Lancia D50 F1 1954, 1955 1:18 by CMC
Alternative version CMCM177 Castellotti Monaco
We suggested the D50 as a suitable subject to CMC many years ago and received a reply at the time that “We have had similar thoughts”, which goes to show how long the planning and design of these projects can take! First impressions are very good, the model looking to be well proportioned, has excellent paint and the external visible details, such as the coolers and fuel lines and the cockpit parts are all neatly done. There are numerous filler covers which open to then reveal fixed fillers and after carefully undoing four catches, the bonnet can be removed to reveal a very impressive engine, mounted at a suitable angle. The model looks as it if can be further broken down to reveal more of the chassis and suspension, with screws to remove some panels and here it’s a little disappointing to see these rather obviously beneath the bonnet edges.

This range has become the benchmark by which we judge 1:18 high detail die-cast model, a type we have come to refer to as 'Premium die-casts'.
Opening panels reveal full engines, with chassis and suspension detail visible beneath and interiors have realistic material finishes. Paint finishes on bodywork excellent and where a race car livery is required, the decals are accurately placed. Made in China.
