If you can crank out large numbers, see if you can sell it on ebay India/snapdeal etc
The body work is entirely made of thermocol.detailings like glass area,grille,wheel design,etc are made using paper.i think things will be more clear when i can come up with the ecosport's work in progress pictures.
and the time,it is not about how many hours.it is about how many days!!
thats exactly the reason why these are not for sale

Would love to see more such creations.
thank you for your suggestion and appreciation.i'd love to hear more from you!

A hand crafted FIAT, just wow! Seeing such thing for the first time.

Just a suggestion, if you could add lines to show the car doors, hood and fuel tank cover then it will be much more realistic.

It will be great if you could share pics of the model step by step when you make these models. It will be a learning experience for us. What you say?

Eagerly waiting for EcoSport model now.

Exceptional talent! Attention to detail is superb brother. I actually liked both of them and would like to make a special mention about the alloys. Those alloys need very precise detailing which you have mastered to perfection. You should begin a proper tutorial on this soon.

Fantastic effort!!

Thanks

I have already tried adding lines to indicate the door panels, but it is quite risky.Even a minute irregularity in the line ruins the look of the entire product.

I don't have the step by step pictures of the Fiats.I will add the pictures of the Ecosport soon.

Thank you for your suggestion.

Thank you for your compliment

Actually there is nothing much to learn about this.All you need is plenty of time and patience. And if you have some basic skills in drawing,it would be just perfect!!

I will add the step by step pictures of a model soon.I think things will be more clear then.

You have an extraordinary patience!

Awesome work buddy! the grills on the linea look really tough to paint, and also the abarth logo! i wonder how you managed to do that!

Suggestion: add a thin line to show the door-seams, and it would look even better.

anyways, rated the thread 5 stars, and eagerly waiting for the next scale model.

They look great!
BTW if you blur the picture a bit, apply some effects, they will look totally real !
How about a range rover or a Cadillac escalade? They will look awesome because of their boxy designs.

Hey.
Amazing talent. This needs hell lot of patience and detailing. Detailing and proportion would obviously increase with experience and many more models but really good work done. Appreciate every bit of it. Keep up the good work and keep us impressed with many more models and your true love with the fiats can be seen.
Cheers!

Dude, fantastic!

Working with thermocal is not at all easy, I have tried it long time back, gave up.

Just one wish,please make the headlights a bit smaller on linea, they look slightly larger in proportion to the car.

Please keep it up and do share some tips on how to do it.
Once again -THANKS FOR SHARING

Thank you guys, for all your feedback and suggestions.
Here comes the next one: The 1:18 Ford Ecosport.
Hats off to the Ecosport's design team. It gave me such a tough time marking up all those lines and details.
