Hola a todos. Debido que estamos recluidos en casa, que mi Ferrari está esperando las calcas, que el Delta S4 requiere todavía mucho trabajo y que quiero terminar algo rapidito (buena escusa, verdad?), me atrevo con este kit antiguo, de pocas piezas, que espero terminarlo de buena manera. Aquí os presento la caja:
Hello everyone. Because we are confined at home, that my Ferrari is waiting for the decals, that the Delta S4 still requires a lot of work and that I want to finish something quick (good excuse, right?), I dare with this old kit, of few pieces, that I hope finish it in a good way. Here is the box:
And here, the exploded view. We start with the bodywork, which itself has no burr problems and is well proportioned:
To highlight, the air intakes that come covered and will have to be opened!
These sockets have two plastic plates underneath which logically should disappear.
As for the chassis, little to say because in addition to being little, it is purely functional since it was prepared to put an electric motor! We can try dirtying techniques !!
And here you have the rest of the exploded view: seats, tires, wheels and … little more!
And we start with the work, opening the front gills. Here we see that the ones on the left side are already open:
If we look at the inside, we see what I have had to remove, thanks to the mini drill!
And here I show you two gills, already open, and with traces of green putty, used to fill the traces of the work!
Another task performed is to open the air intake, both for the front part and the part corresponding to the body.
Here I have already pasted it. Say that the two horizontal panels had to be redone:
And like the real car, it is an air intake belonging to the body, without panel lines, which are filled with putty:
And here, once sanded, waiting for the primer to see differences:
Pasamos a la parte trasera. Del alerón, tapamos las marcas del molde:
Now, we move to the back. From the spoiler, we cover the mold marks:
Y añadimos el control manual del plano trasero del alerón. Una varilla de latón y un trocito de plástico ranurado por el centro para que se introduzca la varilla, que en su extremo he aplanado con unos alicates. Después tendrá us corresponidnetes tornillos:
And we added manual control of the rear wing plane. A brass rod and a piece of plastic grooved in the center to insert the rod, which I have flattened at its end with pliers. Then you will have the corresponding screws:
And another piece I’m working on is the backplane containing the lights and a position light:
Another improvement point: the headlights. They come in white plastic like what you see in front, which I am going to replace with some from Scale production, but which ones? I decide on the ones on the right of the photo !!
More modifications: we open the exhaust pipes with a bit to deepen the hollow and decrease the sides:
As for the chassis, little to say. We will only have to detail the cockpit as much as possible because it is the only thing that can be seen, and try fouling and aging techniques!
This is all for now, Thanks for watching and commenting!
