Alfa Romeo 6C Berlinetta Sport Castagna by Matrix
This was one of ten lightweight aluminium-bodied coupes built by Castagna on the 6C chassis and was intended as a works car for the 1940 Mille Miglia, although the event never took place. The model is based on the one surviving example (this car apparently fitted with an experimental V12 engine) and the general shape of the model matches photos of the restored machine pretty well. The placement of some of the small etched details is a little off on our sample, the most obvious being the side window frames, but these parts are finely made and the deep grey pant beneath them is excellent.

From the original creators of the Neo range, this resincast series offers a wide range of mostly road car subjects. Some are very familiar classics but we also see plenty of very rare and usual machines ranging from Maharajah's Rolls Royces to Citroen and Volvo limousines! Overall casting quality is excellent, paint finishes usually to a very high standard and plenty of fine etch used for small trim. Wire wheels on some subjects can be a little unconvincing but otherwise very consistent. Made in China.
