Ok I did it, after some e-bay hunting, I scored my 1st Mclaren #59 Ueno Clinic, for the price of $44.90US plus shipping. It arrived as you see in pic safe & sound, all the way from Taiwan to Australia, it was well packed :happy .
I would love some info on it as I have just stepped into the Mclaren diecast world.

Congrats on your First Mclaren Mike. It's a beautiful model and a lemans winner so you picked a good one to start. :cheers Which one is next? :giggle
Thanks Tom.
Well yours were the first Macs I ever layed eyes on, and just feel in love with them, also thanks for the early tips you gave me.

Next will be a hard one for me to find, the LOCTITE it is. :giggle yes there will be a next one.

Also have my eyes on a few 1:43 ones as well, Felixs Yellow corn Mac im looking at getting as well.

Congrats on the new addition, there are some impressive McLaren collections :danbana :danbana :danbana

Hope to have my 1st one soon aswell, they are soooooo nice lookin :giggle
Congrats Mike! If anyone is to get just one McLaren F1 then this is the one. It is the most significant of all the race versions as it won the 1995 24hrs of LeMans outright, (as the guys have said above), an amazing achievement as it was the first time the car had competed at LeMans and it was very close indeed in spec to the road car. In fact, due to the engine air intake restrictors required on the race car (part of a equivalency formula thought up by the organisers of LM) the race car had less power than the road car.

I have the same model except that mine has a two plane rear wing whereas the one you got has a single plane rear wing. the 2 plane wing is correct on the 1995 LM cars, but the single plane wing is correct for the 1996 cars. Unfortunately UT when they re-released the 1995 Mac's after they did the 1996 cars, did not revert back to the 2 plane wing, but apart from this oversight it is an accurate model.

Here is a pic of my version for comparison:

1995 and 1996 McLaren F1 Comparison.

Actually, UT re-did three of the short tails, the #59 Ueno Clinic, the #51 Harrods (Derek and Justin Bell/Ayrton Senna Memorial Car), and the #24 Gulf.

Here is a pictoral of the #51 and the differences between 1995's and 1996's:
