Description* :
Rare & classicpocher1931 alfa romero 8c 2300 monza1:8 scalemodel kit an accurate reproduction of the 1931-1934 grand prix motor car that was entered for the first time in the 10 hour 1931 italian grand prix and came in first and second.The track where the race was held is known as monza and because of this the car was named monza.The 8c 2300 monza kit consists of pieces in brass, stainless steel, special high resistance plastic, steel, copper, rubber, etc.I purchased this set used years ago and never found the time to build it. It has been in climate controlled storage since my purchase and not even opened until i did so to take photos this morning. As you can see in the photos the engine has been partially assembled, numerous parts have been removed from the trees and hardware moved to film canisters and bags. As typically with these sets, several of the small plastic pocher bags have come off the inner flaps of the box. Completeness of the kit is difficult to verify, but looking at the care that was used in packing the kit i believe it to be quite complete. Some parts may not be sorted in separate bags as pocher originally had. The decals look a bit tired, but they are all there. The instructions appear to be a photocopy, but those are available online if needed.The great thing about these kits is that there's a huge pocher modeling community with numerous forums online. Transkits, or detail-up kits, are available including complete metal engine kits, more accurate tires, upholstery, etc. The large 1:8 scale makes the kits easier and more fun to add detail.The original box is included and has some shelf wear, but looks quite nice for its age sales and shipping within the contiguous lower 48 u.S. States onlypayment via paypalno returns thank you for looking and please check out my other listings!
