Newsletter 181: Fast, faster, fastest...

Fast, faster, fastest...

Fast, faster, fastest...
It happens that we love speed, either at the wheel, on a bike... or even browsing the web. That's why we struggle each and every day to make SpotModel website... faster and faster!!!

We've been tightening the nuts at the server for a while, and we've done it again: our website goes 0 to 100% in 0.78 seconds, making us one of the fastest websites in the world (faster than 93% of websites tested worldwide). So, when you reach our store, you can fly as fast as your eyes, your brain and your curiosity permits ;)

And now, moving fast through some of the new products arrived this week at our (your) windows: the F1 GTR Long Tail sponsored by Loctite scale model kit by Aoshima, the reedited Safari version of the Lancia Stratos HF by Hasegawa, several carbon fibre patterns by Studio27 for the Ferrari F2003-GA and the Subaru Impreza WRC. Model Factory Hiro releases the second issue of 1971 Grand Prix book, and reedits for a very short time the BT52 in 1/20 scale. Aizu comes rushing with two ultrathin masking tapes in 1.5mm and 0.4mm, and Hobby Design brings joy to our lives with gorgeous and hyperdetailed Sparco bucket seats. Wow, that was fast indeed! :D

If you loose our pace anytime, you can always get into our slipstream at Facebook, in our newsletters, at Google+, at our blog, or at Twitter. But if you're also a speed freak like us... dare to follow us!!! ;))))
