1/20 MPC McLaren Mk 8d
Posted by DRUMS01 on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 1:15 PM

This is the older original kit produced in the late 70's or early 80's. The entire kit was molded in orange, with a one piece body. The driver was not included and came from a Tamiya F1 car; the crew figure is from a Tamiya 1/20 crew kit. The rear wing and chassis was recovered in bare metal foil. The engine area was detailed with plug wires, brake lines, etc. The fit was above average and there are many opportunities to super detail it if desired. I hope you like it.....

Comments welcome....

That second shot is great.  The driver looks real, as does the car.

Feelings are like scents: The more they are analyzed, the worse they smell.
