I have that one too. It's quite decent, considering its very low price. ;)

This arrived today and i'm delighted with it. I've had my eye on it for while but could never justify the price, but then i got some cash back on a new internet deal and splurged on this. An Alezan pro-built Maserati Racing. Lovely!

I wasn't aware of the "Racing"....probably because it never raced ;) .

I like the shape which has aged pretty well for a 1991/1992 car and Alezan look to have done a very nice job of replicating it. No wonder you're delighted.

Very nice. I like the Maseratis from this era and this is one of the rarest.

Great addition.

Looks like it was based on Maserati official photos etc. On my wish list.

Very nice. I have bought a couple of Alezan's upgraded older castings in the last few years and they are now of high quality. Their real strength of course, is that most of the models they make are made by no one else.

That's a good-looker and the detail seems pretty good.

The unmistakable hand of Pinifarina. I prefer the pre facelift model.

My neighbour had a 1:1 V6 GTV for a while but it was so unreliable that he sold it pretty quickly.

Not a fan of the original, I like the front end but the rear is a little unbalanced and more bori g than the agressive fro t end suggests. However, this is a really nice model and the car is great to drive.

As much as I love Alfa's, I agree with Tom's sentiments that the front and rear of the GTV didn't seem that cohesive....its like a cut an shunt of 2 separate cars. Nevetheless, it was unique and the model looks great.

I don't normally do front engined Ferrari convertibles, but I saw a California in the flesh a couple of weeks ago and was sufficiently smitten to treat myself to this partswork.

Maybe "bella donna" is stretching it for the brutal ISO Griffo 7 litre by Minichamps, but it has a certain charm.

Incredible car and model - surprisingly they've sold at bargain prices for a few years. So impressed, I've bought all 3 colors :)
