The end of season version of the most beautiful and impressive car Senna drove in the 80's, the McLaren MP4/4, now reproduced in 1/12 scale by Model Factory Hiro. This model is only recommended for experienced modelers due to its size, the complexity of its assembly, and because it includes a large number of parts in various materials, such as resin, white metal, turned parts, photo-etched parts, vacuum-formed parts, etc. The engine has internal operating parts, such as the crankshaft, pistons, and connecting rods. Includes carbon fiber decals for the different parts of the monocoque. Once assembled, the upper body can be removed to reveal the impressively detailed mechanicals. This reference modifies the rear wing, with two planes for the configuration of medium speed circuits. A delight for the eyes!

Additional details for the McLaren Honda MP4/4 car scale model kit:
The McLaren-Honda MP4/4 is one of the most successful Formula One cars of all time. Powered by Honda's RA168E 1.5-litre V6 turbo engine, and driven by Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, it was used by McLaren in the 1988 season. It was one of the few new single-seaters introduced that season, with most teams, like Ferrari, Lotus, Arrows or Tyrrell using evolved versions of the previous season to focus on the development of new single-seaters for the 1989 season, when the use of turbocharged engines would be prohibited.
Honda thus changed its partner in F1, ceasing to equip Williams and starting to motorize McLaren single-seaters, whose TAG-Porsche engines had become obsolete.
The car was designed by American engineer Steve Nichols, with Gordon Murray, as technical director, in charge of liaising between the drawing office and the production section.
The combination of the MP4/4 chassis with the Honda engine became one of the most dominant Formula One cars ever built, winning all but one race of the 1988 season (the one held at the Monza circuit), as well as all but one of the pole positions (that of the GP held at Silverstone) and, of course, won both titles, with the drivers' title going to Ayrton Senna, with 8 wins to the 7 achieved by his teammate Alain Prost.
