    This 1970s-era, 1/43 scale Fiat sedan was given to me in a box of random cars by a good friend, and I was immediately drawn to the gas generator (converts wood chips or charcoal briquets into a gaseous hydrocarbon fuel, common during WWII and in the Soviet Union) mounted on the rear of the car.

    I don't always buy 1/43, but this and the others were free, and this is an impressive, nicely done casting.

    Wow! Luv it!
    The image file limits have been reset. We have over-limit warnings for the past 3 months and I've had to lower the image file limits. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I know I've mentioned many times before, but it is very important to downsize images - doesn't matter if they are hosted elsewhere or here. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The new limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

        That is so awesome! Never seen anything like it. I can understand why you would have added this one to your collection as it is a very unique piece.

          There can't be too many models of such vehicles. Great piece.

            this reminds me of Genesis II or Planet Earth
            where one of the enemies use vehicles powered by the wood gas generator

              Oh wow, a diecast with a gassifier! I'd actually buy one of these if I could. What is the brand?

                  Very unique piece. I have a few Brumm's in the collection, they made some neat stuff. One of my favs is Ford's 999 racer.
