1/12 Tamiya Race Cars

Recommended Posts

I wish Tamiya would continue the line, with some of the great classics of the past, in 1/12 scale.


Porsche 917K

Porsche 917-30

Ford GT40 (1969)

McLaren M8D

Chaparral 2E

Ferrari 156


Brabham BT19

Matra MS80

Tyrrell 005

Hesketh 308

Williams FW07B

Brabham BT49 or 52


Oh I could go on and on.

Well, Model Factory Hiro is releasing a 1/12 917LH(Long Tail) very soon, but you'll have to take out a second mortgage to get one. MFH also made 1/20 versions of quite a few of the cars on your list...I have the '67 Belgium GP winning Gurney Eagle that I hope to have finished by the NATS. MFH models are packed with detail, but NOT for the faint of heart, as they are $$$ multimedia kits. My guess is the 917LH will be around $6 or 700 bucks and will sell out quickly. My Gurney kit in 1/20 was $280, and to me that's a bargain.
