Newsletter 175: Green...

Green...

Green...
Along with the spring, there comes the green color. Everything turns green: the fields, the gardens, the streets... even cars and scale models! Yes, yes, scale models too, with the Zero Paints Pramac Green for the Ducati bikes. Green with envy, the Lotus 79 switches from black to Martini Green with the help of Tameo. And the opposite applies too: the Vaillant Porsche 934, switching from green with white letters, to white with green letters, thanks to Reji decals.

Studio27 sent us a colourful bouquet of new products, such as the photoetch for the Tyrrell 002 by Ebbro, the impressive Lotos decals for the Ford Fiesta at the Acropolis Rally and EIL decals for the DS3 at Sanremo, in addition to the carbon fibre decals set specifically designed for Fujimi FW14B.

A few more things that are not green but really cool: the matte grey and the beige color formulated by Zero Paints for the Ducati chassis and the Harley Davidson FLH Classic in that order, the decoration for the Camel Porsche 962C by Tameo, the four-leaf clovers sprouting on the Alfa Romeo 179 and the gorgeous Ferrari 156/85 by Tameo, all in 1/43 scale, and finishing with Renaissance and the decoration dressing Solberg's C4 at the Condroz Rally.

And wrapping up this spring newsletter, a new feature in our website: the new "order consolidation" alternative in the shipping options. Now, if you have a pending order to be shipped via Courier Services, you can add items and save shipping costs.

Get into spring at SpotModel.... your friends will turn green with envy!! :D
