Newsletter 143: We LOVE summer !! :)
Everything dry faster (paints, lacquers, glue, ...), coatings get smoother and glossier, the heat makes decals fit tighter along the curves, sprays are much easier to use, ... but over all, you have PLENTY OF TIME for that! You're on holidays, days are longer (and people go to the beach :), nights are warmer (and crickets give them that relaxing touch :)... just add a beer at sunset, a bunch of experiments to try like the following ones, and definitely... there are just a few better things in this world ;)
For those of you that want to go one step further without too many risks, the first two wonderful resin kits from Arena Modelli featuring the 911SC, with a very economic price and really perfect to get into the resin world.
For rally lovers willing to improve the Toyota Celica ST165, there are new photoetches and decals from Studio27. Still scared of carbon patterns? Nothing better to overcome your fears than F1 GTR Long Tail decals, also from Studio27.
Do you want some rock 'n' roll? Want to try white metal? Want to enjoy dozens of tiny photoetches? Then the Ferrari 126 C4-M2 from Tameo is just for you, with its wonderful fittings and its hundreds of parts: the perfect kit to earn your modeling stripes, and to enjoy countless delightful evenings building it :) But... drink responsibly those evenings, or you'll end up with a real mess :-P
And if you already master all of that, or just want to indulge yourself, then it's time for you to go top class and get yourself an awesome 1/12 from Model Factory Hiro, such as the Senna Lotus 98T.
Enjoy your modeling summer at SpotModel!! :D
