      It is not my intent to start this "New" project right away,(I have as of yet to put two Model A parts together) but in collecting references I noticed a detail I thought I should share.

      I do not know if this is unique or if it is a feature common to all the 8C engine blocks? -The hollow access on the underside of the motor mounts that extend to the chassis rails?

    For Jens and Jo and Stompin, I think we need to pool our resources, regarding our MONZA projects.

    Hi again
    I never did a Pocher model so cant realy make any comment on them but some impressive builds is seen here. I like all the selfconstructions and further improvements to the kits. Nice work.
    I understand the frustration about how is the correct way to build a .. lets say a Monza .. because every picture of a car seems to be a bit different from the last one we Saw. Well... we are quite right. They are different !! I have all the Simon More books plus loads of other portfolio’s etc and the cars are old beeing restored a bit differently from what they looked like from the factory. There are several coachbuilders in play too .
    I have just gone through 10 portfolio’s I gathered from the net and Surprise !! I see 10 bids on how a Monza looks like. The easey thing to do to go around this confusion is to build a specific chassis number as a model.
    Gerald build a Monza that doesnt Seem to exist and nobody Seem to have any problems with that as it became a beautyfull model.
    If you gus doesnt want to build a specific chassis number ... it might have been changed during its lifetime so you can build it as it came from the factory or as it stands today just build a Monza as you like it because there is no answer to the right way to build a Monza as long as you dont compromise the obvious . No Corvette engines and Jaguar differentials please !! ;)
    But They are really all a tiny bit different.
    I know this might not be what you want to hear but I simply cant explain it better !
    Happy Building.

    Hello hello, has anyone seen the New ITALERI 1/12th scale MONZA kit?

    I did not know of this until now, and it is to be released in November!

    Preview images look good for the body, but the engine has some of the same omissions as does the 50 year old POCHER kit!

    Can’t see the underside of the fuel tank

    More info to be found on ITALERI website

    Intake manifold looks to be correct

    Radiator looks sort of correct

    Front end of crankcase is fixable

    Engine “Wing mounts” are more of a correct shape than POCHER , but like the POCHER kit, it is missing something?

    No cooling vent to transmission bell, but it does have the vent on the hood

    No pass thru for throttle linkage

    I'm just building the Italeri kit, and it's OK. Just OK - not great for a new tooling really compared to Tamiya ALFA ROMEO 8C 2300 ENGINE MODEL - 1/4th SCALE for example.

    Here's where I'm up to with it after a fair bit of scratch building. To be honest I was too ashamed to post it looking at some of the amazing work on this site, but here it is anyway:-

    Oh no! There is never shame!

    And- thank you for sharing!

    That kit could be better, but, it is an improvement over the Pocher kits!

    It’s too bad that it’s not better, but it does get several things right that the Pocher people got wrong.

    Please post more, we all benefit from the free exchange of info and experiences.

    Nick, as I'm not familiar with the kits available from the stores, I just can say that your model is good looking!
    We all have to begin some day and the skill can just improve!
    Merry Christmas!

    OK thanks for the support, I’ll start a new thread if there is interest in the kit.
    Regards,

    Please do! I’m very interested!

    For instance, How did they shape the intake manifolds, and the steering box stand-offs, on the right engine mount, how does that whole area look?

    The radiator, do they have it at 80 degree
    or 90?

    The fuel tank, on its underside, are there “fins” extending the surfaces of the sides?

    And finally, on or in the left and right engine mounts, did the folks at ITALERI, did they include the pass- through holes (front to back), and the hollows on the bottom?

    Like I said, I’m very interested!

    I have been offline for a while, all my responses for months now, have been by use of my phone, very tedious!

    But I hope to be posting some progress pics soon!

    Merry Christmas!

    I hear you about posting things here. I've been working on AMT ALFA ROMEO 8C 2300 ENGINE MODEL - 1/4th SCALE 's 1/12 Cord on and off, but it feels a little like bringing a paint by numbers picture into the Louvre.
