We recently reviewed the Kyosho Lancia 037 Martini #1 Winner – Rally Montecarlo 1983, driver W.Rohrl and Co-driver C.H.Geistdorfer replica. At the time we received two other new releases from Kyosho, which we promised to share in photo form. Here they are, welcome the 1:18 Lancia 037 Jolly Club Totip #18 Rally San Remo 1983, driver M.Biasion and Co-driver T.Siviero and 1:18 the Lancia 037 Team Club Grifone Wurth #16 Rally Costa Esmeralda 1983, driver G.F.Cunico and Co-driver E.Bartolich. As for the models, they are aligned with the earlier review, no more surprises here. If you want to learn more please read the full in-depth review HERE. Enjoy the pics!
I note with great regret that the decoration of the tail of the 037 Totip continues to be wrong; moreover, the plate is completely absurd (there are no Italian plates with only 4 numbers: the correct plate should be TO Y70772) and it should have been positioned at the base of the spoiler, with an illumination light. The IXO model, which costs a lot less, did much better. Since the model was relisted, such an error should have been corrected. Kyosho disappoints me more and more.
The model is very old and has big inaccuracies. Most Lancia 037s had different rims at the front and rear. The rear should be split, and the rim of the disc should protrude much more than the front.
