Unboxing: Tamiya Tyrrell P34 Six Wheeler Monaco GP 20053

Today i’m going to unbox the Tamiya Tyrrell P34 Six Wheeler Monaco GP in 1/20th scale.

In the 1976 F1 World Championships, Tyrrell P34 six-wheeler made its debut and demonstrated outstanding performance throughout the season. In the following season, P34 obtained First National City Bank as its main sponsor and changed its cowl painting to blue and white two-tone. The P34 in this season featured full engine cowling to improve aero-dynamics and was driven by P. Depailler and R. Peterson. Tyrrell encountered trouble when the development of P34’s unique front tires stagnated as a result of the tire war between Michelin and Goodyear, but they continued their efforts to win by making minor-alterations to their P34 machines throughout the season.

  • 1/20 scale assembly model kit depicts Tyrrell P34 as it appeared in the Monaco GP, 1977 with the same half engine cowling of the previous season.
  • Overall length: 201mm, overall width: 101mm
  • Model captures the unique form of the Tyrrell P34 with rear seat cowl, front brake cooling air duct, stabilizer, rear wing side plate, and taillight. Ford Cosworth DFV engine portrayed with the utmost detail.
  • Gear box, ignition, and wheels are all precisely recreated.
  • Driver figure included.
  • Markings included for recreation of two machines: #3, R. Peterson and #4, P. Depailler.

The Tamiya Tyrrell P34 Six Wheeler Monaco GP comes in the usual Tamiya box with the finished model up front with some information about the model. The Box is the small size format. On the side of the box some more information about the car.
