23rd on 14th at the 24: the Porsche 917K
Back in 1970, in June 14th to be precise, a guardian red bodywork with modern white stripes and number 23 at the sides passed first under the chequered flag at Le Mans circuit. It was none other than the Porsche 917K, with hundreds of horses pushing hard under the hood, getting his well-deserved reward after 24 exhausting hours under heavy rain pushing the limits on each one of the 6860 corners of that race...

Now in 2014, in April 30th to be precise, a red box with a modern design and the reference MFH-K400 at the sides arrives to SpotModel wharehouse. It's none other than the kit of the Porsche 917K winner of Le Mans race on June 14th 1970 by Model Factory Hiro, in 1/24 scale, with hundreds of pieces included under the lid. It's really a well-deserved reward to be enjoyed EVEN MORE if it's raining outside, that pushes the limits of precision moulding on each one of the pieces :)

Zero Paints: Paints set - Audi A4 DTM Team Schaeffler - Yellow + White + Green - 3x30ml - for Airbrush

Reference: ZP-1272

All paints are pre-thinned for airbrush use, to a consistency suitable for airbrushes with nozzle sizes of 0.3mm upwards. It is NOT recommended to overthin the paint: mixing too much thinner will increase the chance of the paint becoming too hot during application, thus affecting/melting the plastic below the primer. If unsure, we recommend you to test it first before applying to your kit.
