Made from die-cast metal and prefinished to a superb standard, all the components are assembled with nuts and bolts or screws, as much like the original car as possible. The bonnet and boot open to reveal the mechanical details, and the model has working suspension, steering and electrics.
Despite the small size of the car, it was even successfully paired with a specially designed Niewiadów N126 caravan – which is modelled in the same scale. It was a testament to the little engine that it could cope with loads like these. Over time, the original 594cc unit was bored out to 652cc, then 704cc, with a consequent increase in power.

Launched in 1972, the 126 was an update on Fiat's popular 500 city/economy car. Powered by a small, rear-mounted twin-cylinder engine, it had similar dimensions to Britain's iconic Mini, and sold almost as well, reaching over 4.5 million before it was discontinued in 2000.
