Italian Job Alfa

Another kit from Pendle, this time the Alfa Romeo Guilia Ti Super used by the police in the original Italian Job film.

I wanted the car to run on Andy's digital layout so as well as the chip, I had to wire up a bridge rectifier (four diodes in a particular configuration) to get the correct power to the flashing blue LED I bought for the roof.

I painted the interior to match the film, including the shades on the passenger.

And the body was primed in grey before a test fitting.

I sprayed the body a pretty good match for the green and painted up the lights, grille and bumper, as well as a tiny Alfa Romeo badge.

Final additions were the number plates.

Ready to chase some Minis...
