64th scale replica of the P34 F1 car Jody Scheckter #3 version without ELF logos
Diecast body and engine casting with plastic chassis replica of the P34 Tyrrell F1 race car from the 1976 and 1977 seasons. This version is the earlier version without the giant bug catcher air scoop over the V8 Ford Cosworth engine. Fairly accurate version of the car with black plastic driver molded into the cockpit. Nice generic version of the car, and worth the hunt to find. Now I'm waiting for the #4 version....
Nice Unusual Choice for HW!
HW previously did a generic based on this car, so it's nice to see them do the real thing, making a great choice of model for the range (it being an unusual choice AND a good one, since HW is all about speed and so was the real car!) The construction desig is clever too, with more diecast bits than usual and it's a nice chunky model. I do question the tiny front wheels a bit, though, they're a bit too small IMO - which is ironic, because it's usually too-big rear ones that we complain about with HW! Nice model!
Tyrrell P 34 from Hot Wheels
Nice car for the scale and price. Hard to get all the details in 64th scale that a serious collector would want on a piece this small, still worth the hunt if you collect F1 cars. Nice paint and tampos and with diecast body and engine casting, heavier than I expected. I would expect a #4 version is in the works for a later release.
