Alfa Romeo Tipo B/P3
« on: 20 August 2020, 05:33:09 pm »
Hi All! I've been following and pondering for a while now and have finally got started on a build of my own! I'm going for an Alfa Romeo P3 - on the basis that is looks pretty nice to my eye and (I reckon) seems to have simpler curves to it. Plan is to go along with the 'Stevenson model' - with a simple steel chassis built around a monocoque-style wooden body to hopefully add stiffness...

I'm already getting loads of help from Stef (thanks Stef!) but welcome any other suggestions or advice as I figure my way through this. Otherwise I look forward to learning loads and hopefully seeing some of you again at a meet soon.

I'll add some of my plans and stuff I've done below but basically have been trying to keep the weight low, and as far forward as possible while keeping the lovely long bonnet.

Congratulations on choosing the method of construction. They are immensely stiff and easy to build, and a great choice of inspiration car.

I'm with Graham regarding a build journal, please start one if you can, it'll be interesting to see a full Stevenson build.
