Newsletter 157: Big and cool!
And since we're talking about big and cool things, this week we also have another two big and cool kits, a new Ferrari GTO and the Porsche 917 both in 1/12 scale (that is, VERY big!) from Model Factory Hiro (that is, VERY cool!), to tag along the 1/12 models we introduced you last weeks.
Tabu has released new and freshly printed decals for the Tamiya Lotus 107 kit, at the same time that Studio27 has reedited in a limited edition the carbon fiber decals for the MP4/4. Ok, they're not really big, but... what about cool? A lot!!
Equally big (over A4 size) and cool are the historic photography books from Model Factory Hiro, with three new issues covering the history of the FW15c and many 1968 Formula 1 GPs.
And what about Eddie Lawson's YZR500? Big Eddie, and utterly cool kit!!!
Go big and cool with SpotModel!
