    I’ve had this nice Brianza 275 for many years, but recently moved it to a shelf which was unfortunately accessible to my 3 year old grandson. The fall broke the car in half, plus damage to roof as you see. I’ve always wanted to convert the model to an NART Spider, so maybe this is the chance.

    Can anyone recommend some modeler that would take on a project like that? Maybe color change to one of the actual NARTs.

    Alternatively I’m open to offers if someone would like to take this on themselves!

    Hi,
    the problem is very big.
    the car body must be completely disassembled, stripped etc. with the risk of damaging other photo-etchings (for example those of the headlights of the headlights). If, for example, I had to do it, I would ask for the same cost of mounting the kit.
    Sorry for my bad English !

    "I'm afraid we're gonna have to 'total' it, sir."

    Good luck with the project. Virtually anything can be fixed, given enough time, talent and resources.

    An alternative can be, satisfying, re-gluing all the pieces by inserting, first, reinforcements with brass rods then, small retouches with Modena yellow and a lot of finishing work with paper and abrasive paste.

    Consensus is: not economical to restore, or convert to NART! If anyone wants it for parts, make me an offer.
