This Tameo white metal kit is a replica of a Penske Pc17 Chevrolet Indy race car driven by Rick Mears (race winner / pole winner) in Car #5 in the 1988 Indianapolis 500. Kit includes photo etched parts, decals and instructions. Photos of the actual car are shown still sealed in the clear plastic packaging and may not be clear. Kit must be completely assembled.
These models reproduce the single-seater racing cars that participated in all the American Indy motor racing circuits at the end of the 90s. These models continue to be produced using the same technical characteristics and qualities used at the time. The main body and the most important components are manufactured entirely in white metal. The kits include an instruction sheet, a photo of the original racing car and a set of decals.
