  1. Thanks David and all of you 🙂 The kit is very good! Highly recomended !! It´s up to the modeler how much extras you want to have, there are new spoke rims out there on the market, but the kits looked good enough for me, this time 🙂 ... I have one more in the stash.. There are rumors regarding Italeri is going to release a fender version too, thats nice 🙂 I hope you will try the 1/12 scale sometimes, much plastic for the money 🙂 and very satisfying to look at 🙂 . Italeris Mefistofele and Fiat 806 is also very nice, old Protars with a little more job but looks very good in the end! Happy New Year from Sweden ! Thomas
  2. Hi. This is Italeris new Alfa kit. A very good kit without major problems, just some ejection and sinkmarks to deal with. I choose to do the version that was driven by Helle Nice, a female driver from that era, I liked the color of that car 🙂 The only modifications I did was that I molded in a rear view mirror and changed the little scoop on the hood. In the Algerian GP she used the #2 on her car so I could use the decals from the kit, I did then paint with a brush the decals with matt white so it would look hand painted as they were at that time.I have used differnt hex bolts on the engine and dashboard and rivets on the body, the seat covering is made from a wallpaper with an alcantara surface :-). Painting by Tamiya spraycan TS-15 and the lighter shade is called Ford Olympic blue, a color made for Belkits Escort MkI, thought that looked good Thomas

  8. Well done Bruce ! Looks very good, be proud :-) Thomas
  9. Hi. Just for fun :-) I did some kind of a wannabe race car. Added some extras on the engine and under the front hood. Put a race seat in with belt. The dash got switches and a tachometer. Extra headlights was scratched and also "straps" or what you call it on the front hood. A very nice kit , very fun to build :-) Thomas
  10. Thanks :-) The chrome parts is Molotovs chromepen , used it in my airbrush as it is
  11. Thanks all 😁 I used a chromepen as a base för the tail lights , followed by modelmasters clear red 4630.
  12. Thanks! They are open, old kit but not so bad.
  13. Hi I decided to try to build this kit oob, but I did some detailing. Mostly rivets , bolts , hoses,wires, and some other stuff. Modified the headlights protection shield, made a shield in the front too. The exhaust got a new support. Painted with Tamiya spraycan TS9. The bodypart is painted with an airbrush, a mix of Humbrol 3 and black then satin varnish. The leather straps works :-) A very old kit with lack of details but not so bad :-) Thomas
  14. Thank you very much ! I´m very glad you liked it :-) I saw Peters build and it was amazing ! I recall he did some modifactions on the engine and some other nice stuff too. Thomas
  15. Hi.I built this kit many years ago, I think the kit is great ! Plenty of room for detailing. If I built it today , I probably added much more stuff :-) Thomas
  16. Hi Now my Fiat is finished, thanks for your support along the way :-) Thomas
  17. Thanks cato! It´s soon finished, put it in a new thread then. Fixed my picture problem too :-)
  18. The kit is good! No major problems at all, some errors in the manual regarding painting, better follow your refs. The valve springs need to be replaced, looks toyish.The seat in the kit is wrong compared with the original one in the car today. I´m glad you like it :-) My problem just now is to get the pictures right :-(
