Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine McLaren M12 Mosport 1969 #7/11/98 - kit Hand built available MM285M7 Surtees MM285M11 Motschenbacher & MM285M98 Eaton The M12 was McLaren’s, Trojan-built, customer car for the 1969 season and here we see the first three examples as they raced in the season-opener at Mosport. Surtees, in his white car, was the most successful, finishing third having started in fourth. Motschenbacher lined up behind him on the grid but retired from the race and George Eaton’s similarly coloured red machine started from the back having failed to set a practice time, but climbed to ninth at the end. The kit parts are typically well cast and images of the finished models along with a clear assembly drawing show the small detail differences between them with mirror placement and different rear spoilers, which are supplied as etched parts. There’s more etch for the cockpit tub and various small fixings and as usual for Marsh, the built models are immaculately finished and show that the parts go together well. The Surtees car matches race photos very well and from the images we have the Motschenbacher version looks accurate too. The Eaton car has the correct spoilers etc, but here there are a couple of small supplier logos missing on the lower flanks.
