Hi All,

Just a few pics of a "holiday" project I've got going. I had to take a break from the Bugatti T35 i had been working on for a year and some.

This is the 1/12 Model Factory Hiro Alfa Romeo 8C-2900B. IMHO, this is one of the most beautiful automobiles ever created, never mind the fact it was built as a race car. There were just 4 made, with all "4" still in existence. “4” is in quotes, as the example in the Simone collection is essentially a recreation, based on the destroyed chassis of one of the original 4.

Anyway, the pics:

Fantastic build Mark.
Out of interest, how long is this model. It looks to be massive in the pics?

Hi Chris,

It’s about 15” overall. The body is 3 pieces! The two from wings, and then a single casting for all the rest.

MFH resin must be seen to be believed!

Cheers,

Mark
