This item is an injection-plastic racing car model kit.

A welcomed re-release of Tamiya's big super-detailed 1/12-scale 1974 McLaren M23 Formula One race car kit! Includes tubing for plumbing and wiring the detailed engine, and a fine fret of photo-etched metal detail parts. Markings provided for the No. 5 car of Emerson Fittipaldi and No. 6 Denny Hulme. (This new release does not include the tobacco and tire manufacturer markings shown in the image of the completed model below...but does include the "Texaco" decals.)

Replacing the McLaren M19 in 1973 was the formidable M23 which was used for four years until it was eventually replaced in 1977 with the M26. The M23 earned McLaren the Constructors' Championship in 1974 as well as two Drivers' Championships in 1974 (James Hunt) and 1976 (Emerson Fittipaldi). The M23 was also driven by MotoGP legend Mike Hailwood who won third place at the 1974 South African Grand Prix.

The Tamiya 1/12 scale model captures all the details of this iconic race car. The model was originally released in 1974 and this limited edition re-release includes photo-etched parts to further enhance the models realism.
