This is a racing car model kit assembled from parts made of resin, white metal, photo-etched metal and possibly other materials.
From Japan's own Model Factory Hiro comes this exquisite kit of the Toleman TG184! Here's the scoop, adapted from their website:
Toleman first entered into Formula 1 in 1981, with Brian Hart providing the engines and Rory Bryne in charge of design. While the team started off uncompetitive, they finally saw progress by the later half of 1983. In 1984, Aryton Senna entered the team as his F1 debut, and managed to take 2nd place at Monaco GP and 3rd in both Britain and Portugal GP.
Monaco GP was a memorable race as Senna gave close chase to first-place driver, McLaren's Alain Prost. The race was called off midway due to worsening rain conditions; however, many have said that Senna may have been able to claim his first F1 win had the race continued.
The car that drove the team to success that year was the TG184 – equipped with a carbon fibre monocoque, a Hart 415T straight 4 turbo engine, and a unique double rear wing setup. Various modifications were done on the rear wing, and the car saw a podium finish in the final race of the season under the hands of A. Senna.
- a full detailed, multi-material kit featuring white metal, resin, etching, metal turned parts, rubber tires, decals and various cords allowing for maximum representation of the original vehicle.
- aluminum turned parts used for center locknut and wheel shaft.
- front nose/rear cowl can be removed, allowing full view of the detailed interior after completion.
- pre-printed sponsor logos featured on tires.
- initial run of kit includes a limited 1/12 Scale A.S. Driver (Driving Style) figure – helmet and decals included with figure.
