Form our Reades – Victor Ortiz’s pocher 1/8 scale ’32 Alfa Romeo junker and project car

If you like a model kit and can not decide how to build it, then buy a second kit and build both options such as Victor did with Pocher’s 1/8 scale 1932 Alfa Romeo Spyder Touring Gran Sport (Pocher K73)

Restoration project diorama 1/8 scale – 1932 Alfa Romeo Spyder

This diorama has won the “best of show”, and “best diorama” distinctions in the national IPMS (Mexico) contest. No wonder. The amount of detail is stunning!

 

 

 

 

 

Junker diorama 1/8 scale – 1932 Alfa Romeo Spyder

This junker is just great. You can clearly see the advantages of using a 1/8 scale model kit for a junker. Great details!

 

 

 

Thank you Victor Ortiz for sharing your work with us!

Thanks for the e-mail. Victor Ortiz does some pretty cool work. I just got back into model kits after a 40+ year absence. The skills have advanced so much since the days of Car Model Magazine and Model Car Science. Thanks for the rust e-book, I’ve got my steel wool soaking now. Any words of advice would be welcome.

Hi Andy, I’m glad every time I hear someone is coming back to the hobby. I consider this hobby -of course 😉 – one of the best hobbies you can have!
I don’t know what you mean by “any words of advice”. If you ask us specific questions we love to give tips and advice, so you know where to find us.
Cheers!
