      Hello guys

      I bought this Monza already started a few years ago at a reasonable price.
      it's by seeing the many creations of brass on this forum that I wanted to try the adventure.

      (pardon me for the language approximations because I don't speak english and I use google translate to communicate with you...)

    Maybe because it is a model that is easily found and at reasonable prices, so a good base to get started in large scales ...

    Thank you Ken for your encouragement. I bought your book a few years ago, it is a great source of inspiration and I continue to learn thanks to it, even if the English language is a difficulty for me.


    I started making the oil tank.

    to make the 2 blanks I made a small hardwood press (pear tree Alfa Monza 1/8 brass rolling chassis ( base Pocher ) ) in 3 parts
    in front of the brass piece to work
