    The radiator !
    Its very slightly angled almost upright. These cars were all individuals and can vary Slightly.
    Gerald always Said you need to capture the image the best you can. There is no such thing as a 100% scalemodel and all those cars is slightly diffent. I would go for the factory drawing.
    I think it was you asking about the fuel tank on the Monza. Again the construction varies a bit but Inside the bodywork is a smaller tank ..(it might be what you asked )?
    The tank is positioned over the Axel and across the car.

    Try search for a New Zealander building a Monza in his Shed. Its quite amazing what he does and there is pictures of how he builds radiator and fuel tank. I tried to place a link but it went to only a small amount of the article.
    Its a rebuild but my guess is its how that car was build originally.
    Those Kiwis have it under control. Another Newzealander builds perfect replicas of the Ferrari 250 GTO also in his shed. They are really fine and it takes a specialist to see that its not the Real deal.
    I dont know it might be the wonderfull nature fueling them on the way to their fantastic builds. ... ore the Haka ;)

    Thank you for your suggestions! I am aware of the fine work being done there, New Zealand, and the workshops of Jim Stokes in England. PURSANG in Argentina, work almost intuitively ?

    My question regarding the fuel tank, is about the “Wings”? (That’s what we’re calling them) If you look through some of my postings you’ll see what I’m talking about. Two extensions to the sides of the fuel tank that appear on many of the Monza cars, that create a graceful mystery.

    I have read several times of extra fuel tanks used by Enzo Ferrari when he was an Alfa driver, do these skirts hide the use of those suplimental tanks?


    More research is needed


    Thanks for the help!

    Wings?! Im completely lost here might be translation problems and I cant find your posts explaining. But :
    Is it the small “plates” .. pieces of the bodywork between the backend and the chassis you Call Wings or is it under the “boattail” ? I have an archive with all the Monzas and Im a bit lost. Im even building a 2300 8cMonza right now ..I choose a specific chassis number to not build some mix .
    If wings is not what I tried to explain please give me a specific chassis number and I will look it up !
    Now you got me interested with those mystery “Wings”.
    I only know about wings on much later models to ad downforce !

    Perhaps “wings” confuses the subject. Not fenders. And not the semi horizontal panels that lay between the body and chassis rails. But the extensions of the surface of the fuel tank. They lay on the fuel tank very much like a saddle blanket.

    I’m sorry but I am using my phone right now as my computer is on strike!


    The surface of the Monza fuel tanks appears to be extended down along it’s sides, below the chassis.

    Check JoNZ’s Alfa build, I believe we’ve been uploading pictures there.


    One picture is looking up at the boat-tail while the car is on a lift. You’ll see what I’m talking about there.

    Ok. Thanks I know exactly what you are talking about now and I could Call that “Wings” Too ..
    on the Monza by Zagota 2211112 those fins /wings might just be interprettet by Pocher like we see.
    In my picture its the “ boattail” sides extended downwards . I will explore a bit more though.. do you think the Pocher kit could be by Zagota ?

    No the Pocher kit does not have these.

    And not all Monza’s either?

    The one at the Simione Museum doesn’t have them.

    The “new” cars made by Stokes and PURSANG do.

    I hear you.
    The pict I send you where we see them was from an udside down Alfa build by coachbuilder Zagota !
    I would ask at the Simione museum or give PurSang a Call.

    Thank you for the picture! May I ask which book?

    Have you read the three volume Simon Moore book(s)?

    I was hoping for more information useful to modelers.

    Yes being able to read the dimensions to the chassis (finally!), is a big plus! (But I always want more)

    Hello Jens, have you ever seen the extra fuel tanks that Ferrari had installed?

    The one picture in the Simon Moore monster shows a silhouette that spans from chassis rail to chassis rail?

    Hung low it was probably prone to leaks from stones and such.

    Just wondering?
