    DeaGostini “Build your own McLaren” Kit Review by Spencer “Warthog”West When I first heard that DeaGostini would be releasing a 1/8th Scale Model kit of what I can only say is one of the best looking F1 cars from the 2008 F1 season (IMO) and driven by the best British racing driver we have seen since Damon Hill and Nigel Mansell, (IMO) well.. I was lets just say a “tad” excited about being able to get my hands on what for many could have only been a pipe dream.. When I say “a pipe dream” I meant by being able to afford something in this scale and under Licence from McLaren themselves and also being able to spread the cost over 85 weeks was something I and others could not ignore. So on the week of release I got myself down to the local newsagents to pick up the first issue containing 90% of the front wing components. On opening, I was very pleased to see that the level of detail was exceptional and all the parts are pre-painted, this is how the list of parts continued throughout so that even a novice builder of this McLaren should have no problems as long as they followed the very informative and illustrated step by step guides that come with each issue. The kit as a whole is built up using ABS plastic for the body and metal parts for the suspension and engine components. All this is put together using the screws provided and ABS glue (sold separately) to give you the feeling your actually building an F1 car. (yes, even they use glue) I found all these parts manufactured to a very high standard and once again pre-painted ready to build. The suspension is put together with little screws and can be quite tricky for those with shaky hands but once you have mastered one side then the rest should not provide you with any problems. The tyres are made from rubber and the wheels are metal, once again giving weight and quality to the McLaren MP4/23. Details such as the break discs and callipers are all there as are cooling intakes and airflow diffusers. The Engine and gearbox is a masterful creation once complete. The level of detail and the weight of it give’s you the feeling you are building and holding something that oozes quality. There is a lot of scope for the seasoned modeller who wishes to expand his/her talents and add extra detail if they so wish but it is certainly not necessary. The main body comprises of everything you would see in a Formula One racing car (if your lucky to get that close) with full harness and driver’s seat, steering wheel and pedals. Cockpit detail is outstanding and gives that realism that so many models lack. The Silver finish is the best I have seen on a pre-painted model and with the sponsor livery already on the main body, makes the job that much easier. Nice vibrant colours and crisp clean lines really make the car stand out and once the remaining decals have been put on you can then see this model come to life. So to sum up this build, I would say that I, like many others who have subscribed to the McLaren MP4/23 can say that this truly is an exceptional Model Kit and relatively easy to build depending on your skill level. The finish quality of the parts has set a new precedent for others to follow and I certainly have had months of joy building a few of these and congratulate Kyosho and DeaGostini for an exceptional model and look forward to future releases.

    Great model, great customer service and most importantly great fun building it.

    Great model and a pleasure to build! Most issues Deag sorted promptly so looking forward to the Senna MP4-4!

    I first heard about the build early in 2011 and I just had to build it. I started with the front wing and the quality was excellent and so i continued on for the next 17 months and completed the build late into November 2012. I was overwhelmed with my complete McLaren. DeAgostini had done a wonderful job with the detail and should most definitely be building again.
