We recently got our hands on a sample model of the 1:18 Minichamps McLaren F1 GTR Gulf Racing #33. Seems Minichamps has dusted of their moulds and are producing new specimens as of late in street and race trim. Through the example here is diecast metal with opening parts and the photos show a decent model, in reality, the moulds are old and dated. There isn’t any update to them. You can’t even keep the doors in the open position without the aid of a third party apparatus. I can understand the excitement of getting this cherish race car in scale, but Minichamps retails are slightly off for what they offer. What happened to this brand? They were once the leader of the pack. They pale in comparison to where they once were. Shameful. Enjoy the pics!
