|Fiat Abarth (new)
I thought that a nice companion to the old Fiat Abarth I built in 2009, I would do the new Fujimi Abarth. I decided to do it in a
different colour scheme than the original. I was also inspired by a 'Made in Europe' car theme award at Heritagecon 5 in Hamilton.
I did have trouble with the decals as they are very thin.
