Delahaye 135S 1st Le Mans 1938 #15 Chaboud/Tremoulet by Spark

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.

About Spark

The range which changed the 1:43 model market and for which we coined the term 'resincast'. Resin rather than traditional diecast bodies mean that relatively short production runs can be made and what might be marginal subjects become viable. Quality is very consistent with plenty of fine etch used where necessary. A huge range is the result, covering all aspects of (mostly postwar) motorsport and a wide variety of road cars. We typically see around 30 new subjects released per month and pre-orders are strongly recommended. Made in China
