I always envy my friends with E-types and Pagoda SL's for all the period model cars and plastic model kits available on the market. The offerings for Alfa Romeo 2000 Touring Spiders are few and far between. Hence, I was over the moon to find an absolute mint Alfa Romeo modeling kit, scale 1:32, made by Aurora in 1963.

PS I am aware of the 'collectibles' forum, but this is where most 2000 TS lovers meet....and the only difference between this car and our other cars is that this one gives you sticky rather than greasy fingers!

PS2 If you know of any other models, other than the well-known white 1:24 die-cast model from LEO models, then please let me know.

Tee Hee , I have exactly the same kit. If we document our builds lets see who makes the most at a Coys auction

I have (or had?) the same model. Unfortunately the tires cracked across the treads -then I suspect that my nephew may have played with it when he was much younger, until many pieces fell off and disappeared.

Ian,
Great idea! With 2000 Touring Spider hitting the €100k mark here in Europe, I settle for the 1/32 scale price for the model....See you at Coys!

Hi all, In the late 80's I picked up this kit from palmer plastics at the import car show in Carlisle Pa.The vender had three of them,I was going to buy all of them but was glad I didn't.It was a ill fitting 1/24 model that tested all of my skills to assemble it.The engine is a v8 and the hub caps look like their from some full size ford,but the dash is correct in every detail right down to the touring emblem!I also

Nothing wrong with a bit of artistic freedom when it comes to interpreting the lines of a car!....but this is overdoing it! Same for spooning in a V8!
