Body: Fola (Peter Berg) McLaren M6A - a little too wide scalewise, but good looking anyhow ;D 
Details: most parts, incl. decals are home made. Tyre decals are from German Werks.
Chassis: Fola NSF-917 modified with narrow side pans etc
 
Built to Danish DMRU Classic rules with foam tyres. Body colour is a bit more orange in real (Papaya-gul) but this is hard to catch on photos.

A classic! The first car of McLaren dominance!

VERY PRETTY! Is that a carbon-fiber body?

If you will excuse some rivet-counting from a rabid Bruce McLaren fan, Bruce never raced with a peak on his helmet. Just a plain silver Bell, no peak, and most times a strip of duct tape across the top of his goggles.

Pretty awesome in my book!

 

An M6A in ANY color is a sight to behold IMO.
