This is a simple balsa bodyshell I've just carved of Bruce McLaren's 1966 Monaco Grand Prix car that marked the start of his grand prix team.

I only had the wheelbase measurement, a side view photo and a photo from above taken at Monaco to base the carving on so it is more about capturing the impression of the car rather than accuracy. As it is a quick carving I have only hinted at engine detail.

The body is fitted to an Airfix slimline chassis.

Hi Pete
i agree with phillippe ,it was a succesful indy motor converted into a totally useless F1 engine ,but no doubt it seemed like good idea at the time
talkingof yamuras i think at least 3 cars were used during the film ,both iterations of the mclaren (both ford and serrienissima) and i seemto remember that mike spence drive a parnell lotus 33 in white and green at one or more of the gps when the maclarens didn,t come out to play .
I suupose the shots were so quick that it is difficult to see

cheers tony
