The McLaren F1 has been one of my favourite cars pretty much since it first came out. For quite some time, there weren't any 1/24 kits available of it. Studio 27 did a curbside kit that's very basic and for a while, that was it. Then Model Factory Hiro announced they were going to do a series of them in their full detail line. I immediately placed a preorder. They've got 4 versions of the short tail early cars (my favourite) and a similar number of the later long tail ones. More recently Aoshima and Fujimi have released IM kits of the car both in short tail and long tail versions. Onto to the kit. The box isn't very big, a bit smaller than a typical Revell USA car kit box. With the inherent complexity of the kit, I bought two in case I screwed one up. Hopefully that won't happen but never say never. Here's what you see upon opening the box. MFH packed the delicate resin body panels in a separate clear box to keep them safe from damage.
