1927 Fiat 806 (Restored old build)
Posted by Ergo Proxy on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 9:03 PM

This is an original Protar metal kit that I built around '83 or '84. Last year I gave it a good clean up and a little restoration after I fount out that Italeri was now making them in plastic. I contacted them to get some parts that were missing or damaged. It's 1/12 scale.

Too many models to build in a lifetime.

What a machine!  And what a build!  Just beautiful, she looks amazing.  Is that a V12?  Cheers

Awesome job of a very interesting car. I don't know of this car, but I am quite intrigued. Going to have to google this thing up. The clean-up looks great, and I wonder if the years since you built it have added a bit of patina. It looks very authentic and displays really well.

At the size 1/12th scale, it can be the focal point of the entire room!

Superb finish! I've seen these race at the Silverstone Racing Circuit just up the road, in classic events.
