1933 Napier-Railton Models
Midway through building the first model I was asked to build a second model. Both are now complete. The models use a combination of brass construction and 3D printed parts.
This model is based on the prototype as it exists today which includes rear disc brakes.
Chassis details ...
The rear disc brakes were added when the car retired from racing and was used for parachute testing!
The rear suspension has both Hartford friction shock absorbers and Luvax hydraulic shock absorbers.
The radiator cap is designed to open and close just like the one on the prototype.
The mufflers were a requirement of the Brooklands race track.
There are two spark plugs for each of the twelve cylinders. Two magnetos provide the electrical impulses.
