Tamiya really is the standard for injection molded Formula 1 kits. Molded in yellow and silver plastic with chrome wheels,
four nice rubber tires are also included. The chrome on the rear wheels doesn't quite cover all the way, but it's really hard
to tell. Detail is crisp with no flash on any of the parts.
The instructions are the usual Tamiya instruction book. Nicely done with 16 assembly steps, photos of the assembled model are spaced through out the instructions. Color callouts are giving for Tamiya paints and a 4-view decal placement guide is on the last page.
The decals in my kit were yellowed and even after bleaching in a window, were unusable. One version of the car can be done with either driver, Alain Prost or Rene Arnoux.
I used the Indycals replacement decals.
