1/18 model as mine
« on: April 29, 2009, 12:17:35 am »
I was looking around on ebay and came accross this litle beauty. I couldn't believe it. Exactly the same spec as mine (on order) but 1/18th size.
Funk white, 5 petals, red leather, red stripe.
Couldn't say no and bought it, brand new from Italy.
A500 + TMC + BMC + Yellowstuff + Motul RBF600 + KW V1 + OMP & Strut Braces - rear seats = esseesse+, + Change.

    And, I've just bought another one, same scale, to go with it, on a shelf, above my real A500 in the garage (when I finally get it).

    That's a big old lump! Love the look of all the clutter around it. Cool!

    I have that one too!  Although it's Funk and mine's gonna be Bossa Nova... did think about a repaint with tippex while I'm waiting  :whistle:

    ...not that I'm getting antsy or anything...  ::)

    Still can't find one in grey, maybe I need to hunt round on Italian e-bay.

    The 'new' is the 'Abarth 500 Bianca 1: 18' by Mondo Motors.

    The old is "Burago Fiat 500 Gold edition Abarth 1:18"

    If your looking for the new version, the seller on ebay is amaca3 on italian ebay
