Fiat 500, jedan od prvih malih gradskih automobila proizveden u italijanskoj fabrici automobila Fiat 1957. godine.

Njegova proizvodnja trajala je do 1975 i za to vreme proizvedeno je preko tri miliona vozila kao i više verzija, ali mu je osnova uvek bila ista. Praktičan i jednostavan. Iako je imao 479 kubika i razvijao samo 13 ks, to nije smetalo da postane legenda na točkovima širom sveta i jedan od simobola “made in Italy”. Takođe, proizvođen je u više zemalja sa velikim uspehom. I danas se mogu videti mnogi primerci ovog mališana na skupovima veterana i ljubitelja starih vozila širom sveta.

Italeri-eva kolekcija vozila 1/12, kako ja umem da kažem zlatna serija, dobila je još jednog člana, Fiata 500 F. U prilično velikoj i atraktivnoj kutiji, sa ilustracijom vozila, nalazi se sedam  ramova sa svim onim delovima koji čine ovo prelepo vozilo i u stvarnosti. Karoserija, šasija, motor, donji deo, rezervoar, unutrašnjost, sve je urađeno besprekorno i potpuno autentično i u bojama u kojima je bilo u stvarnosti. Naravno ovo ne znači da nema potrebe farbati maketu. Branici, felne i ratkapne su potpuno sjajni i mišljenja sam da tu nema potrebe za farbanjem i poliranjem, uostalom vidi se na slici. Sastavnica je kao manji priručnik i sve je detaljno i lepo opisano. Crteži su jasni i pregledni. Ono sto je zanimljivo kod ove makete, je da su amortizeri dati kao prave metalne opruge naravno u razmeri 1/12, što se takođe može videti na fotografijama.

Italeri je za bojenje predvideo FS i svoje AP- Acrylic Paint boje pa ko šta voli. Biće ovo prava uživancija za sastavljanje. Izlet u razmeru 1/12 i još prekrasna maketa Fiat500F, zašto da ne. Preporučujem ovu maketu! MKNS – IPMS Srbija se zahvaljuje Italeri-u što nam je omogućio da zavirimo u kutiju njihove najnovije makete i prenesemo svoje impresije maketarima.

Fiat 500, one of the first small city cars produced in Italian factory Fiat in 1957. The production lasted until 1975 and with more than 3 million cars produced in multiple versions, with the base remaining the same. Practical and useful. Although having only 479 ccm and producing only 13 hp, it was not a problem for this car to become a legend on wheels around the world and “made in Italy” symbol. It was also licensed to production to different countries with success. Examples of this little fellow can still be seen on the oldtimer gatherings around the world.

Italeri’s collection of vehicles in 1/12 scale, as I would say, golden series, just got a new member, Fiat 500 F. In rather large and attractive box, with illustration of the vehicle, there are seven trees with all the parts of this magnificent vehicle. Car body, chassis, engine, lower parts, tank, interior, everything is manufactured flawlessly, authentically in paints that correspond the real car. Of course, this doesn’t mean that there is no need to paint the model. Fenders, rims, wheel covers are completely chromed and in my opinion there is no need for painting and polishing, as can be seen on photo. Instruction sheets are as a small manual with all the detail and nice explanations. Drawings are nice and clear. What is interesting is that the shock absorbers are given as real metal springs in 1/12 scale, which is also visible on photos. Italeri gave color instructions in FS and its own AP (acrylic paint) codes. This is going to be a great build. Excursion to the 1/12 scale with beautiful Fiat 500F model, why not. I recommend this model! MKNS-IPMS Serbia would like to thank Italeri for allowing us to take a look in the box of this newest model and to offer our insights to fellow modelers.
