The kit has arrived so let’s see what’s in the box.
First the instructions, with a brief description of the car in six languages.
An illustration of all the parts.
Followed by a nine part assembly sequence.
And a colour illustration for the transfers’ locations.
Onto the plastic, the kit was originally issued by Protar in 1984, and some of the parts are showing their age. The main body part is moulded in white with a couple of big chunks of sprue feed to cut off.
Next we have the doors and rear inner wheel arches, also in white.
Two black sprues for most of the interior, wheels, brakes, and other details.
A clear sprue.
Four vinyl/rubber slick tyres.
And lastly some rubber tubing and two screws.
It’s strictly a “kerbside” kit, so there’s no engine detail at all. A bit chunky perhaps, but it looks OK.
In this release Italeri included some new transfers by Cartograf, which normally guarantee good quality.
I intend to start building this right away, so plenty more to come.
Thanks for looking and happy modelling.
