Lada 1200 (1970) - DeAgostini/IST Models

      Lada 1200, sau VAZ 2101 "Zhiguli", cum era cunoscuta pe piata din URSS a intrat in productie in 1970, si s-a produs pana in 1984, cativa ani fiind disponibila in paralel cu sora Lada 1500. Masina era identica cu Fiat 124 fiind produsa sub licenta, dar era adaptata la standardele rusesti. Grosimea tablei din care era facuta a ramas legendara, iar primele versiuni ofereau posibilitatea pornirii motorului la manivela, mai ales pentru zonele reci ala Siberiei. Fiat a interzis vanzarea modelului in Vestul Europei, dar aceasta a avut totusi loc dupa ce Fiat 124 a iesit din productie. In Romania au existant si inca exista foarte multe exemplare.

      Macheta este produsa de IST pentru colectiile DeAgostini, avand o realizare mediocra. Spre deosebire de majoritatea modelelor din colectie, acesta nu are decalurile realizate bine, cele din spate lipsind in totalitate. Blocurile optice din spate, desi diferentiate pe culori, sunt vopsite peste crom, iar luminile de marsarier si semnalele din fata, sunt deasemenea reprezentate cu crom. Interiorul e detaliat dar e complet negru iar stergatoarele dau impresia unor ace.

Lada 1200 (1970) - DeAgostini/IST Models

      Lada 1200, aka VAZ 2101 "Zhiguli" (as known in USSR) entered in production in 1970, and was produced until 1984, some years being available with his younger sister, Lada 1500. The car was, in fact, a Fiat 124 built under license, but adapted to russian standards. The thickness of the metal it was built from became legendary, and the first versions had the feature to manually start the engine with a crank, for the cold regions of Siberia. Fiat banned the selling of the cars in Western Europe, but this happened after Fiat 124 ceased its production. In Romania, it was a very popular car, a lot still existing today.

      The model is produced by IST for the DeAgostini collection, at a medium quality. Unlike other models from the collection, this one has quite bad decals, the ones from the rear missing completely. The rearlights are painted differently for each light, but the paint was applied over the chrome. The interior is detailed and all black.. The wipers look like needles.
