    It's direct from modelmotorcars New Pocher Alfa body - 8C2900 MM .com, who usually makes aftermarket parts for Pocher kits.

    I checked the Model Motor Cars site, but it doesn't show there. Where can you find it? I only know about the small parts they offer

    It appears to have been dropped from any further planning.

    Would anybody be interested in a metal body? I'm thinking about getting one made from a CNC design. If that works, it would be possible to have more made on demand.

    Perhaps part of the explanation for why this body was never produced is that the 8C 2900 had a very different engine and chassis than the 8C 2300.

    A few of the fundamental differences between the 8C 2300 and the 8C 2900 include:

    The 8C 2900 engine had two superchargers, two carburetors, the intake manifold was on the driver's side, and the exhaust manifold was on the passenger's side

    The 8C 2900 chassis had four wheel independent suspension, a transaxle, hydraulic dampers, and hydraulic brakes.

    A reasonably accurate 8C 2900 could not be built without scratch building an 8C 2900 engine and chassis.

    This is a such outstanding beautifull car, that I think there are many guys that would have a model. I have some questions: what scale do you like to made? I think about the need of rims and tires...And wy in metal, and not in resin New Pocher Alfa body - 8C2900 MM ? Do you have the data ready? Why not a curbside model? I am very interested!
