I never intended to purchase this Maisto 1:18 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, it just sort of "happened". Darn those Ebays! I was originally shopping for a 1:18 Porsche 550 (which I also bought and will feature in the future) when this red beauty caught my eye. The shape of this Alfa reminds me of a sexier Dodge Viper, it's smaller Italian cousin if you will. The detail in this model is good for the price bracket, though panel gaps are less then desirable. Still, for the price I was more then happy to add this the collection. I wish I could hear Tony fire this one up for an Italian tune up!
