This is a really old SRC 1/43 kit of Richie Ginther's Honda RA272 F1 car

Cool build. I like it. What year would that have been? Late 60's?

Very good Mark! I love the SRC kits. I built a '67 312 Ferrari. The kits are really crude compared to your Tameos but I still like em.

Thanks Chris! Yea even the first Tameo/Meri kits are better. I really liked this kit though I think I've built about 3 of them over the years for other people.

Very nice!

 

I don't know anything about these cars, but I'm surprised to see a transverse mounted engine in there. That seems weird.

Yea it is weird it had a 230hp V12 that was capable of 14000 RPM's pretty crazy for 1965.
