    The Fiat 508 lazik 1:25 from GPM is my latest model.
    I might have made a mistake with this one since it is a difficult model, but I'm going to give it a try anyway after I have finished my other projects.
    The book have 12 pages. Instruktions are in Polish,German and English

    Print seems to be very good, with colour on the backside of the parts.

    The drawn instructios seems also very good.There are 6 pages of drawn instructions.

    There is also a set of etched parts for the car.

    ummmm yikes!

    I'm not a very big fan of this model. I guess you should have started this one before the Ford and Kubel.

    Is it common for some level 3 kits to have etched parts???

    LOL I don't think this one had been the right one for a starter model.....The result would have been terrible.
    I chose the model because I wanted to give it a try....but a cat3 model is maybe more that I can handle.I have 5 models I have to build before the Fiat, so I hope I have got some more experience and skills in that time.
    It's not common with etched parts for cat3 models, but you can find some kits for several models, both at GPM and Draf.

    Just you giving a little preview of the Fiat makes me want to order it!
    It is a really nice looking model.

    From what I have seen of your skills so far Johnny, I think you can handle this build. You are very detailed and creative with your models and they turn out so well.
    If you want to build a few others first though, I can understand.
    It doesn't really matter to me what you build, I just like to watch you at work.
    Your builds have all been well done and well documented and a pleasure to be a part of. If it is this one or another one, I will be enjoying it!

    Go ahead and get it Russel!

    I have the two Horchs to build before the Fiat, it would have been nice if we could build the same model!

    I just received mine in the mail today and it did not come with etched parts like yours.
    Maybe I ordered from the wrong people. :???:

    Russell!
    You have to order the etched parts separately from GPM

    I thought it was awful cheap to have the etch parts included! I guess that was my first clue.
    I looked at GPM and the etched parts are nice but cost about the same as the model.
    I think I will just build the model the way it is and save my money for another model.
