and about half the price of Tamiya's offerings here in the UK. Their new Ferrari 250 GTO has to be seen to be believed!

Don't even think about converting an EB110 into a Veyron.  Totally differently styled cars with totally different engines. Look at both on the web and you will see what I mean.

Those Veyrons are nice as I saw in in the Petersen Museum when I was there in '07, but they're a bit out of my price range right now. If someone would come out with a kit of it, I would probably buy it and put it on the "pile" with the rest of my unbuilt kits waiting for some "bench time." Maybe I'll look into the Autoart slot car.

Airfix has made a quickbuild 1/24 scale Veyron kit aimed at kids to click together in about 1/2 hour and play with after. Overall the body shape looks really good although it clicks together like Lego and the interior is severely compromised. It has potential but with a hell of a lot of work to make an acceptable scale model from it. Really it is a great pity that Airfix did not go the snap kit route in the way that Revell and Lindberg do.
