MP4/2C

MP4/2C
A few weeks ago we told you some things about the impressive McLaren Honda MP4/4 and today it's the turn of one of its predecessors: the McLaren TAG Porsche MP4/2C. It was the third evolution of the MP4/2, characterized by some changes in aerodynamics, which helped McLaren to take second place in the 1986 constructors' championship, with Prost and Rosberg at the wheel. Today it is unthinkable that a Formula 1 model remains collecting victories in the championship for 3 consecutive seasons, hence the huge importance of the MP4/2.

Italeri announced a few months ago that they were working on a 1/12 scale reproduction of the McLaren TAG Porsche MP4/2C, and today they have confirmed that the product is finished and will arrive at SpotModel in the next few days, from where we will be delighted to manage your order and send you one home. There are no specific third party products yet to improve the model, but you can accompany it with the volume 12 of the Ultra Detail Guides series by Komakai, the specific colors by Number Five and the set of seat belts for Formula 1 by Reji Models.

At SpotModel we keep counting the hours to see the result: tick tock, tick tock... :D

Llewellin could only finish ninth, while Blomqvist dropped out, but that doesn't mean we don't want to have him in our showcase anymore...

Fujimi: Car scale model kit 1/24 scale - Lotus Esprit S1 - paint masks, plastic parts, rubber parts, water slide decals, assembly instructions and painting instructions

Fujimi Reference: FJ12640

In the seventies, the crisis that affected Lotus only had one way out, to revalue the market by going to the territory of Ferrari. The result was the Esprit, designed by Giugiaro. A supercar with angular lines that ended up rivaling head-to-head with Porsche or Ferrari. This kit allows you to reproduce one of the first versions of the Esprit, the S1, which had a 2-liter 16-valve engine and 142 HP of power. But perhaps this car is best remembered for its stellar appearance as James Bond's car in the movie "The Spy Who Loved Me", where it had the ability to navigate underwater... turned into a submarine!
