Hi, my Name is Michael and i'm a great Alfa Romeo Fan.

I always dreamt of a model of the Alfa Romeo 159 SW ti, which is the most sportive looking Alfa Romeo 159.

The car got a sport suspension, side panels, 19" rims, Brembo braking system and many other parts the standard Alfa doesn't have.

 

 

I was looking for the model a long time, but the only model released was the 1/18 version from Mondo Motors, which does not look very sportive.

I disassemled the model, removed the laquer, cleaned the holes, crafted the side panels, fitted it for the sport suspension, tooks scale looking ti-rims

and Fitted a Brembo braking system :)

So now he is ready ...

The wheels have yet to get an Alfa logo. An antenna was mounted and the QV-plate which I got from Italy, is also up.
The ti-badges I have 'drawn' after my printer ate the decal sheet ...

Thus, the Alfa Romeo is now coming under the hood in the showcase :) - I hope you like him :)

Now I'm looking for my second Cars in 1:18 -  Citroen C4 from 2007  in the 1:18?
is this car available?
