Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine McLaren M20 Elkhart Lake 1974 #8 Patrick Hand built available MM254M This privately entered, two year old McLaren holds a very important place in the history of Can-Am as the Elkhart Lake race in August 1974 was the last of the ‘proper’ Can-Am races and Scooter Patrick won. The kit parts are well thought out, with the lower side panels which are to be painted matt black supplied as separate castings and plenty of etch for the ducting to the side mounted radiators. On the nose there is a small lump which the instructions say should be body coloured but matt and looking at race photos this appears to be an improvised air intake, perhaps to cool the driver, so we’d be inclined to open the front of it up before painting. The hand built is very well finished with that matt panel neatly masked and all of the decals carefully placed.
