Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Gran Sport Spider Modificato

The Pocher Alfa Romeo 8c 2300 spider is among the most ornery kits ever devised.  The Elves of DMC

have been steering a course around this kit for nearly a decade, but inspiration has finally trumped fear

and trepidation.  This model is 'modificato' because it has a Monza nose and hoods and represents

a 'day two' car, a car that is no longer frresh from the factory, but far from end of its life, still new

enough to win races and to be the highlight of any gathering of sports racers.

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.
