Here’s my current state of progress on my Alfa Romeo P-3 . Revival kits are no longer made, somewhat rare. But I do like them however challenging they are! The motor, so far...

That engine is looking good, did it come with the plug wires? or are those added? Great work so far, I've never been able to afford Revival kits. :(

Plug wires are included, I added paint.
I got these kits probably 45 years ago, when they were available and at a more reasonable price. Now they are rare! The kits are difficult, but they are worth doing well. I have started to create wire wheels for this model, more to come soon!

The kits were made in Italy. Revival is the company, and they made a number of kits, race cars. Ferrari’s, Alfa Romeo, Mercedes, probably more. I bought a few about 45 years ago. Now I don’t know if there are more about, maybe eBay?!
They are challenging kits to say the least. And at 1/20 scale which is a little unusual!
To me it seems like many think of Tamiya kits as all the rage, best kits out there. And they probably deserve that. But they are made with today’s technology, and they are expensive!
My challenge is to make a model that looks convincing through my efforts.
(Trying to figure out how to make the image size smaller, so I can upload photos. It may take me awhile!)

Here’s a photo of the box.
I should also add that Revival kits came in two versions; plastic wire wheels, and metal wire wheels. The Alfa that I’m working on is the plastic version, but I have figured out how to make metal wire wheels. It makes a huge difference!

There's one on EBAY, $250 bucks!!

Use XNView MP to manipulate your photos. It's free and one of the best programs for doing work with photos. I've been using it for over 15 years.
