will be watching as I must get this kit myself as I've often eye'd off the old Porcher version in 1/10th.  Thank goodness this one is much cheaper ! :D

Hi all more work on the engine, the pipework is supposed to be gunmetal (why? Surley it would be steel or ally) anyway I decided for a bit of interest I would do it copper.

Ha...at first glance I read this thread title as "Alfa Romeo 2300 BC" - that would have been different...

Hi all there are upgrade kits for the wheels of this kit but I honestly can see nothing wrong with the kit ones, they don't even need cleaning no flash of anything.

Lookin' Good !

That last pic makes me think - forget about the body, just complete it as an open-air run-about :D
