Italeri 68 Fiat 500F 1/12 scale

Recommended Posts

This is my first attempt at large scale. This was a very tough one for me to build. As hard as I tried I couldn’t get the steering assembly to work. I was able to get the front and rear springs to function though. I also gave up on getting the front seats to fold forward and I couldn’t figure out the cloth sunroof. The instructions are kinda vague in most steps also. I buggered up the drivers door assembly so I ordered a new one directly from Italeri  That was a bit of a challenge in itself I ended up calling them (in Italy) and ordered a complete driver door assembly and all they charged me was $8.00 for the shipping— no charge for the parts  I must say I was very impressed with the customer service  The lady even spoke fluent English  lol  All and all I really enjoyed the challenge of building this kit even with the issues I had  My kits are far from perfect and I build for pure fun and then they go in a case where hardly anyone sees them lol  

thanks for looking

Looks good!  A big scale Fiat isn't much bigger than a 1/24 Caddy is it?

As far as I can tell you did a great job with this it came out really well. I've been looking at this kit many times but not yet clicked the buy button. Were there any fitting issues with the body parts and chassis?

Everything fit together well. As I said earlier it’s just a matter of deciphering the instructions. I found myself doing a lot of test fitting before hand. I had the model sitting on a half wall separating the kitchen from the living room where I always put them upon completion to kinda show them off, hoping for some compliments. lol. As it was sitting there the more I looked at it the more pleased I was. It really has a lot of detail which really makes it stand out. It’s now in its glass case in the basement and on to the next model which is MPCs 1/8 scale Stingray bicycle that I got in the mail yesterday from Model Roundup. Another Big Boyz for me. A little easier on these old eyes than the 1/24 I’m used to
