Yardley McLaren M23 Denny Hulme Swedish GP-73

Kit / Model  

Marlboro Texaco M23

Manufacturer  

Tamiya

Item Code  

12014

Scale  

1/12

Description  

Hi

For this conversion I used MTR:s decals so I could do
Hulmes Winning car in Sweden -73
Some other aftermarket things as rivets, nuts and bolts, braided lines etc. was also used.

In my opinion I think this McLaren was one of the most beautyful F1 cars from the 70:s :-)
I really like the design and the livery

Hi David
I have no info or knowledge that my Swedish GP version
should be modified regarding wheelbase and uprights.
So there is nothing modified there.
The area around the head rest on the airbox is the most visible changes what I can recall.

I have the early T-M M23 kit and the necessary decals to retro to 1973, though I am going to do Revson British GP car. Question, I see that you reduced the wheelbase. I am working on a 3" inch or 1/4" in 1:1 spacer, which I bleive is correct for the Silverstone car. Did you run into any surprised when reducting the suspension? Did you fabricate totally new connecting rods.

Always I wanted to build this, but decals weren't available then. Good job! as usual.
