    Thanks Egon for the link.... 905 euro and 9,5 days to go for a self-destructing kit



    ! Maybe I will not start to build my own replica....

    Hi guys, as far as I understand there is a problem with the plastic which is used in this kit. However, on the box is says it is all metal and wood. Am I missing something? Not that I am tempted to throw that much money on a kit which is (in)famous on it's self destructing abilities, but I would like to know.

    It's all metal that perhaps will have some sort of plague later, unless treated with something.
    Ton didn't you started on a new homemade kit of this ?

    @Dominique: after that Arnoldo Pocher sold the remains of his model factory to Rivarossi he started a new model factory which was famous for its train models. After years he wanted to return to the market with a new big scale car ( the Itala) and he used the same metal alloy as he did for his trains....probably to weak to hold the weight if a 5 kilo model car ( see the pictures)

    @Egon: I took the box this afternoon from the stack ......and it looks like I am going to build it...however these prices of the original make me think
    Regards

    OK, I see. Thank you, Ton. It might be doable when the carrying structures are replaced by new made pieces in brass or cast in another alloy then.
    Best regards,
    Dominique.

    Correct Dominique. The maker of my replica solved it in this way
