  1. for those who are not so good in italian: its about a 911 Fiat 500

    the story behind is quite simple: an italian mechanic put a porsche engine in an old fiat 500, i saw this on TV and wanted to make the same in scale.
    i decided not only to use the engine, but to transfer also the complete interior, suspension, wheels and tyres.
    and the rest was a lot of squeezing and cutting to make everything fit into the tiny fiat.
    the wheel-arches were completely made of putty and the engine has "lost" its turbo due to lack of space and for optical reasons.
    but later on the turbo will appear in a different project ...

    here is the original: http://www.oemmedi.it/en/500_porsche.htm

  3. Welcome DaSpeedinger, very nice job on the Merc. Did you paint it with a brush? It looks very good!

    thank u brizio. yes - its brushed. normally i do motorcycles, there not airbrushing or spraying is not really an issue. so for the few cars i made i did not start doing so.
