Thank you ladies and gentlemen for your previous comments about my 3D models. It seems that a "bug" - maybe the Gaius too dithyrambic comment ? -😂 prevents people from adding some comments about my Ballot LS 1923 But, I am fond of your comments about my models, even few comments : it's a way to keep in touch with real friends and a way to create better and better models. So I upload new images of my Ballot. Who has heard about BALLOT? This French make was famous for its sportscar and racing cars but is forgotten now even in France Ballot was a French manufacturer, initially of engines, that also made automobiles between 1919 and 1932. Édouard Ballot became well known as a designer of reliable engines. He helped Ettore Bugatti in developing his first engines. The Ballot brothers, Édouard and Maurice, founded their company at the Boulevard Brune in south-central Paris in 1905. Édouard Ballot was a former naval officer, which explains the "anchor" that featured in the badges on the cars. Before World War I the factory concentrated on marine and industrial engines, and from 1910 or 1911 they were also offering automobile engines. The company was re-founded as Etablissements Ballot SA in 1910. There is little sign that Edouard Ballot himself took much interest in automobiles until December 1918. That was the month in which he had a significant conversation with RenĂ© Thomas, a leading racing driver who had won the 1914 Indianapolis 500 race driving a Delage. Ballot was persuaded to build four 4.8-litre cars that would carry the "Ballot" name and compete in the forthcoming Indianapolis 500 race, scheduled for 30 May 1919. Time seemed very short, but Ballot lost no time, notably recruiting the Swiss born engineer Ernest Henry who had already worked on preparing Peugeot cars for their successful participation in the 1914 Indianapolis 500 race. Ballot's cars competed in the 1919 race, two of them finishing in 4th and 11th places. Ballot was sufficiently encouraged to return the next year, and in the 1920 Indianapolis 500 race a Ballot driven by RenĂ© Thomas finished in second place: Ballots also took fifth and seventh places. A Ballot vehicle driven by RenĂ© Thomas also finished second in the 1919 Targa Florio. More successes followed, on both sides of the Atlantic. Ralph DePalma, an American national champion and winner of the 1915 Indianapolis 500, finished second in the 1921 French Grand Prix and French driver Jules Goux finished third. Goux went on to win the inaugural Italian Grand Prix at Brescia, Italy in 1921, driving a Ballot. Second place was taken by the team leader Jean Chassagne on a sister car; a year before, in 1920 Chassagne made the fastest BARC lap of the year at Brooklands on a 4.9-litre Ballot, coming again second. A Ballot with a straight-eight-cylinder 4.9-litre engine competed in the 1921 French Grand Prix. As well as racing engines, the company made a range of road engines which were fitted to their own production cars. The first of Ballot's own road cars was the 1921 2-litre Ballot 2-litre sports tourer. In 1923 the Ballot 2 LT and a sport version, Ballot 2 LS followed. the car which I have modelized is a 1923 Ballot LS soon available on RR in 3DClassics store. Like in reality, people can modify the wheel color, the mudguards color, the hood/bonnet color, the main body color, the chassis frame color. The Lady on the cap top has been created by Gaius in Daz. Thank you my friend.

J'espÚre que mon commentaire ne va pas tout bloquer! ;) C'est une nouvelle et superbe modélisation d'une vénérable auto que tu nous présentes là! Comme à ton habitude, les détails sont parfaits, magnifique travail!

Le premier qui dit "c'est ballot de tomber amoureux d'une auto !" sera jetĂ© aux orties...ça risque d'ĂȘtre moi car je suis subjuguĂ© par la me verrais bien en train de frimer Ă  son volant !...en outre, je me cultive mĂȘme si ce n'est pas forcĂ©ment facile Ă  replacer dans une soirĂ©e ! Tu me diras qu'il n'y a plus de soirĂ©es...chez les gens prudents ! Quant Ă  ma participation, c'est une goutte de savoir-faire au milieu d'un ocĂ©an de talent, le tien !

Like these old cars. Well made.

Non seulement cette modĂ©lisation est de toute beautĂ©, et du grand art Ă  rĂ©aliser, mais la biographie sur le constructeur Ballot est fascinante, j'ignorais tout de lui comme de cette marque. Il fait bon venir dans ta gallerie pour ces deux raisons ! 👹 👍

I had never heard of some of the classics you model. However, I admire all of them for their beauty and realism.....and their gleaming opulence.....
