Years go by, and it's still spectacular. Tamiya's kit of the famous 6-wheeled Tyrrell, with its extensively detailed Cosworth engine, its removable bodywork to reveal part of the cockpit with the pedals and the steering column, and the addition of a photo-etched plate with elements such as the lower bracket of the spoiler or the filter of the intake air to the engine, which was mounted specifically for the Japanese Grand Prix, continues to be a delight for the modeler, whether he is a fan of Formula 1 or not.

Additional details for the Tyrrell Ford P34 Six Wheels car scale model kit:

The Tyrrell P34 (Project 34), also known as the "six wheeler", was a Formula 1 single-seater created by Derek Gardner, Tyrrell's lead designer in the 1970s, in response to new regulations being introduced to the 1976 Formula 1 championship.

The car used 10-inch diameter wheels and tires at the front, made especially for the single-seater, and normal wheels at the rear.

Contrary to popular belief, the idea of front tires smaller was not having less "frontal area" to reduce drag, as frontal area was still determined by the size of the rear slicks, which remained the standard size. In fact, the advantage of the six-wheel design is that it reduced the lift caused by the use of two larger front wheels, thus improving front downforce, increasing the total contact area of the front tires, and brake discs had a larger swept area.

Giving the age of the kit and the fact it contains photoetched parts i give 4 stars. Without photoetch it would be 3 as quality of some parts is quite low and requires lots of filling and sanding.
