One of Airfix's excellent 1970s new tool 1/32 cars (not to be confused with the Highway Pioneers style brass-era oldies, or the slot-car derived 60s racers)...

Left to right: the Airfix M K3 Magnette, another one of those mid-70s vintage sportsters (along with a Bugatti 35 and Vauxhall Prince Henry); the Alfa; and Matchbox's Aston Martin Ulster.

Now, on with a Jaguar SS100 and MG TD from Matchbox...

(Don't ask me why SmugMug is making these pictures different widths... I have no idea!)

best,

M.

That looks rather nice
and nicely photographed too

an optical dillusion - in the penultimate photo the front right wheel looks hollow

[smugmug does that to my photos too sometimes]

Excellent work, Matt. Alfa have been making handsome looking cars for a long time and makes for a great trio with the MG and Aston.
