    FPPM 1/12th scale Alfa Romeo 8C 2.3 Lemans 1933 winner trans kit prices. Trans kit base price is 240 Euro. I would definitely buy the wire wheels wich are better than Hiro and assembled and new tires also as they are superb and worth 115 Euro easily. I bet the driver is also nice but I have not seen pictures yet. Hiro charges a lot more for driver figures.

    TRANS KIT ( without wheels ) 240 Euro
    Wheels with Englebert tires 115 Euro
    Driver Nuvolari standing 30 Euro

    Pack with Trans kit and Wheels with Englebert tires 350 Euro

    Pack with Trans kit, wheels with Englebert tires and Driver 375 Euro

    Not bad for a die-cast, and the only model available in 1/24 (except the Maisto RC´s, but this is not really a model).
    There are some on ebay currently, for high prices, but it seems it´s the only way to get one from outside Italy, as I guess these do only sell at Italian Kiosks.
    Pictures available on net are quite poor due to the blister packing.
    Last Image is along with Burago SF15T

    Can't move it but thanks for posting anyway. I should have mine in a few days. Where does it say it was made? The older F1 models from this series say made in Bangladesh. I think it says Bangladesh in your picture.

    A few more photos of the FPPM Alfa Romeo 8C 1/12th scale transkit. Mine should be on my doorstep in a week. Hand laced wire wheels and new resin tires make it worth the trouble, but the body and details also look perfect. Nice fit for the body. Even the headlights have the correct pattern. Details Hiro would miss, although the Hiro kits have a lot more parts if that's what you like.

    No Ghibli? An Indy?
    Islero, sure. But burning demand for an Indy?
    Maybe the Maser that ran at Indy?

    Someone did a 250MM and a 340 Mexico ages ago in 1/24. I think it was ABC? Anything currently available?

    Thanks for updates as always.
    All you guys be well.

    I think SMP 24 did a Ghibli a while back, which I missed sadly. They seem very hard to find, even on ebay.
    As an aside, does anyone know if FPPM are planning any photoetch springs for the italeri Alfa Monza like Model Motorcars does for the 1/8 Pocher?
    I’m just contemplating starting my kit as lockdown has been extended by 3 weeks here in the UK...


    Best wishes and good health to all.

    Mark.

    SMP 24 did do a Ghibli and Khamsin already. The 250mm and 340 kits have been out of production for while. The 250 was by MG and was not very good and the 340 was ok and by ABC. FPPM says he might do a 340 Mexico kit someday after he finishes the Ferrari Ghia and other kits he is already working on. I am really looking forward to his 1/12th 1933 MM Alfa 8C Touring trans kit for the Italeri kit. Have not heard anything about leaf springs for the kit from FPPM. You could suggest that to him on his Facebook page.

    Yes, next model form SMP24 will be the Indy, they did the Ghibli in the past as well as the Jarama, no Islero. I continue to push him to make some rebuild of some old kit, but he prefer focusing on new one.

    I will receive the 365 GTC/4 in the coming days, week. Some are still available.

    I believe Motoi (hapico.com) is carrying them but if not contact taka_smp24 on Twitter.

    Hapico is non-functional as store/kit source for awhile. Atelier is place marker.
