Update

In December 2010, I went to Catania with the Vitz to take part in the 'XVII Mostra Concorso di Modellismo Storico'. The little Toyota earned a 'Certificate of Merit', which I was pretty happy with. Here it is at the Exhibition table!

And a picture showing the tiny Vitz among other competition entries on the 'Mezzi Civili' table

Finally, here's the Vitz pictured next to the 'Certificate of Merit' it earned!

In April 2011, I entered the Toyota Vitz for a local exhibition and competition organized by the Association of Model Engineers. The Vitz earned a Gold Medal in the Intermediate class. Here it is on the exhibition table
