Newsletter 154: Second is the first loser...

Second is the first loser...

Second is the first loser...
Do you know that feeling when you've been waiting for a long time, you're about to get it, you're almost seeing the finish line, and suddenly out of the blue someone overtakes you by the inside and leave you with a handful of nothing? As Senna said, "second is the first loser", so pay lots of attention to this week products because most of them are reeditions and they're going away faster than the shine of the qualification tyres :)

After so many years... the reeditions of Senna's MP4/7 and MP4/8 are finally here!! Two gorgeous kits with incredible lines, launched back to market by Tamiya in a limited reedition available for a very short time.

Also from Tamiya comes this week the Group 4 Porsche 934 RSR sponsored by Vaillant, the Gulf F1 GTR Long Tail from Fujimi, and the R-SV version of the Lamborghini Murcielago from Aoshima.

A few years before Senna phenomenon, Nelson Piquet and Riccardo Patresse drove the BT50 now reproduced by Tameo in their new low cost product ranges. A perfect reference for getting started in the world of 1/43 scale metal kits, with a winner price and all of Tameo renowned quality. As every low cost, of course they'll fly ;)

And if you preffer flying over two wheels, we've got back the Freddie Spencer and Wayne Gardner's NSR500 decals at Spanish GP 1986, and guess what... there are just a few units!!

So, remember Senna's words and... don't be the first to miss these reeditions!! :D
