Additional information received from Gabriel Oneglia

PIC-R / PYE-R / MDC-R (Some models also available in kit-form)

May 2006: We have had a request for more information regarding the brass Fiat models presented by Tecnotren in 1992/93 on the site for quite a while, and have received an e-mail and even a scanned copy of a flyer from Gabriel Oneglia regarding these and other Tecnotren models just this week. 

Rumour said Tecnotren ended production some years ago, probably in 2004, and sold all moulds to another Italian manufacturer, Model IV Factory. This is, however, not certain. The magazine in which this news was published (Modelli Auto , issue n° 75 of Jan./Feb. 2006) mentions this in an article about Model IV Factory but the spelling of the company name is a little different – TecnoTren.

The following models are/were (?) available:

* Fiat never made a true cabrio version of an 1100 (of any model). Several cabrio models were made by contemporary bodybuilders such as Bertone, Monterosa and others, but they were very different from the standard saloon model, mainly because they had only 2 doors. This model could be the complete rolling - opening soft roof version of the Fiat 508 C 'Balilla' 1100, a model which existed, (somewhat identical to the 1938 Opel Olympia – Busch 41110) but this was a special verson which was intended as a staff and press service car for Italian cycle races like the Giro d’Italia, Milano – Sanremo, etc.). Another interesting, true full cabrio body style version, was a military one, but this version only has 2 doors as well.
** these two models were made after the very colorful racing versions of the Fiat 600 Berlina, upgraded by Abarth, an official Fiat racing preparator in Turin (maybe Tecnotren reproduced the rear engine bonnet open ? This was, and still is, very 'Abarth style').
*** this is the panel van version of the Fiat. The real car was also produced with lateral windows, but only for commercial and utility use.
