Cool The Bugatti 100p full scale flying reproduction project

"Why would anyone undertake to build a replica of an airplane that never flew and for which there are no known plans and few relevant drawings?"

http://www.bugatti100p.com/

"The Bugatti Model 100 was a purpose built air racer designed to compete in the 1939 Deutsch de la Meurthe Cup Race...........
The Model 100 had an unusual inboard mounted twin engine arrangement driving forward mounted twin counter rotating propellers through driveshafts. The aircraft also featured a 120 degree
V-tail arrangement and retractable landing gear. The construction was mostly of wood, with sandwiched layers of balsa and hardwoods, including tulipwood stringers covered with doped fabric."
