Detailed Model Cars

This Alfa Romeo Corsa is a replica of a car raced by the Portugese driver Vasco Sameiro;

 among his many races was the 1934 Isle of Man race.

The model features a working steering wheel lever that operates

the levers that control the magneto on the off side of the engine.

 

 

 

 

The aluminum ignition loom protects the wires from the magneto,

mounted in place of a generator.

 

 

 

The model depicts a racer that is still in its prime, with obvious

 signs of care and attention as well as some modifications.

 

 

 

The lever on the far right side of the dashboard is connected

to the system of rods and levers leading to the carburetor.

 

 

Safety wires, springs, and shock absorbers are from Model Motorcars

The digital photos on this site are unaltered.  Well, 'unaltered' may be a bit of an exaggeration, but for the most part they bear

some semblance to the models depicted.  If you see dust, the image is dead nuts on.  If there is no dust, it is something of a crapshoot, but

captures the essence of the model without the distractions of  background clutter and pet hair and  the odd insect wing or bird dropping.
