What I really like about this model is the fact that it has been based on a Alfa Romeo – possibly a 1750 but more akin to a Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA 1600.
it is a very cool model – and all very Italian as well – the Papal white works well. Add the religious overtones on the front grill, and the wording on the tyres, it is all very tongue in cheek.
Complimented by the Popemobile, this is a good little set we have here, however to the child, I am not sure if this will be a go-er TBH. I am not sure how they will relate to the character, but yet with many of these actual castings it seems destined to be aimed squarely at the collector.
