Williams FW12 1988 Silverstone special cowling

Postby Eric1968 » Fri Jan 10, 2020 3:55 am

Hello everybody

I've just baught the Studio 27 transkit for the Williams FW12 in order to built the German version with special cowling without air box and low rear wing.

Image

But in the S27 instruction notice, I discover that Williams may have also test the special cowling but with high rear wing

Image

I can't find any pictures of this silverstone test. Does anyone have picture of it ?

My attention to detail keeps getting worse! I've seen pics of the low wing run in Germany and never noticed the different cowling. Now I think I need one of those kits.

Bossy maybe your memory is not wrong: I think there are pics with high air intake and low wing.
But should check...
anyway it would not be that weird not noticing it: after all we had seen that rollover/cover combination for two years (FW11, 11B) so it looed familiar and might have passed our radar, no?

ED:
I always saw this:

maybe the other spec's pics have just aired recently

Actually that's why I always have a doubt with S27 instruction. During the German GP, Patrese made test with low wing and special cowling whereas Mansell made test with regular cowling and low wing. But in the S27 instructions, they put Mansell with the special cowling. S27 is often slipshod.
