Luigi from the movie Car’s was a Fiat very similar to this kit. The likeness is why I wanted to build it! I shaved quite a bit of trim off of this kit giving it a cleaner look. I botched the original decals for the sides and since the kit was discontinued, at the time, I wasn’t able to order a new decal sheet. I still wanted the red stripes and medium blue alone would be a little boring. I decided to mask the body and sprayed the stripes.
The rest of the kit was finished without much hassle. I had an issue with the clearcoat on the engine hatch that cost me a bit of detail but overall it turned out great.
Also, notice the difference the use of a blackwash makes on the wheels.
