Fiat Topolino!

Viesti Kirjoittaja Tor Henning » 01.04.2008 11.54

One of my ongoing projects is this little italian. It is actually Tapani, and Juha who have given me the inspiration to start such a project. I can't buy everything unik in resin, some stuff I just have to make myself. I will make it all stock, and the only parts I had was the resin reissue of the old Revell Parts pack body, and hood.
I started with glueing on some Revell Beetle fenders. The front fenders fitted very well, but I had tomake some cuts in the rear wheelopenings, alowing them to be bended, and fitted to the body.
I choosed to overdo the total width, and have insted added material on the undeside of the fenders, allowing me to narrow them, and forming them. It has been a lot of testing and fileing up front to come to this point.

Say Hi to Futten if you see him.

Wow... Well lol, now I have seen where we can use those old Revell beetles lol... ;)

Welcome aboard, our Norwegian friend. :) It's very nice to see that our little community inspires and gets people all over the scandinavia to get along with us to our pleasant way with plastic, styrene and some glue and tools...

I also realized that You had added me to Your friend list on Fotki, nice, lol, thanks. :) There are a collection of pictures of very crappy models, mostly as those have been on the time I've located those, or even my very own old builds. Lately there has been added some of my current works too, like "Transit" lol. :)

Well yeah, enough blabla from me in a short period, but hey, we'll keep in touch. One more time, welcome to our forums, mate. :)

Slow progress with this one. I'm using most of the modelling time on my Anglia, '80 Cadillac and '33 Chevy P/U for the moment. Hope they will be finished to "Grevens Glue Galore"

I had to remove the grill, cause I couldn't get it centered. Don't like it, cause now I have to scratchbuild it. Just like everything else with this project.
Olle!! This will not be a rod!! :D
