Nice looking car. Wonder why they don't make F1 cars in 1/24 or 1/25? Jim

Jim, MPC made a 1/24 1963 Lotus, 1963 Watson Roadster, and a 1974 McClaren, along with the Dan Gurney special and the turbine car. Monogram also has a an Indy racer in 1/25 scale. These are a little hard to find, but we can always hope for re-issues! VR Russ
