This is a "Just announced!" product at SpotModel that will be available for preorder soon. If you wish, you can add it to your notifications section (just click on the "Add to notifications" button), and we will send you an email the minute there are any updates on that product.
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!.
After announcing the 1/12 kit, it is the turn of the 1/24 scale reference, which despite its smaller size is just as precise and detailed. And its upper part of the body, which comes in a single piece, can be removed, leaving all the mechanics visible, with its Honda RA168E 1.5L V6 turbocharged engine and transmission realistically reproduced. In addition, the kit includes stands where we can support the body, and the front spoiler assembly can be removed to display it separately. It also brings photo-etched parts and fabric to recreate the safety harnesses. The decals allow you to choose between the Ayrton Senna or Alain Prost version, and also include a separate sheet with the carbon fibre decals and another with metallic effect decals to replicate the thermal insulation layer of the chassis.

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.
