1907 Itala Pechino Parigi



Manufactured by Union. Stated to be 1/16 scale but appears to be closer to 1/20.

Very nice Bob.  I built this one many years ago and mistakenly painted it grey with red wheels.

mistakenly ???????

Are you sure ????

Am I mistaken, multiple gasoline tanks ?

nice work as always Bob.  Have you switched to this larger scale recently?

I would like to know more about the 1:1 car.  It looks like it was designed for long road trips ....or races.

hello,

I and another, fine fine ...
okay the color's different, but it looks good anyway.
To scale? you can even ask the Itala besides this place, the 1:16 he is I do not think so!

Instruction sheet

Hello Bob!
My name is Alejandro Castillo.
I recently recieved a Union itala Pechino Parigi 1907, but the instruction sheet was missing.
Searching the web, I came upon this forum and the picture of your work.
By any chance do you still have the instruction sheet for this model?
And if so, would it be posible for you to provide a copy for me?
I would be extremely gratefull.
I am in Guatemala, so via email I think it would be the best way.
My email is j.alejandrocastillo.p@gmail.com
Love what you did with this model.
Thanks and happy new year!
Alejandro

Hello and welcome to our forum Alejandro.

I believe I have a copy of these instructions.  I will try to find them and send you a copy.

Like Bob, I built this model many years ago and still have it.

I just searched through my file of instruction sheets and could not find the one for this car.  I will keep looking and let you know if I find it.

Meanwhile, maybe someone else has it?

Italia Pechino Patriogi

I like this build . Nice is an understatement . I admire Brass Era Cars as all the Veteran Cars . The awesomeness the Pioneers of the Automotive Industry is not lost on me .
  I would like to offer this as an answer to the question ; "are there extra Fuel Tanks ?" . In the day , yes you carried fuel in the Fuel Tank . Another tank for Oil as the Mills were as far from not being leakers as you could get . Some were of "Splash Lubrication" . Some had exposed Valve arrangements . These moving parts were lubricated being moving parts . The oil supply had loss built in to the process . These Engines did not need Crankcase Ventilation Systems . The engines were sealed as far as Intake , Combustion and Exhaust only seen as needed . The loss / excess filled the Environment .
 Plus , you might have noticed the Carbide Lights . Two different chemicals in tanks mixing create the Acetylene for the fire in the lamps .

Alejandro,

I found my copy of the instructions. I will read my scanner instructions again and get it to you in one or two days. It is eight pages with small and intricate diagrams. It is in Japanese with some English words. The diagrams are quite and good more than sufficient for an experienced modeler.

Welcome to the Forum. Looking forward to seeing some of you modeling. 909tomk contacted me and said you needed these. I only look at the Fourm on occasion.

Yours, Bob Chayer

Gasguy, with a moniker like that, you should appreciate a vehicle with THREE gas tanks. My 1968 Chevrolet pickup has three 20 gallon tanks, one in the cab and one on each side of the bed adjacent to the cab.

909tomk,  I have started on some larger scale models. I have many 1/25 scale; only 1927 and earlier. I have done some 1/20 and 1/16 but only those I really like.

Super!!!

Bob, you just made my day. Although it was very good, you msj was like the cherry on top, je je je... Thank you so much for taking the time to do this.
Right now I have to give the finishing touches of a Enzo Ferrari, so as soon as I finish it, I`ll share some pics with you guys.
Thanks again and Happy New Year!
Sincerely,

Hello, 909tomk!
Just wanted to thank you for getting in touch with Bob, regarding the instruction sheet for the Itala.
Thank you so much, and hope you have a Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you Alejandro. I am glad you have joined us and look forward to your model projects.

This is a small group of guys who enjoy each other and encourage each other.  You should fit right in.

Thanks, Your request gave me the opportunity to talk to Bob again.  He is one of our original members and keeps all of his old instruction sheets.  Even better, he can find them.  ha ha  Maybe 2014 is a good year for me to organize my stuff a little better?  I think Bob has labelled all his builds so that someone else can find out what all the models are.  Another project for the new year....if I can remember what all of my builds are?
Bobchayer

Ale1, I sent you the eight pages of instructions. It is a large file. Please let me know if they have arrived and if  they are good enough for your use.

Happy New Year!
