PistenBully 400
400 4F

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.

The kit is available either as regular PB 400 or as PB 400 4F.

The PB400 4F features a new back pack behind the driver cabin. The reason is that an exhaust after treatment system for the "Tier 4 final" regulations is installed at the original. This system needs more space than the "old" exhaust system of the regular PB400 - therefore the new, larger back pack.

· drivers cabin (5 parts: sides (2x), front, back, roof)
