The Alfa Romeo series by Brooklin (pics).
If you never drove an Alfa Romeo you don’t know what a sport car is! I had an Alfa Romeo Duetto in the late 60’s (when I was a little younger...), also called “cuttlebone” for the original body style. It was a fantastic car.

The new partnership between FCA Heritage and Brooklin Models involves the creation of 1:43 scale models of the most prestigious cars housed in the Alfa Romeo Museum. The first car in the Alfa Romeo collection is the legendary 8C 2900 B Le Mans, an icon from the racing world of the 1930s. The bodywork was made by the Carrozzeria Touring of Milan, featuring extremely advanced aerodynamic lines and a maximum speed of over 220 km/h.

The 1:43 scale model was released a few months ago and now two “desk scale” models are presented by Brooklin. One in red and one in bare metal, which highlights the aerodynamic body design. Three more 1:43 models are planned this year:

Giulia TZ2, which should be released in August,

Giulietta Spider, planned for October,

Giulia Sprint GTA, for the end of the year.
