ITALERI 1/12 ALFA 8c.
This is my take on the Alfa 2300 Monza.
It’s a fairly poor kit and reqired quite a bit of work. I’ve used somewhat massive amount of add ons, all scratch built to fit.
The engine bay is re-wired with various copper and vinyl pieces and a new ignition loom fabricated.
I had to make my own spoked wheels, they’re not perfect but the best I could mange with my limited skills.
I pimped up the interior by adding custom fuel lines and fixtures.
I then made a real leather seat to fit.
All the panel pins, latches and retainers were scratch built.
I also decided to make a working piano hinge for the bonnet.
Painted in Mr Color lacquers with many layers of gloss.
I decided to do it in “Museum condition” rather than “period” just because I liked the look.
