I already have the Lotus 99T's in stock and ready to ship
The MP4-5B's will be here within a week, and the MP4/6 and Ferrari 643's will be in stock as soon as they are available
I am working on getting a real online store up and running, but for now PM me with inquiries
here is my old MP4/5 B on the 102 chassis, cant wait to do some more


body and wings should be nearly identical
I am having a bit of trouble getting the rear wing strut as Tamiya has them listed as discontinued, but I am working on it
Also looking at doing my own decals for a few cars, just need to find the time to set up the artwork for them

The rear wing strut is the same as the 312t and the Lotus.Not the wire like the old one so its a bit stronger,if you can get it.

That's one slick looking Senna McLaren.........

Yeah I know the new kits have the plastic wing strut, it's the K parts tree, that's the part that Tamiya has listed as discontinued. I am working through it with the distributor to try and get it.

Default Senna

Is Tamiya doing a special event for Senna? The Lotus, and two old Mclarens were driven by Aryton Senna.

I dont know, but i'm glad that they re-popped the cars that they did, because with the exception of the Lotus, and the MP4/5B I missed the others the first time around

It has been raining on and off all day. So fighting boredom I decided to try and create a smooth under body on my F104. Knowing how the rear diffusers work I know having a smooth under body is important. When I first built the car I modified the stock diffuser to fit my Exotek chassis. Today I made pieces that fit on the body and closed things up along the chassis. I am not sure what aerodynamic effects this will have. Now it just needs to dry up tomorrow so I can get out and run the car.

Underside of the car. The rear pod everything is completely flush. The pieces attached to the body are flush at the rear and sit about level with the top of the chassis bottom plate in the front.


Looking down at the rear pod that is now the same width as the diffuser.


I used styrene to make all the parts. The rear diffuser and pieces that fill in the rear pod are one piece that is removable and held in by two screws. The two other pieces that run along the side of the chassis are attached to the body. Surprisingly the body is not much more difficult to remove or put on.

I spotted one difference.
The real F1 cars don't run on foam tires.

Tamiya was not a sponsor.
Autocar should be Autoglass/Carglass
Osama logo should be black, white (not body color) and red
Real car body not held on by body pins.

Default It's a great looking March but...

The front and rear wings are wrong.

There's no number

Should have five spoke wheels.

Otherwise, a model you should be really proud of!
