I looked around and I can't find this Formula car anywhere?
I suspect it's a Fiat Formula 1 car.

Maybe made in the '90s?

Thanks!

Hornby Hobbies is stamped on the back.

Figure it might help date it.

Dates to the early '90s. "Vintage" but not from a particularly coveted period for 1/32 collectors given how crude the cars often were compared to what was to come in the "Fly revolution" which completely changed acceptable standards for 1/32 model racing cars.

#11 on the wing? Could be from a different car. I would have said old school SCX – Hornby for sure! Those old F1 cars are cool!!
She's real fine, my 409!!!

We ran this line of cars as a class back in 1994 when our club started. This Ferrari, Williams, Lotus, Lamborghini, Minardi, and perhaps a couple others, with different liveries. Ran with magnets. Was a fun, equal class. I kept my Lotus, and think I have what's left of a Williams in the junk box somewhere.
