The Tamiya 1/12 Honda RA273 with Photo Etched Parts Model Kit from the plastic car model kits range accurately recreates the real life Classic 3 Litre F1 racer. This model requires paint and glue to complete.

In 1966, Formula 1 regulations were changed and indicated a move from cars with 1.5 litre engines to those with 3 litres. Having finally tasted success with the 1.5 litre RA272 the year before, the green Honda engineers unfortunately had to start from scratch again, and the RA273 was not ready until the Italian GP in the Autumn of 1966. With Richie Ginther at the wheel, the car proved to be more powerful than its competitors, and Ginther ended the season in a respectable fourth place. After running through most of the 1967 season, the RA273 eventually gave way to the much more improved RA300.

Historic 3 liter V12 engine precisely reproduced complete with fuel pipe and plug wire details
Moveable front/rear suspensions featuring metal coil springs
Life-like hollow rubber tires with accurate tread patterns
Photo-etched parts included for air funnel, brake discs, radiator, and other parts
Metal transfers realistically depict emblems and meters
Kit and markings depict No.18 Richie Ginther, with markings for No.11 John Surtees

We also stock the full range of Tamiya Paints, Glues and Modelling Accessories required to complete this model.
