1/12 scale. Honda RA273. Tamiya. In 1966, Formula 1 regulations were changed and stipulated a move from cars with 1.5-liter engines to those with 3-liter ones. Having finally tasted success with the 1.5-liter RA272 the year before, the Honda engineers unfortunately had to start from scratch again, and the RA273 was not ready until the Italian GP in 1966. Featuring a lightweight monocoque frame with aluminum panels and powered by a 90 degree V-12 engine, it was driven by Richie Ginther and John Surtees, Ginther finishing the season in a respectable 4th place overall. Kit features 3 liter V12 engine complete with fuel pipe and plug wire details, transmission, radiator and water pipes, moveable front/rear suspension with metal coil springs, rubber tires with accurate tread patterns, photoetched parts for (air funnel, brake discs, radiator, and other parts), metal transfers for emblems and meters. Molded in grey, black, white and cream with chrome plated parts. Also includes driver figure. Decals and markings for No.18 Richie Ginther or No.11 John Surtees - includes dash gauges.
