Classic Fiat 500 converted to pickup by coachbuilder.  About 500 were produced in this style.  Started with the Tamiya's excellent kit, cutting the body in half just behind the doors.  The wheel base needed to be stretched, using sheet plastic for the body and a variety of plastic stock for the chassis.  Plastic stock of various kinds was also used for the pickup bed.  The crates were plastic stock as well.  The reject wine bottles were made by spinning a master on a lathe, clear coating it to a shine, then molding/casing a bunch.  A new gang mold was made, then clear resin tinted green was poured.  The crates say "Garbage" and "reject" in Italian.

  Really well done Thomas. It's interesting that the Coachbuilder chose to "Suicide" the Doors!
