Rocket (noun.)
A rocket is officially defined as "the kind of car that, in addition to having several exhaust pipes, puts your hair standing on end even when you see it from afar", and today we're going to put your hair standing on end with a few of them :)

First, the Ferrari 458 LB Works Performance, a true rocket that you can now recreate using Hobby Design transkit on top of the Fujimi Kit.

More rockets to follow up: BMW M1 Group A with the France map decoration racing at Le Mans 1980, with its spiky lines, a enormous spoiler, and an engine sound that scares you from its beauty. The decals are a Studio27 reedition for Revell kit, in a limited edition.

Next, a Spanish rocket, and a classic one: the Pegaso Z-102 Spider that started to put hairs standing back on 1950. Drop dead gorgeous, featuring a fully detailed engine, and three different decorations. Be careful, last units available.

And for deserts, the classic rocket, the one you must have on the shelf: the Porsche 911 SC Group 4 from Arena, now with two new decorations from the Mile Miglia and Montecarlo.

The whole SpotModel team wishes you a happy and full of rockets 2015!!! :D
