Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Built to demonstrate Fergusonís four wheel drive system, the P99 was one of the last front-engined Grand Prix cars completed and saw most of its competition in non-championship races. The kit offers three options; the International Trophy where Fairman retired with transmission failure, the British Grand Prix where he was disqualified due to receiving push starts and Moss then took the car over for an extended test, only to be pulled in, and the Gold Cup where Moss demonstrated the advantages of 4WD in damp conditions and won comfortably. The kit parts are well cast and close attention will be needed to the instructions as certain versions need certain small parts fitting while others donít. The decals are clearly printed and the instructions show all three race versions, though they donít tell you which is which!
Reasonably well cast white metal kits that build with ease. Open wheeled subjects usually accurate, road cars not always so. With hand-built models again single seaters usually better. Made in England.
