Honda McLaren MP4/4 – Tamiya 1/20

Hello everyone, this is Ayrton Senna’s 1988 MP4/4 F1 car. I finished it way back in 2012 and I think I used an iPhone 4s for the photos. For the white and red I used Tamiya spray cans TS-26 Pure White and TS-36 Fluorescent Red. I airbrushed Tamiya acrylics for everything else. Looking back on it now it seems the kit did not come with Goodyear decals for the tires or front wing. Anyway, I really like F1 and the Marlboro liveries from the 80’s and 90’s.

  1. Very Nicely Done Sir

  2. Very neat, Christopher, classic car, I think Tamiya had license issues with Goodyear, but you can get after market decal sets quite easily.

  3. Nicely done Christopher, looks good.

    Well done Christopher, has a very nice sheen.
    I am very much in par with George about the aftermarket decal set, those tires really need
    the GOOD YEAR markings.

  5. This is a really nicely built McLaren of my beloved Ayrton, Christopher!
