Tamiya Fiat 500 1/24
The Fiat “Cinquecento” (Italian for five hundred) is the iconic people’s car of Italy during the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. It is to Italy what the Beetle is to Germany and the Mini to England. Like those classics, you still see them on the streets of their homeland. And like both of them, the reboot is pretty cool too.
To celebrate my wife’s Italian heritage, I built this back in 2016 and gave it to her as an anniversary present. (I think she was hoping for a real one.)
Now I have to build a Vespa.
