Shunko recommends using hot water, leaving the decals into the water longer than usual. After that, leave it untouched for about 20 seconds before handling, and position it carefully and slowly into place while applying heat with a hair dryer
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 The typical white of the body had been replaced by a striking red, and the Martini blue stripes appeared "broken" and discontinuous.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

In order to counteract the decrease in power with a higher level of torque, Lancia decided to mount a 16V cylinder head on the 4-cylinder 2-liter engines of its Delta. The improvement that this meant is beyond doubt, and even Lancia's satellite team, the Jolly Club, recognized that this was approximately half a second per kilometer. The Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V made its debut with victory at the 1989 San Remo rally, with a memorable comeback on the last day by Miki Biasion to win by just 5 seconds. If the turbo had something to do with it, it is something that only a few know...
