Lancia Delta S4 M@r!b*r* – Beemax 1/24

Postby JesusM » Sun Jan 20, 2019 1:05 pm

New entry with new project and with recently released kit: Lancia Delta S4 of the firm Beemax at scale 1/24. A very desired kit because it is an icon of the GrB, and because the kit only existed in resin manufacturing, not very accessible to all the modelers. Here is the box:

Image

But I’m not going to do the Martini livery, M@r!b*r* one will be the choice, car that led Juan Carlos Oñoro in the Spanish gravel rallye Championship in 1987, and he won it. Not to be confused with the car that ran the following two years with Gustavo Trelles, in the same championship.

The car was the unit # 225 that Marku Alen piloted in 1986, which he won in the San Remo rally. Here you have a photo with the chosen livery:

Image

Being a novelty, I show you the staples that come in the box:

Image

Image

Image

In the following picture, we can see the chrome staples, including the rear wheel rings:

Image

And of course, the tires, the skinny point of the kit since they do not remember much the ones used in the world rally championship:

Image

The tires, which curiously come with a layer of rubber on the inside, being logically from the mold. They can be removed without any problems:

Image

The crystals: they come in good detail

Image

Image

And the body parts. The kit has the possibility of having the front and the hood of the engine open, to be able to see its interior:

Image

Image

Image

Image

In itself, the pieces come very well, with enough detail that of course you can detail to increase it. It must also be said that they have some burr that we will have to eliminate. In the following photo, we see a pre-assembly of the bodywork where its good forms are seen:

Image

We go to the decals, with another sheet of those that are placed on the edge of the crystals, but that can be painted perfectly, so that the decay does not cancel the rivets of the crystals that comes with good detail:

Image

Also, the kit has a complementary bag, which is purchased separately, with photoetches and carbon and kevlar decals, fully recommended:

Image

And now, I show you what I contribute to make this version:

- Tires copy of Profil24 kit, made by our friend Fanalone, to whom I give my thanks!
- Decals made by my order to Artecnodecals, who had them ready for the Profil24 kit, and which I will use in this one.

Image

And starting, we take out all the parts that form part of the axles from the staples and thus, be able to test the new tires:

Image

Here we see the pre-assembly of the front axle, including a Renaissance tire that had for the shopping test box. We’ll see what I’ll use!

Image

As you can see, the kit has good details:

Image

And here is the rear train:

Image

And when we add the body, the front part is pretty good:

Image

As for the rear part, the rubber should be narrower and more tucked in, as it is a car with ground specifications:

Image

Image

In the next photo, we see its general appearance, which convinces me, and the height of the car, as well as the tires, I’ll leave it for later. The first test is valid!

Looks like a fun project. Excuse my ignorance but I notice there will be Camel and M'boro decals on the same car,right next to each other. I'm guessing that the event was sponsored by Camel, and that all the cars had to have a Camel logo to compete?
