1:43 scale Ferrari 312PB
We are taking pre-orders now, for K430, K431 and K432

■The Ferrari 312PB had been raced in the endurance race in the early ’70s. The open body prototype racing machine is coming in 1/43 scale kit from MFH. 
The 312PB, which debuted in 1971, had been upgraded with many improved parts like the power of engine was upgraded, the gear box was separated, chassis was strengthened, the fuel tank was also separated, and the cowl shape was also changed thanks to the low-profile tyres. Also by strengthening the team management, They won all races that the team raced at that season, except the 24-hour race at Circuit de la Sarthe because the team didn’t enter that race.

■This kit is based on the configuration of ’72 endurance race and ’73 Circuit de la Sarthe 24-hour race. The kit perfectly reproduce the classical shape of the cowl, from the straight-cut like front fender to the little rose rear wing, and the square body end, in the tiny but detailed 1/43 scale model.

Please enjoy the difference between the ’73 model and the others, through the driving lamp at the nose section, and the rear fender and more. The fabric seats which can be commonly found in the racing machines at that era, will be in the form of fabric pattern decal sheet and is included in this kit.
