Model Factory Hiro is well known for manufacturing high-quality model kits with incredible attention to detail, and their fully detailed versions of the Lancia Montecarlo Turbo in 1/12 scale are no exception. The story of this build began about 35 years ago, when my father bought me a blue, battery-powered Lancia Beta Turbo as a surprise gift. This sparked my desire that one day I would acquire a scale model representation of the car that would be as detailed as possible. The dream came true when Model Factory Hiro released three full detailed versions of Montecarlo Turbo, in 1/12 scale, and without further ado the kit was already on my bench.

The MFH kit
As most MFH kits, this scale model is a great starting point for super-detailing, even though many mechanical parts’ subsystems and most of the cabling are missing.
However, this does not mean that you cannot build a beautiful model straight out of the box. In any case, fitting parts of a multimedia kit requires great attention and planning, as we do not deal with a perfect engineering and fitting kit such as Tamiya in this case.

Starting a Hiro kit build is essentially starting a game of chess. Each move affects the next and the slightest mistake may cost in fitting or detailing issues. In addition, as in the famous board game, the more moves (test fits) you are ahead the better you can predict the way they will interact with each other and the less likely it is to be checkmated during the final assembly.
