Additional details for the McLaren Ford MP4/1B car scale model kit:

The McLaren MP4/1 was a revolutionary car that, without a doubt, changed the course of F1, being the first to use a carbon fibre composite chassis in Formula One.

At the end of the seventies the situation McLaren's economy was not very buoyant, so the team merged with Project Four (where the "P4" in the MP4 name comes from) where a talented engineer named John Barnard was active.

Barnard was responsible for the design of the new car, for which he wanted a narrow chassis to maximize the area available for the ground effect generated by the sidepods. To achieve this without the structural rigidity being affected by the reduction of material, he needed a new material, and that is why he turned to carbon fibre, visiting the British Aerospace facilities to understand how said material was worked. Each of the layers that make up the fibre had to be precisely calculated, and Barnard went so far as to say that working with carbon fibre was "more like tailoring than building a car".

SpotModel recommends this product exclusively for experienced professional modellers and collectors. Take appropriate precautions as this product is not a toy, it can be toxic and/or dangerous. Keep away from children. Use is not allowed for children under 14 years.

Undoubtedly, the Italian brand Tameo Kits is the reference in the world of scale modeling for F1 lovers, with hundreds of 1/43 scale models (even some in 1/24 scale) with different levels of detail, from simple models to focus on the most visible parts, to the most detailed models with fully detailed engines... there are even some references including the tools used in the pit box. Their catalog also includes some of the great prototypes of the 70s, street sports cars, as well as a complete listing of spare decals and accessories.
