23 November 2014

Pre-Add Powered by Penelope Pitlane
2015 will see the re-introduction of the range of Pre-Add 1/32nd scale resin body kits first released during the early 1990s and mid 2000 by Mac Pinches. Under the new ownership of Pendle Slot Racing, the range of 25 bodies will receive a careful make-over whilst staying true to the original shapes created by Mac. The original masters will be carefully cleaned and detailed where necessary in order to bring them up to 2015 standards expected by today's modellers. The bodies will then be matched up to an appropriate Penelope Pitlane chassis and have mountings moulded in place.
It is intended that 5 or 6 bodies from the range will be re-issued during 2015. Starting with a body originally released back in early 2000 which Mac himself then re-mastered but never put back into production.

Pendle Slot Racing have had a very close working relationship with Steve Ward at Penelope Pitlane, ever since Steve first contacted us to discuss his ideas to create a range of 1/32 scale body kits, chassis & detailing parts. 42 Body kits later and the range is now widely regarded as being the most complete scratch building range.
We were therefore delighted to be asked by Steve to take on the range as he felt the time was right to retire. We have retained Steve's services on a part time basis to help us continue his great work.
Initially we will re-issue some of the older kits that have been sold out for sometime now. These include the Healey SR, Connaught and one of my personal favourites the Birkin Bentley.
There are also plans at to introduce several new chassis including an Angle winder and a slimline chassis to accept a short shaft slimline motor and we are pleased to say that these plans are at an advanced stage. New bodies will also be added to the range at some point during 2015 to complement those that are to be re-issued.
At this stage Pendle Slot Racing would like to put on record our thanks to both Mac Pinches and Steve Ward for their help in making this happen and for having the faith in Pendle Slot Racing to continue their good work.

> Slot.it News - Porsche 956LH n.34 Le Mans 1984
Posted by JEXY1 - 10-11-14 15:26 - 5 comments

News from Slot.it;

Porsche 956LH n.34
Le Mans 1984
Drivers: L.Perkins, P.Brock
Ref; CA02g
Official selling date: November 14th

New body: 17 gr.
New chassis: CS02t-60b

The 956 model was created by Porsche in 1982 to compete in the new Group C category. It was replaced in 1985 by the similar 962 model.

It was one of the most successful racing cars ever: it won four 24h Le Mans competitions consecutively, in 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, and the World Car Manufacturer title three times.
The car was powered by a 2.650 cc engine. Its monocoque aluminium chassis was new for Porsche, previously known for their space frame design. Through this change, the regulated minimum weight of 800 Kg was reached.
Car n.34 was sponsored by Australian tyre retailer Bob Jane T-Marts. It raced the 1984 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans driven by two Australian drivers, Larry Perkins and Peter Brock.
