Love the 1:1, and it looks like the model is a great place to start. Paint and interior looking good.

I've kept the stock wheels and reinforced the inside before machining them.

Also small mods to the bothem. Not really impressive but just enough to make the Alfa look beter when its sitting on its wheels

Completed the roll cage and fitted the lights

That is a classy design and a very cool car. Nice work on the "remodel", too. Were the caps molded onto the kit's wheels?
