      Some of you may know the work of Portuguese large-scale Mercedes builder Alberto de Oliveira, who passed away last year at 85, and he was building until the end. For those who don't, I thought you'd like to see some of his work. Everything was scratch-built using wooden bucks and metal, some of it simply upsized from existing kits, and he had a friend with Mercedes who supplied him with vast amounts of reference. He also was a collector of zillions of Mercedes diecasts. The web pages are in Portuguese, but you can see his accomplishments in the images.

    Wow! I don't really know any modellers, apart from Gerald Wingrove and the guys on the forum, but I always love to see more scratchbuilts, I love it!

    Here's some further information from Alberto's son, Paulo, who has been seeking to sell his father's collection (about 90,000 euros). Text in English.

    This is real first rate stuff. I've heard the name but never saw the work. I'm thoroughly impressed. I wish I had a bucket full of cash to buy some.

    I'm sorry, but I have no idea what this Lamborghini thing has to do with Alberto de Oliveira, who is dead.

    I wonder if there's something going on with the forum. It took me a couple of tries to post the correct image in my original post, which defaulted to a concept Jaguar that I never posted instead of the new image that you see in post #1.

    As far as I know, Alberto never had anything to do with a Lamborghini model.
