24 Heures du Mans

24 Heures du Mans
The 24 Hours of Le Mans, the world's most famous endurance race, is about to begin once again this weekend. Will it be another victory from the invincible Audi? Or will Toyota rise up to the challenge? Or will Porsche achieve a crushing victory in their return to the french tarmac? ;)

During the 70's, Porsche swept his competition off Le Mans with the 917 Long Tail, and Model Factory Hiro wants to reminisce those days with the edition of TWO astonishing versions of the Long Tail in 1/12 scale. Fancy one? :D

Besides, and for those of us who take one or two naps while watching the 24 hours, we have this week some other new and VEEEEERY interesting products: the tobacco decals for several F1 Ferraris and McLarens are back in stock (but you'd better be fast!), and the limited editions from Studio27 of the carbon fibre pattern decals for Tamiya's Yamaha YZR and Ducati Desmosedici have just arrived, along with the freshly baked photoetches for the Aoshima and Fujimi F1 GTR Long Tail, and the latest sprays from Tamiya.

You have 24 hours full of temptations ahead... will you resist ALL of them??? :D

Tamiya: Spray - Pure Red TS-86 - 100ml

Reference: TAM85086

These cans of spray paint are extremely useful for painting large surfaces. The paint is a synthetic lacquer that cures in a short period of time. Each can contains 100ml of paint, which is enough to fully cover 2 or 3, 1/24 scale sized car bodies. Tamiya spray paints are not affected by acrylic or enamel paints. Therefore, following the painting of the entire assembly, details can be added or picked out using enamel and/or acrylic paints. By combining three different paints, the decoration of plastic models will become simpler and more effective.
