PistenBully 400

Body Kit for
Pistenking Chassis
Scale 1:12

With this model kit a Kässbohrer PistenBully 400 can be built for the Pistenking chassis. Of course also your Graupner (Kyosho) PistenBully or Kyosho Blizzard can be upgraded to a model of the PistenBully 400. The kit is based on original data and allows a scale representation of the original in 1:12.

The cabin is built up of 5 separate parts to accurately model the characteristic shape of the lower part of the cabin. The cabin of the original is built up the same way. Besides an optimal match with the original also a higher stability of the cabin is achieved.
