Finished it up to-day.

Not a bad kit and with a bit more work could really good.

Poor sprue attatchment points on chrome work, wipers on a non chrome tree!!, headlight cover lenses are not a great fit although this was I think exacerbated a little by me foiling the rims, front side indicators look oversized, grille was chromed and should be alluminium. Bonnet sits on the top of the air filter preventing it sitting flush.

Great wire wheels and very nicely fitting door handles and boot lid hinges.

With the little niggles you mention it's still turned out to be a really nice looking Model mate

The colour is spot on and really well laid down ... wheels look smeggin' great .... chrome looks well swish and not "over tacky" like some you see.

Sometimes the foil makes the "edge" of the piece look over sized. i.e around the windows ... it's not bad at all on this but on some models there's too much and the 1:1 size of the strip would be about two inches .... better to just use a fine brush methinks.


Now we'll just wait and see what Andy thinks of your finished "Fiat" lol

Great looking build, Al. Love the color and the chrome wires.

As far as the fit of the bonnet, just display it opened up.

Well done. Yellow is hard to get to cover well, you did it. Wipers not on the chrome tree? That sounds like a Trumpeter kit.

Hi Al,

This is one really, really sweet Fiat Sir, that colour is stunning and your BMF work really finishes her off...

Fabulous slick paint job.  Builders these days really have gotten things better.  Absolutely right on nice delicate door handles and fine wire wheels too.  Sure is strange that they had air cleaner hit underside of hood (bonnet).  Classic lines of the era.

The wheels are just about the best styrene wire wheels I have ever come across Colin.

Very nice again Al. The kit does have a few flaws but looks to be a pretty good kit as a base if someone was inclined to put the work into it. Awesome paint and BMF job!
