ABC Brianza - Delahaye 134N Autobineau Superluxe 1:43 model
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Delahaye 134N Autobineau Superluxe 1934 Hand built available ABC339 Autobineau was a subsidiary of Letourner et Marchand, set up to provide production bodywork for various manufacturers, most commonly Delage and Delahaye. Several body styles were offered on the latter’s 134 chassis and the variant offered here was known as the Superluxe. The main distinguishing feature of this from the regular Berline is that the doors opened with no central pillar to make for spacious access. The main body casting in the kit is very crisp and in ABC’s usual style there are very fine etched inserts for the bonnet side vents, etched frames for the windows and plenty of other small trim details. We’re used to seeing plated door handles as separate pieces but here the hinges have also been made as plated castings, so you have a choice of finish here, to either fit them as they are or before painting the main body colour. The car modelled has a sunroof and this is moulded as a recess in the body with a piece of adhesive backed fabric to be fitted. All extremely thoughtful kit design.
