Italeri Alfa Romeo 8c 2300 Monza
Posted by oldmovieguy on Sunday, May 17, 2020 7:04 AM

Hello folks

oldmovieguy here returning to modelling after a gap spanning childhood to dotage. The kit I've got my eye on is from the Italian manufacture 'Iteleri' and is the Alfa Romeo 8c Monza in 1/8 scale. It looks a humdinger of a kit but I'm slightly concerned that my skill set could be a bit lacking . There was review of the box contents about nine months ago on the Scale Auto Magazine site on YouTube Yeats that  said to keep an eye out for the build in future issues of the magazine. Does anyone know if this has happened yet or when it a likely to happen As a bit of hand holding, either in print or video will be a big help. I did come across a guy on YouTube who had made the 1/8 Fiat 860 from the same era and had posted 25 highly detailed videos of his build, happy days I thought until he started speaking in Russian. So if anyone is out there in modelling land and knows of such a build reviews or articles, I'm all ears. Many thanks for reading this and stay safe in these strange times.

Hi!

 

The review of Italeri's Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza will appear in the August 2020 issue of Scale Auto. We're working on the issue now.

Thanks for your questions, and thanks for reading.

The hardest part of the kit is swallowing the $200 cost. I'm nearing completion of mine and have mostly enjoyed it plus have encountered no significant issues. Everything fits well and the instructions are clear enough that you'll have no problems. The tiny screws and nuts can be annoying but work but you'll need your own screw driver. I used one from an iold eye glasses repair kit. A plastic wrench is included and despite looking foolish it works well. Go for it and enjoy. Soprry for the lack of pictures but that's well beyond my pay grade.
