      I was doing some research for a 1/24 Alfa T33 Periscopico build and found the following exhaustive thread some may find interesting.

      This is the model I’m hoping to replicate.

      That is an unbelievable chronology of the Type 33!! I may never get to digest it all…. but I will try!! Thanks for sharing Bill.

      Good luck with the Periscopico car, can’t wait to see it. What body are you modifying?

      The body is an old Bandai kit from the 60’s. It is pretty basic with a flat fake interior and not much engine detail. Has a flip front and rear but I glued the pieces all together to make a more solid body. I wish I had taken a before photo because it looked barely salvageable. Lots of glue had to be sanded out and smoothed.

      Here’s what the box art looks like which is a lot nicer than the actual model.

      <p style=”text-align: left;”>Almost done just need to add the mirrors and headlights, clear coat and mount on the chassis.</p>
      Chassis is appropriately a Cox Magnesium chassis since the actual car has a magnesium tube chassis itself. Magnesium wheels as well so it is super light.
