This is a finished model of the Honda F-1 RA272 '65, which originally appeared in Tamiya's catalog as Item 20043. The RA272 used parts made by Honda from nose to tail, and it represented one of the manufacturer's finest achievements when the car piloted by Richie Ginther took the checkered flag in first place in the 1965 Mexican GP. In fact, it was the first ever Japanese-made car to win a Grand Prix race, which guarantees its history in the annals of Japanese racing. The car was powered by a 1.5-liter V12 engine which was situated longitudinally in the rear of the machine.
