Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Delahaye 135S 1st Le Mans 1938 #15 For most of the 1938 Le Mans race the Alfa Romeo led and when it broke with around an hour to go, this Delahaye, which had run for most of the distance in top gear only, was twelve laps down, but it kept going to the end and just pipped the Alfa’s distance. Another Delahaye finished second and seeing photos of the two together, we have a problem. Colours are very difficult to gauge from black and white images when a subject is in isolation, but there are several photos of the two Delahayes together and this car was clearly painted a darker shade than its sibling. The overall shape of the model looks good (apart from the windscreen which isn’t quite right) and the paint finish is excellent, but it is in a pale French blue whereas the photos and a period painting by Geo Ham suggest a darker shade.
Very well finished mass produced resin built models. Ever improving detailing now incorporating more use of photoetched details for added finesse and with excellent paint finishes. Made in China
