1/20 McLaren M23 '76 - New decals

Post by Steffen_T »

Hi all,

as some of you might know I had been in contact with the decal manufacture Vector-Magic-decals in the past and this company released a decalsheet for the Lotus 102B based on my research results.
They have now released a new decalsheet for the 1/20 Tamiya McLaren M23 which includes some stuff I haven't seen on any other sheet yet.

On the picture bellow from their website I could identify these decals:

1 - Scrutineering decal for the Spanish Grand Prix 1976
2 - 'Caution! Wide vehicle!' This decal was used as a joke following Hunts disqualification from Spain
3 - Sidepod Startingnumbers for the Belgium Grand Prix 1976
4 - Scrutineering decal for the Canadian Grand Prix 1976
5 - Scrutineering decal for the US-East Grand Prix 1976 (also used at Japan)
6 - Scrutineering decal for the Japanese Grand Prix 1976
7 - Scrutineering decal for the US-West Grand Prix 1977 (also used on Gilles Silverstone car)


I suppose there is more stuff included which I couldn't identify on this tiny picture.
So if you want to build your M23 in a particular race version, this set might be a help to get a bit closer to perfection.

Here is the link to their website:
