Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine McLaren MP4-31 Australia 2016 Alonso Alternative version SPK5012 Button & SPK5017 Vandoorne The McLaren-Honda partnership started 2016 much as it had run in 2015, with the cars off the pace despite their very experienced and fast drivers. In the opening race of the season their woes were further compounded with Alonso breaking ribs in an accident and having to miss the following race in Bahrain. Reserve driver Stoffel Vandoorne made his F1 race debut, scoring the teamís first point of the season for tenth position. The models are all very well finished in a very fine metallic black/dark gunmetal with subtle carbon texture on the floor and slightly more obtrusive weave showing on the suspension and some wing surfaces. The rear wing sponsors changed between the two races and these are correct, but there are alcohol related logos missing on the mirrors and front cockpit sides for Australia and on the cockpit for Bahrain and the rear wing endplates are moulded with the vents closed.
Very well finished mass produced resin built models. Ever improving detailing now incorporating more use of photoetched details for added finesse and with excellent paint finishes. Made in China
