Isetta

Recommended Posts

My 6th model. The most fun of any model so far.  Next will be the Bentley Blower.

First use of Alclad (love the stuff).  First successful two tone.

The fit of Revell Germany models is just perfect.

HA! Check that out! I LOVE it! :wub:

This looks to be the 1:12 scale is it not? Nevertheless, a very tiny model for that scale!

Wow, superb build David! Having been born just after WW2 I was getting into cars about the age of seven and there were a lot of these and Messerschmitt bubble cars in the UK. The way that they were parked facing the pavement helped get out onto the pathway and two, you could get two in an ordinary parking space, as you can now with the Smart car.

The Messerschmitt top was made from the fighter aircraft canopy.

Both the Isetta and messerschmitt were powered by single cylinder two stroke motorcycle engines, noisy and smoky!

I just bought a messerschmitt (gunze). I really like the old quirky cars.I'm going to build a Bentley Blower next.  I've also recently bought a Fiat Mefistofele (Italeri). I'm working up th courage to build it.

Didn't even know someone made a kit of that little bugger.  Very cool build.

BTW, that's a great job.  One of your builds?  Who produced that kit?  You've given me an idea for color choice on the one I bought.

Erkle would be proud

Do they make an LS swap for this?

not an LS, but will these do?
