Ahem!!!! I am dumb enough :oops: :oops: :oops: :roll: not to have seen it's a 1/12 :D :D :D :D WOOOOOW!!!!! finally a modern release of 1/12 plastic car.
250 eu is not exactly cheap, but compared with the price of the 1/20s is just great!!
And again it's a "declinable" car as the Tamiya 1/20 was. More than one will go for the backdating 8)

probably. Anyway, any chance it's the late season car? a holly grail for many and clearly different. I am surprised for the double periscope holes on the body!! :shock: anyone?

Would that be what is needed to do a very late 25?

I also wonder if MP4/4 could be in their future plans. I am no expert, but I think Honda engine in MP4/4 was similar or the same.
And after that how about FW11B ? Did it have similar Honda engine ?
Conversion into 98T will be obvious one for sure.

Hopefully that means you can make it into different versions. At one point 20 years ago I had a Studio 27 Lotus 99T conversion kit that moved the hole for the turbo inlets. I won't pretend to know enough about the car to know if it was a conversion to a 98T or not.

Nichenson did a great thread a few years ago explaining the various transkits available for Tamiya's 99T:
viewtopic.php?f=25&t=28648

According to the informations in that thread, some personal research and the preview pictures by Lunokhod (Thank you!!!) I would say the kit represents the Monaco version.
Nakajima's car still had the old snorcles at Monaco, while Senna used a new rounded version. On one picture I have seen from Monaco Sennas car even had holes for both verions, with the unused one simply being closed with yellow tape.

Looks great.....at 23,000 yen it’s a bargain compared to MFH kits.

I haven’t heard this news nor can I find any. Any more details? I’m very excited about this!
