I really like microcars (my brother and I have restored a few over the years) and when Schuco introduced a 1/18 Isocarro pickup I was so disappointed that they'd copied an example that used a kluged pickup box instead of the original sheet-metal version. I took a chance that the box could be removed (it could luckily) and I then made a facsimile of the original box using sheet styrene. I'll now be pleased to see a more accurate model of the Isocarro under the Xmas tree this year.
