ABM 2022

ABM 2022
There is just one month to go until the ABM 2022 Scale Modeling Contest will be held at Toral de los Vados, a small town in northern Spain where the Berciana Scale Modeling Association has been preparing for months a contest that promises to be different from what we are all used to see.

And yes lads, of course SpotModel collaborates with the organization of the event. There we will be helping as much as possible, holding a colloquium on some subject about the world of civil scale modeling, and lending a hand in the not easy task of judging the contending models. You have more details on the organization's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/asociacionbercianademodelismo) and it promises to be very interesting :)

Don't know whether to go to the contest? Surely you have something worth to be shown, a lot to talk about and want to have a good time with your SpotModel friends. :)

Shunko Models: Marking / livery 1/12 scale - Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16v sponsored by Martini Racing #1, 5 - Massimo 'Miki' Biasion + Tiziano Siviero, Didier Auriol + Bernard Occelli - Sanremo Rally 1989 - water slide decals and assembly instructions - for Italeri reference 4709

Reference: SHK-D461

Italieri's scale model of the Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V covers the 1990 season, but this evolution really debuted the previous season on the occasion of the 1989 Sanremo rally. A decoration was used for the occasion that immediately caught the eye. The typical white of the body had been replaced by a striking red, and the Martini blue stripes appeared "broken" and discontinuous. A decoration that Shunko has adapted to a 1/12 scale to fit like a glove on the Italieri kit . Now all you have to do is decide on the suspension configuration... are you more of asphalt or dirt?

Reference: SHK-D462

Set of additional decals to those supplied by Italeri in the model. It includes the Martini logo with gold "chrome" edges as in the real car, as well as other logos not included in the kit. It also allows to complete the version of the third car of the official Lancia team lined up for Juha Kankkunen in the Montecarlo rally, incomprehensibly ignored in the Italieri scale model. It is true that leaving was not the best of results, but leaving out a 4-time world rally champion...
