Penelope Pitlane News


1952 Thin Wall Special MkIV
The Model Kit







The kit includes Lightweight one piece precision moulded resin body and separate driver, clear wind shield. 40 white numbers, black roundels and Thin Wall Special decals



History
With the dissapointment of the V16 BRM Project Tony Vandervell acquired a series of Ferraris, this is the last of those and is known as the MkIV (although only 3rd actual chassis).
It started life as a long wheelbase 375 Indianapolis chassis. It was re-bodied in Britain and fitted with Goodyear brake discs. This car would become one of the most famous cars in Britain driven by the likes of Gonzalez, Taruffi, Farina, Hawthorn & Collins. With Farina at the wheel it became the first car to lap Silverstone at over 100mph.
Colour Scheme
Overall Ford Meadow Green, white numbers on black roundals either side of nose & tail. Thin Wall Special one either side of bonnet, Ferrari badge front centre of nose.
Penelopes Tips
To build the complete kit we recoment using:
SMJ chassis with choice of slimline motor
CL wheels front & rear with PEW4 spoked inserts & GP tyres from the Penelope Pitlane range.



Available to order as a body kit or complete kit with chassis & running gear from

We would liked to be able to write this email before, to announce our second car, that almost a year of suffering we have done, but due to an external problem with some pieces we can not present until now. Problem has been resolved and improve our calendar.

Having said that, we are pleased to present the reference M-02, made in high quality polyurethane resin at strict 1/32 scale: the Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Mille Miglia winner in 1938, handled by Clemente Biondetti and Aldo Stefani as copilot. Car in which we maintain our philosophy hundred percent handmade, without computer aids, and also enhance by making the chassis, being strictly mechanical parts the only made out of our workshop, becoming one of the few artisans who make all production in his workshop.

> Racer/Silverline News; 275GTB & 312P
Posted by JEXY1 - 24-10-14 15:17 - 5 comments


News from Racer/Silverline;

There are a couple of new livery announcements that we expect from Racer and Silverline before the end of the year.

275GTB Maranello Concessionaires
Le Mans 24hrs 1966
P.Courage / R.Pike
Ref; RCSL24
Retail £125.00




First up we have the beautiful 275GTB Maranello Concessionaires entry into the 1966 Le Mans. For those of you who didn't know Maranello was the official UK importer of Ferrari for many years and took an active role in motorsports entering many of the world's top sports car events. Note the car does not have the prancing horse on its sides, it was only the official Italian Factory team that was allowed to do that at the time. Featuring Slot.it components throughout this is a lovely handcrafted masterpiece from Racer's Silverline range.

312P N.A.R.T. Team
Daytona 24hrs 1970
#24 S.Posey / M.Parkes
Ref; RCR69
Retail £190.00




The second release is the 312P Coupe as raced in the 1970 Daytona 24hrs by the N.A.R.T. team. I've got to say that Ferrari's stop gap coupe introduced in 1969 before the 512S, is one of the prettiest sports racing cars ever made. What the car lacked in overall results was in my opinion more than made up for in the looks department! These resin hand built models as always feature Slot.it internals and are sort after by Ferrari collectors the world over.
