As inaccurate as the two models are (especially the 935, as I'm sure you're aware), it's a nice set to have. I got mine when Exoto were dumping them for next to nothing. I'm glad you got your grail, it's always a good feeling.

Now they look stunning. It's hard to describe the moment when you finally get the models you've lusted after for a long time. It also helps when they look as good as that pair. 8-)

Great choice. These HPI Alfas are a lot better than the AA versions

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

thanks Alistair, i am really impressed with the level of detail on this model, especially for the price they go for

thanks Andy, I was debating on whether or not to pick up the HPI or Autoart 1993 Larini car. There's quite a huge difference in price, so it all comes down to whether i want a model with opening features or whether the cheaper sealed resin will be good enough.

155 looks great anyway, even better in Jäger dress. Love it.

Sexy Alfa :D
I have been thinking about getting one myself, especially since the HPI ones are generally a good bit cheaper than the AA one. AA one doesn't quite seem like a $200 model from the pics I saw, although it does look damn nice.

Get the HPI. I bought the AA Larini and then the AA Nanini. Shortly after putting them on display together i bougt the HPI Larini and have put the AA up for sale

The AA is great but side by side no contest

I think they are probably oversized and not to scale tbh Jeff, although they do look fairly 'chunky' in the photos below. The rear tyres on the model do look like they are ready for the local drag strip :)

thought I'd update this thread with a few new additions since my last post. Like my 1:43s I sold on quite a few of my models, but i still have a few remaining

First up something a little modern, the #51 AF Corse Ferrari 458 GTC from the 2013 Le Mans race.

The 2013 version of the 458 raced by AF Corse were upgraded from the 2012 cars. The changes were basically aero tweaks particularly on the bonnet, the front splitter, rear wing and rear bumper. The number 51 car managed to complete 311 Laps during the race (37 Laps behind the winning Audi and 4 Laps behind the GTE Pro Class winning Porsche 991) and set the fastest lap time for GTE Pro during the race of 3'56"630.

#51 AF Corse Ferrari 458 GTC, Le Mans 2013
Class/Group: GTE Pro
Grid Position: 28th
Race Position: 21st (6th in GTE Pro Class)
Drivers: G. Bruni, G Fisichella, M Malucelli
Chassis: F142GT2876
Engine: 4498CC Ferraari F142 V8 / 90 degrees 4v DOHC
Below Model: 1:18 BBR Limited to 80 pieces

Though I'm not a fan of the Ferrari, it is a fabulous model. The Porsche is much more to my liking, love it.

I've seen many beautiful 1/18 racers on this forum, like Andy's Jag but I LOVE the 458. It's my favorite subject modeled to perfection.
