Looking for the Alfa Romeo grill emblem

Postby 007jag » Wed Jul 12, 2017 9:01 pm

Hey Guys,
What I'm needing and hoping somebody might have is the Word's Alfa Romeo from the grill emblem off the old MPC and Pyro model kits.
Maybe one of the resin caster's here might be able to cast a copy of a model kit???

Every time I look on Evilbay for the model - the cost just isn't justified for only the emblem -- ( I don't want the car)

Now here is why I want it:
I have dream!!!! - sorry I got a little Ref Martin luther King Jr. there.

But I'm hoping to heavily kit bash a Revel military truck model into the Alfa Romeo race car transporter.
Like this:

I have Revel kit and some spare plastic sheet,,,, Just need that emblem!!!

Ambitious - Yes
Beyond my skill level - Yes
Probably come out looking goofy - Good chance!

But like I said - I have A Dream

So thanks for reading and if you can help, please let me know.
Best Regards,
Jack

That transporter is available from MMK...admittedly for a healthy price tag.

Thought you were after this but then read your question again...properly.

Hi Guys,
Thanks for looking dge467.
And Chappy what I'm wanting are the Words -- "alfa romeo" like you see on the old MPC and Pyro model kits
Like this:

Your idea of a decal might work if there was one - but that link did not seem to have it???
Anyone have another idea??
Thanks again guys,
Regards,
Jack

Ok gottcha now.
If you cant find what you are looking for, you could consider having it laser cut from plasticard , or even made with a 3d pen.
