Re: ** Alfa Romeo Miniaturen **

In the latest Klaverblaadje, Fer shows in the MARC article a small picture of the 24HP engine built by Autodelta43 in 1/43 scale . Such a little jewel deserves being better reproduced than the small picture, as its level of built quality and finish easily stands being magnified with macro photo. I d...

Re: ** Alfa Romeo Miniaturen **

It is now the season for wishing all Alfa miniature collectors a happy 2019 with many mini-Alfas. 2018 was the 80th anniversary of the 158, so I will close this birthday year with 158s in various forms: How about a 158/159 in crystal? https://im5.freeforumzone.it/up/58/15/1453655720.jpg Ok, it's dif...

Re: ** Alfa Romeo Miniaturen **

I have recently found a few pecurliar Alfa Romeo models, among which one remains a mistery for me, as it is not listed in Fer's listing nor do I see any reference that could match in any other publication. It is a 1/32 Tipo B (P3) Monoposto, quite heavy, so my best guess for now would have it made o...

Re: ** Alfa Romeo Miniaturen **

The Riva Cattaneo has been reviewed with detail pictures on this page . While the overall work of Marco Sambataro is very good, as is the choice of the model, I can't help but regret some minor quality faults that should be avoided in such a price range. I certainly don't want to play down Gulp, on ...

Re: ** Alfa Romeo Miniaturen ** RIO 24HP Torpedo

RIO die-cast 1:43: de M4/Rio/Best Italia groep komt ‘eindelijk’ met een model van de eerste A.L.F.A. De 24 HP lag toch jaren voor de hand maar kwam nooit van RIO. Niet de kwaliteit en prijs van handbouw van Racing43 of Autodelta43/Maurizo Sabatini, een latere 24 HP Torpedo. Maar een redelijk model ...

It looks to be actually a 33 TT 12.

Re: ** Alfa Romeo Miniaturen **

Let's go for an unusual Alfa toy? So, this time, no car, no truck, not even a trolleybus. As explained in many Alfa Romeo history books, and also in Het Klaverblaadje 8) :wink: , Alfa survived the 30s only thanks to the conversion to aircraft engine production. Accordingly, Alfa-powered aircraft hav...

Re: ** Alfa Romeo Miniaturen **

An unusual comparison: I thought that it would be a tribute to both the (very) old toy and to the (excellent) modern model to "compare" the 1940 Alfa 6C2500S chassis 913007 coupé Farina by Mercury (vintage 1948!) and EMC (2015 I seem to remember). My point is that each of them, in its own league, is...

Re: Alfa Romeo terug in de Formule 1?

Wow, that's breaking news. Alfa Romeo back in F1, but as a sponsor! That says alot about what Alfa Romeo currently is. But was Alfa not already a sponsor during the last years? So what's so exciting? Probably the biggest news are to be found in the press release, and are about history more than futu...

Re: ** Alfa Romeo Miniaturen **

Are these handcrafted wooden models? I think a great achievement. Yes they are. Block(s) of carved wood (pine or balsa) finished with putty, that can be understood where they have small damages. The wheels came from large production toy cars, and details and glasses made with recycled materials. Ra...

Re: ** Alfa Romeo Miniaturen **

Some years ago, I presented here a couple of Giuliettas (Sprint and Spider), hand made out of carved wood by French modelism pioneer Raymond Daffaure, who used to be known under the "marque" RD Marmande. He carved 1/43 models on his kitchen table between 1958 and 1977, based on the few published pic...

Re: ** Alfa Romeo Miniaturen **

Indeed the AutoArt is a 2.0, but they announced years ago they would also make a GTV6 - never seen so far. Now the point is: the AutoArt is in the 100€ range (about 120 at full price when new), I wonder about the price of the Laudoracing. As now Fer presents the new 33 Periscopica by Tecnomodel, I s...

Re: ** Alfa Romeo Miniaturen **

Very good idea to reproduce the 6C2500 Castagna. I hope the quality will be up to the latest standard by Matrix.

As for the SMEC 159 kit, I'll definitely keep it untouched. If I happen to find a second one, maybe when I get retired I'll carve a 159 out of it. :roll:

Re: ** Alfa Romeo Miniaturen **

Let's go for a jump into the modelling archaeology. Into the time where a "kit" was not exactly what the word means today. Or at least where the contents of a kit were not what you would expect nowadays. We are in the early 50s, and the Alfa 159 is an almost current world champion. Then you wish you...

Re: ** Alfa Romeo Miniaturen ** . . . 3 x P2 (Lester, Day, Stanley)

Here is again a comparison of three model kits of the early days. This time the subject is the Giulietta SZ, and the vintage is around 1978. All three look quite different from each other. Left to right: GP Studio, Progetto K, Mikansue. The first two are resin, the third is in white metal. http://im...
