Alfa Model 43 - Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B 1:43 model

Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B model by Alfa Model 43

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
The Touring-bodied Alfa Romeo spider which won the Mille Miglia in 1938 is one of the most famous cars ever produced and also one that has, understandably, caught the imagination of many model makers over the years. There were actually four near identical factory team cars on that event and they went on to run in several other events later in the year including several hillclimbs, Villoresi winning the event in the mountains above Parma in late May 1938, with the only modification from the Mille Miglia layout being the addition of individual aeroscreens. Alfa Model 43ís hand builts here are well finished with plenty of fine detail and instantly recognisable as the famous spiders, though close examination to event photos raise a few questions. These are difficult cars to model and at the rear the cover behind the seats is very tall and viewed from above the car appears to taper a little too much. Something didnít look quite right at the front either and eventually we realised that the wing line is very good but the grille is a little on the deep side. The hillclimb car also has the Mille Miglia type windscreen. Another question to which we donít know for sure is that of colour. We always think of these cars as being a rich dark red but the two models are finished in quite a pale shade.


About Alfa Model 43

Well finished and presented resin hand built models. Good paint and a modest amount of carefully applied photo-etch detailing. Subjects usually the slightly more unusual Alfa Romeo subjects, plus a few Ferraris, again rarely modelled versions. Made in Italy.
