James Hunt 1976 McLaren M23 1/12 scale

Kit / Model  

Mc Laren M26 1976 Transkit

Manufacturer  

Chevron

Item Code  

01

Scale  

1/12

Description  

Chevron have issued again this transkit which is available for the Tamiya Texaco Marlboro M23 or Yardley.
Seven years ago I bought Chevron's conversion trilogy for the Ferrari 312T to T2 '77, the Tyrrell '76 to '77, and the M23 '74 to '76.
Within a year, I built the two first kits and let the McLaren for the "proper" moment (inspiration, motivation, etc.).
Time ago I had the opportunity to convince a Japanese modeler, Mr. Kenji Yagi, to translate a few pages of the instruction manual for me. This translation is available to any modeler interested on it, I will gladly send it by e-mail.

I have wrote a full article step by step about how to make the job, which I guess could be useful for those who will confront the challenge of building this model

Hi Simon is not easy to build, I think is discontinued since several years ago. The one is being offered nowadays is made of resin and I don't like really.
