Maximum Attack Modelli from Italy - Hi!

Post  Maximum Attack Modelli on Fri Sep 05, 2014 11:31 am

Hi, I' m Francesco from Italy.

First of all I' d like to thank reeft1 who sugguested me this forum.

I' m a collector of 1/43 rally models. I' m interested in every kind of rally, any period, any place. So I have in my collection a lot of different cars: from the older Targa Florio or Tour de France Auto ones, in example, to the modern WRCs.

I started collecting in 2004. I don' t have many pieces (About 150...) but I have a lot of 1:43 kits as I really love building them: Racing43, Arena Modelli, Barnini, Jemmpy, MiniRacing...
I also love improving some cheap 1:43 Altayas.

This is a pic of my only cabinet. I' ll show you some WIP of the kits I' m actually doing as soon as I can.
I hope my English is good... Embarassed

Welcome Francesco. This is a very dangerous place to be - we are all model addicts on here so you will be a very poor man from now on.
I too started with a few models and now it is a very large collection. The problem is there are too many models to collect. So many of us now specialise in certain types - e.g. a driver, a rally, a period, a type of car etc
Happy collecting and I like your photograph. Your english is excellent - much better than my Italian will ever be.
One of the problems some of us have is getting photographs from older rallies of rally cars so that we can make models. Hence if you know of any old rally photos you might post the details on here- I have recently done a collection of 1964 Monte Carlo cars for which it was difficult to get colour photos.
Happy Collecting and building.

Thanks very much Wink
Well, I' m already a poor man...I can' t stop buying kits! At least I know quite well this particular market so I usually don' t waste my money when people asks too much...
However, as I said before, I collect rally cars in general but I' m obviously focused on Italian cars. I also have a particular interest in all the cars that were entered in the Manx Rally or the Circuit of Ireland or in the '80s and '90s BRC: there are a lot of fantastic videos of this period on YouTube and the coverage was pure gold. I can' t find nothing like that about the Italian Championship...

Being a model builder I think it' s very important to find the right photos before starting a work. So I usually surf the net and my little book collection to find something useful.

About the Montecarlo Rally: rallyemontecarlo.unblog.fr
This is a very good site, with a lot of pics. You may find it interesting.

Francesco - welcome to the forum! Great collection - we have a wide variety of rally themes, and sizes! (1/43 and 1/18 are the two most popular although a recent member is working on 1/200!) Anyway, it's great to have you on board - i was very impressed with the detail in some of your builds - you are very patient!

Best wishes Paul aka Reeft1

It's a small world! When i was just starting off collecting about 8 years ago, I bought and made this exact kit. I'm certainly not in your league, but my skills have improved over the years so this is a little rough, but still has a very important place in my collection:

It' s nice to see that once built this kit is not so bad even if it' s quite old. It' s one of the best pieces in my kits collection.
By the way, being your first one is quite good. It only needs a better painting. But the rest fits very well.
If you want you can remove the paint and do it again. It shouldn' t be difficult to find all the decals.

Welcome aboard Francesco Looking forward to seeing some of your builds, always great to see some different drivers and cars, especially when they are kits. You wont be able to see CDMs collection for the moment as this is a paid membership forum. Basically to get full access you will need to become a paid member (it only costs £3 per year) but there there is a huge wealth of information/builds/collections in the members section.

Check out this link link for more info
