  • Seat 600

    I bought four of these cars for $50 and three of the Abarths for $60. A good deal? Maybe, but I was in for a surprise. They are fun, but that was not the surprise. The chassis with slight mods fit beatifully under an Airfix AH Sprite body.

    Cute car. I will post pictures later.

    I bought seven Abarths and Seat 600s. Here is what of interest - the motors vary greatly in speed and power. I gave one to a wonderful man but did not check his but I hope it is as good as this last one I dug out and not like the other one I have tested so far. I find it remarkable that they vary so much. The first was like an NC-1 or Artin but this one is almost like an NC-2. Go figure. I will buy more of the Seats (the Abarths are gone according to the lady at FW).

      Sprite

      The body is drying and when done I will post a picture. They are so small they virtually take no paint.

      I have to get a driver that looks right.

        Re: Sprite

        I used one of the Fly replacement drivers. Took him off at the waist and glued him to the tea tray interior I put in.

          See how nicely the Seat 600 chassis fits under the AH Sprite by Airfix!

              I finally found a picture of one running in HP and have to drop the driver a little lower.

                  The problem is that I only have one picture and very little of the guy sticks up. Does anyone have a picture of an SCCA Sprite?

                      They are about the same height as the picture I found. I was worried that I would go to far the other way. I know now how much to chop off. Thanks.

                          Rad Trax had the Seat 600s at 4 for $50 and FW had the Abarths at $19.99 each. The only one left is at Rad Trax: REPROTEC SEAT (FIAT) 600 F.C. BARCELONA CENTENNIAL for $15.99. Fantasy World is out of stock.
