Mmmmmmmmmmmmm...
The secret of every good stew is quite simple: lots of first-class ingredients. And this week we have a succulent one... Do you want to know the recipe? :)

First add (to your taste :D) a few bunches of the Montecarlo Rally decals by Renaissance, available at your kitchen pantry in a few weeks.

Then add three very very fresh pieces of the Alfa Romeo 179 announced by Studio27, cut in 1/20 scale, and lightly fry them with the tasty Model Factory Hiro books about the McLaren. Slowly add the Surtees from This Way Up minced to 1/43 scale and the Ferrari F500 from Tameo (stirring carefully), and finaly spice up with the colourful DTM M3 decals.

At the table, we finally marry all this with the new acrylics from Tamiya and the chrome colors from Alclad, and...

Bon apptit!! :D
