This is a scale model kit to be assembled by an adult; it includes all the parts as indicated but it does not include glue or paints, which can also be purchased separately at SpotModel!.
Fantastic MFH kit where, as usual, several materials are combined, including resin, white metal, turned metal parts, photo-etched parts, rubber tires, different cables and materials to recreate the pipes and connections, and a complete sheet of decals that includes tobacco advertising. The rims are covered in black aluminum for an even more realistic finish. Based on the version that raced in the Portuguese Grand Prix held in Estoril, where Alain Prost took second place, and in the controversial Japanese Grand Prix held in Suzuka, where both McLaren team drivers collided during their battle for the World Drivers Championship title. This reference, unlike versions A and C, features a rear spoiler without additional flaps.

Additional details for the McLaren Honda MP4/5 car scale model kit:

Due to the change of regulation, in the 1989 season turbo engines are prohibited and it is changed to naturally aspirated engines. Honda developed a 3.5L V10 engine called the RA109-E, along with new technology like the semi-automatic transmission. The performance is so outstanding that it vastly outperformed all rivals, such as Ferrari, which was still working on those new technologies. The MP4/5 won 10 races out of 16 (of which Senna won 6 and Prost won 4), helping to win the Constructors' World Championship that season. In the Drivers' World Championship classification, although Senna won more races than Prost, regularity allowed Prost to obtain more points than Senna and become world champion, albeit after the controversial maneuver that ended with Senna being disqualified in race number 15, the Japanese GP.
