An excellent build Jordi.

I love the figures you made, how did make them, what did you use to start with?
Did you use the original rims that where with the pyro kit?
Any chance to see a photo of the chassis?
Thanks for showing your build to us, much appreciated.

Cheers,
Danny

Nice one Jordi! I did one of my own but couldn't find or afford the Pyro kit. I opted to Frankenstein an MPC Alfa and AMT Jaguar SS100 to come up with my Nuvolari ALFA

Hello sirs,

Sorry for the delay in replying.

First thank you for your comments.

There are some questions answered:

Attached are some photos where you see what I say.

The chassis is of a Jaguar XK Ninco, adapted.



Ninco Wheels clasic .. are simply painted matte black.



The figures are a mix ... of course .. Airfix bodies (Alfa driver) with LMM and Protoslot heads and arms ... figuaras to 1/35 and the cigar is mine ..



(all cloned ........ but you can not say .... jejejee)

The Pyro kits? on eBay can get pretty good price, is a Dutch website .. but they are very expensive ...



I hope I have been helpful.

Jordi

The Pyro kits of that car usually sell for about $30-60 USD... way too much for me. Even the MPC examples are getting too pricey.

Below are two of my Alfa mods. The first one now belongs to Swissracer.


It's just the MPC car with a bobbed rear. Below is the second car... I'll not part with it...

I just completed a Pyro Alfa Romeo and agree the prices are out of site on this kit. A nice car, but lacking in fine detail, but no one else produced it to my knowledge.

A beautifully made example of a mediocre model.

One has to remember of course that the Pyro kits were made almost 50 years ago and it is great to see that folk are building them rather than just 'collecting' them.

Peter.
