Alfa Romeo GTA
Posted by PatW on Sunday, September 01, 2019 9:55 AM

On moving a few things around at home I came across Bench Racer by Andy Kellock in the June 2015 edition of Scale Auto magazine, so spurring me to do something with the Tamiya road version of this car.

 

Box stock bar a half roll cage, doorside 'bullet' mirror, rear boot mounted fuel filler, short exhausts and decals. Adding also Tamiya Italian Red paint work and gloss white front corner as per research of these iconic racers.

Thanks midnightprowler. Yes this was the stock version, here's the kit............

I understand from the article in Scale Auto Mag there is also a similar one distributed by Gunze Sangyo, both in 1/24th scale.

Very realistic. Those wheels look like they could be roll’n down the road!

In the pattern: The pattern is empty. What an oddity. Will decide what to build next after returning from the NATS ...winner is the USS Vandegrift FFG-48 because I found a Pontos Adv Detail set at the Nats! Pizza

Nicely done! Alfa has such a generous motoring history, very interesting to research.
