Fiat 500 Abarth - Fujimi 1/24

I built this for my ex because she liked the Fiat Abarth 500. It's a pretty cool little city car. It was kind of a pain in the ass, I kept having issues with paint, but it turned out ok in the end. I used aftermarket resin wheels because the kit wheels were way undersized. I also used some photoetch bits to give it a little extra detail, brakes, emblems. Overall it's a pretty straight build. Oh.. the plates.. well, her current car has personalized plates that reads "RAW LOVE" (it's complicated).. so I figured i'd give it some Euro plates to match. I've since updated the plates, but i'm too lazy to re-shoot it.. *shrug*
