So I got another one of those 1/24 models by Fabbri from the collection Quattroruote magazine put out in Italy. This one is the microcartastic Fiat 600 Multipla, complete with opening bonnet and front doors:









Now here\'s the thing about this one - so far, all the models I\'ve bought have just been the models by themselves, without the book they\'re packaged with at the Italian newsagents. However, this Fiat came with the book, which I hadn\'t seen before. Usually, the partwork text is just loose-leafs that tey give you a binder to keep them in or just a magazine. But this is a proper hardback book, with some very nice illustrations and reproductions of contemporary road tests. I can\'t vouch for how good the text is yet, because it\'s all in Italian, so it\'ll take me a while to read, but it seems accurrate, covering the Mulitpla, special-bodied Multiplas, the 600T and with a little addenda about the moden multipla.

Given that these retailed for 20 Euros, I think that\'s pretty good value for money (don\'t ask how much I wound up paying to have this posted to the UK!!!)

Fantastic little car and great detailing too. The book looks very informative and I am sure is loaded with info on the car. I too would like to know where these are available. Can\'t imagine with it would cost me to have it shipped to Canada though. LOL

The model of the 600 Multipla comes in several colours too.

If you\'re a Roger Moore \'The Saint\' fan you\'ll undoubtably recognise this small van as the taxi used in the early series by Simon Templar\'s buddy in Italy.

Thanks everyone - unfortunately there\'s nowhere online except eBay to buy these and this is one of the more sought-after models from the Quattroruote collection, so it\'s gotten hard to find even on there!
