Model Factory Hiro announced a new multi-material kit. This time it’s the Ferrari 156/85 in 1/43th scale!
Having lost the F1 title in the previous season with the 126C4, the works team’s entry for the 1985 season was the 156/85. Designed by Mauro Forghier and Harvey Postlethwaite, the 156/85 came equipped with an improved V6 turbo engine and a brand new body. The name 156/85 was to separate it from the previous 126 models, with hopes to revive the team fame under a brand new model name. The 156/85 managed to grasp victory at the Canadian and German GP under the hands of driver M. Alboreto., and while the car only managed to gain second place in both drivers and constructors championship, the 156/85 marked the beginning of the team`s revival in the F1 scene.
There will be three versions of the kit available:
K752 – Ver.A : 1985 Rd.5 Canadian GP #27 M.Alboreto / #28 S.Johansson
Based on the early version used in the 1985 season where M.Alboreto and S. Johansson completed with a 1-2 finish at the Canadian GP.
K753 – Ver.B :1985 Rd.12 Italian GP #27 M.Alboreto / #28 S.Johansson
