Newsletter 159: Risk is addictive...

Risk is addictive...

Risk is addictive...
...words pronounced by Carlos Checa, but we can perfectly imagine them on every championship pilot's lips.

Carlos Checa took his risks going back to Yamaha in 2006, and now Reji Models releases a reedition of the decals and transkit to build Checa's Yamaha with Tamiya kit as a base. For perfect results, also use the Zero Paints set for exact colors ;)

Do you prefer not taking any risks with a circuit bike? Ok, Hobby Design superdetailing set for the Ducati Panigale have just come to light, with a good pile of resins and photoetches only for true junkies.

For those who are more into cars, the new references from Racing Decals 43 for the McLaren MP4-12C and the BMW M3, all of them in stock, are also a winning bet without any risks ;)

Studio 27 has also reviewed and reedited their Arrows A2 kit, and if you don't want to risk missing yours... get it now!!

You're right, Carlos: risk is addictive, but more addictive is scale modelling...

...and even more at SpotModel!!! :D
