The new SILVERLINE kit proposes the Alfa Romeo 177 with which the Italian driver Bruno Giacomelli raced in the Belgian GP in 1979. Unlucky race due to an accident at the start of the race with the other Italian driver Elio de Angelis. The Alfa Romeo 177 is the single-seater of Alfa Romeo’s return to Formula 1 after more than 40 years. The model follows the line already undertaken in recent months with components designed to be assembled simply
making this type of kits suitable for anyone, especially beginners modellers.
Inside the sturdy cardboard box we find all the carefully packed pieces, decals and instructions.
The instructions are exhaustive providing the step-by-step assembly sequence with the component numbers and the associated colours. Furthermore, to complete the documentation there are several images of the real car during the Belgian Grand Prix.
It takes very little time and effort to finish the body in white metal. The quality is really high.
The engine is casted together with the chassis in order to simplify the assembly and gives strength to the final assembly.
Here are all the details that make up the kit. Wheels, suspensions, engine components and wings, etc …..
The well-formed exhausts are also very well defined. All this in order to make the assembly as simple as possible.
In the photoetched part frame we find the rear wing side plates, the safety belts, the radiators and the usual identification plate to put on the base. The small back light is very realistic.
Tyres are made using real rubber with well-designed and defined pad printing, avoiding the complicated application of decals.
The decals sheet goes to complete the necessary for the realization of our model. Useful those aluminum for the skirts that avoid complicated masking.
