Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Alfa Romeo 24HP 1910 Blue Closed Alternative versions MKSPL43006 Blue Open MKSPL43007 Green Open & MKSPL43008 Green Closed This rather staid-looking open four seat tourer is a rather significant piece of automotive history. Technically we should be calling it an A.L.F.A. as it predates Nicola Romeo’s purchase of the company by five years and it is the first car to be produced by the Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili. The blue car matches that preserved in the Alfa Romeo museum, one of a number of examples that were built. The models are very old fashioned in many ways, with the clear majority of the parts including the tyres cast in white metal. The brass fittings, which include carriage lamps and a long snaking horn, are painted rather than plated and the main paintwork is a little heavy. The fine pinstriping is applied carefully as decal and one more modern touch is the inclusion of etch for the windscreen frame. Overall charming models and very important subjects.
Last stocks of very well cast kits, usually metal but some resin, with a good level of metal and photo-etched detail. Colour density on decals can be a little inconsistent, as can instructions, but otherwise very good kits. An extensive range of accessories too. Publishers also of excellent Modelling Guides for those building and detailing Ferrari F1 subjects. Made in Italy.
