The McLaren MP4/2 was one of my favourite F1 cars, so I decided to make a little diorama out of it.  The models are in 1/20 scale, consists of both the Studio27 and BeeMax MP4/2B models from the 1985 season.  I included some of the team personnel at that time in my diorama, including Ron Dennis, John Barnard, Joe Rameriz and the two drivers, Niki Lauda and Alain Prost.   The pit garage is not completely finished yet but hopefully will be completed within the next week - I've been working on this project since last August.  Hope you like what you see.

Happy new year, just want to share some new images for my little project.  This time it's the Lotus team from the same 1985 season.

Nope.  He'd run out of cigarettes so he was trying to scrounge some from Lotus as he preferred JPS to Marlboro.   :smoking:   ;)    :lol:

What's Johnny White doing there with Keke, Alain, Niki and Ayrton? And Elio seems to have struck a good deal there with Keke, a pack of fags in exchange for a data readout from Honda!!
