Hello

 

here my last build the FIAT 131 ABARTH from Italeri. 

It is a old ESCI Kit reboxed by Revell and now release by Italeri with new decals printed by Cartograph.

The best are the new decals, the body is ok.

Issues: the hole powertrain is very bad, the differential is over sized and the motor looks like from a russian traktor. Leave the front hood closed!

The clear part for the windows is very thick and has a wavy pattern, The headlights are oversized and hard to fix at the radiatorgrille.

 

I would recommend it only as a slot car!

I have changed the tail lights as  from the late model "Supermirafiori"

In the late 80 I drove 2 "Mirafiori Sport"

Hope it helps if you want to buy this Kit.

 

Cheers

I know very well, I am building also the Lancia Montecarlo Gr 5 which is very problematic.

It has a lot of fine details. 

But but in contrast to this poor FIAT, the motor is very well done!

As an old fiat, the engine was probably an old tractor design!

Great build!

The Fiat Twin-Cam was designed by Aurelio Lampredi, whose CV included a number of Grand Prix winning engines for Ferrari, nothing to do with tractors :)

I did not refer to the real FIAT TC engine, but to the motor as designed in the model - it looks really worse!
