You re-cast the new engine in metal from the old Protar master? Wow, nice job Cedric.

My wife's mother has also beaten this disease in 2018. I am very happy for you and your family. Congratulations to you both.

I love the 182 shape and color schemes on that bodywork. Someday I would also like to do this car, I have James' wonderful 1/20 kit in my stash.

Best regards,
AJ

Great to see you bringing a new project for our enjoyment!!
And greater yet for the continued health of your wife. We're all pulling for you and your family.

The Alfa is off to a rocket start, and coming together beautifully. Looking forward to seeing more of your progress.

Cheers,
Chris
