Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine McLaren MP4-1C US GP West 1983 Lauda 1:18 Alternative version MIN537831807 Watson Although Watson, Lauda and McLaren were all used to winning races, none expected a 1-2 finish at Long Beach as the drivers lined up in 22nd and 23rd positions on the grid, but a combination of the right tyres, plenty of overtaking and a few collisions ahead of them saw an unlikely victory. The shape of Minichampsí model looks pretty good when compared with the many race photos available and some details such as the lack of tyre decals is correct. The livery is compromised by legislation and so they look rather plain but there is no real excuse for the satin tampo printed finish on the orange areas these days, especially not at this scale. The lacking sponsorship can at least be addressed (MUSDC18825) and that will improve things significantly.
One of the market leaders in die-cast models. Good shapes, excellent paint and decoration. 1:43rds are kerbside while 1:18ths usually have plenty of opening parts and detail. Also an increasing number of 1:43 resincast models. Made in China.
