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