      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

The Fiat Topolino is the current model being worked on.  The hope is get this out next week.  This will be a 1:8 and 1:12 print to be available.  Images show the models side by side.  I'll post up some WIP's soon.

Some WIP on the 3d file of the Fiat. The exterior is about done with only the inner skin left to take care of.

I'd love to have a stock one in 1/25-1/24th!

My question about weather this model was going to be available from you in stock form was because you chose to show both versions in one of your photos. That stock one would make a very neat thing to load onto the back of a flatbed truck !

Yes, you could sell a bunch of the stock ones because we've never seen it in the right scale!   I'd be good for a 1/24 or 1/25 version too.

Are you working from dimensions, or eyeball?

I'm sure you're aware that there are significant discrepancies between the lines of the actual car and your "drag" body...perfectly acceptable for a model that's supposed to represent something like a one-piece fiberglass copy for racing...not acceptable for a model of the stock body.

Good questions.  Im taking the stock dimensions and keeping some stock body lines, but taking liberty to make it for a "Drag" body.  I have no intentions to represent this as a stock car.  My whole intention was to get this out for the big scale guys and let them create the chassis and drive-line.

My intention to show the stock version was only to give a comparison of the stock and drag version.  The stock version I am not planning to make only the drag version.

I also would love a stock body in 1/25 scale. Was searching for one last week.

Strange that no manufacture made the stock version.

I am sure the stock version would have limited sales appeal to most builders so your decision is understandable. Thanks for what you Are offering. Looks great.

That's exactly what I thought.

Thanks for the clarification, as that's exactly what I want.   :D
