The Dinos are stunning looking cars... And the 3p I have personal memories of - it was the first car I bought (in scale 1:1 that is...) when I was eighteen y o 8-) .... oh, those were good times! ;) I have one of those from Norev too, mine being orange though..

I'd be happy with that if I was to be limited to one Fiat!

Here is a Fiat that was my first car I ever bougth, back when I was eighteen. There is something special about your first own car. No matter how good or bad i was you will always look back at it as one of the best cars you ever had. And perhaps it was in the respect that it was packed with driving joy and sporty enough for an eighteen year old to think that it was quite cool...

Mine was in silver though - but I found this from Norev in orange which works well for me too.

Took this out of the cabinet today and made a re-shoot at it. Edited some and made a black and white version that I kind of like. Makes it a little "antique" with the sepia added. I thought I'd add it here in the Fiat thread since I didn't see this model posted here before.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Nice addition Jeff. I believe Starline do this one in more than one colour. I would like a metallic blue colour for the 130 Coupe.

I didn't realise how many Fiats I had here, until I started counting them. A mix of plain pix and dios.

Image
Fiat 508 Balilla (Starline) – as soon as I saw Johan's Balilla, I went looking for one!

Image
Fiat 8V Zagato (Starline) whizzing around the Caribbean looking for a cool drink.

Fiat 500 (Starline model) stopping for lunch in Bari.

Image
Fiat X19 (IXO)

Image
Fiat Topolino (IXO) with that Starline 500, again looking for food.


The numbers of Fiats here really starts to climb when you include Abarths, which I will...

Jamie, great selection of Fiats (Abarths).
You'll need to get the 1500 that BB has just won to join an exclusive club.

Funny you mention that, David. That red 1500 is exactly what I am looking for right now. I also want to buy a little Fiat 850 of the mid-60s as well, as I spent a bit of time as a kid in both cars, which belonged to our neighbour Mr Williamson, who was Fiat's sales manager in Australia through the 1960s. He was always bringing nice new Fiats home, and his wife ran around in the 850 for a couple of years ferrying us kids around occasionally (my mum didn't drive).

Superb Fiats/Abarths Jamie - love the brand too and one of the faster growing segments of my collection! Even better are the diorama style photos! Do you have a thread anywhere here on how you shoot those? Looks like fun!

In the 'Dioramas, figurines and customised models' section here at Scale 143 I have posted lots of these Photoshopped dios, one by one, but it might be time for me to go through the basics of how it's done, using pix to illustrate the steps. I'll work on the best way to do it and have a go at posting something soon.
