My Name is Michael and i am from Austria. I have got a few (about 10) MiniZ's
all built with unusual bodies.

Lets begin with my favourites:
Since i love old racing cars and i am a big Alfa Romeo Fan i had to build
an Alfa Romeo GTA Junior on a MiniZ.
Based on the static kit Tamiya Alfa Romeo Guilia Sprint built the car on a
MiniZ MR03 with a PN V7 motor mount.
Since the GTA Junior is much wider than the Tamiya kit, i crafted the
fenders out of Resine and putty.
The front is hardend with gfk inlayes and it's a perfect racing car.
Wheelbase is 97mm and wide is 75mm.

Here are some pics:

This is Rainer Matschke's Alfa Romeo GTA junior, which raced the German Touringcarchampionship in 1972.

thanks, the body is mounted just like the MiniZ's.
I used the same body clips. For the front mount i cutted
it's original clip, so that it will fit the Alfa body.

rims are from Porsche 934 and are painted.
The tires are ortmann slottires and they look
much more scale than the originales and have
very much grip.
