It is with great pleasure that I had the honor of interviewing you today; Kevin D ‘Alenti

Yes, mostly American and Italian cars. Italian cars compared to my origins and americans that has always been my passion.
Kevin D’Alenti how can you describe the style you do?
They are miniature New Yorkers and mainly on the theme of America, I was born with this passion, I can not manage to explain it then I went to make this trip to New York and this passion grew even more. I am a fan…
How does your inspiration come to you to start a model?
I do not have any, it’s the felling I think, like a click where I say to myself: oh yes I would do well this scenery and I start to research real photos on the “net”, I realize a study to the scale model and I begin to try making it as real as possible according to my imagination.So begins a real work of editing, collage and painting.
What material and what products do you use?
I use everything from plastic, metal, wood, cardboard and all recovery materials. All that can be used to make my model as realistic as possible.
In color I use vallejo, Colle21 for glue, and pigments.
What do you think about Colle21 products?
I recommand it ! It’s good quality, it holds after a few seconds, it’s very important in the sets.
How long have you been using them?
From the beginning, before I started searching the net which was the best to start. Then, 4 years ago in an exhibition in Belgium in Mons I knew the products Colle21 after trying several brands and on I found myself very well with this brand. With the Colle21 which is an anaerobic pressure glue which allows me to be able to correctly position the two parts to be glued then I do the pressure and the bonding is optimum and in addition Colle21does not dry and I can use it until the end without losing the product. Then there are all the complementary products to make a collage at the top :the activator, the primer, the magicdust …
