Newsletter 188: I love you!!!

I love you!!!

I love you!!!
The intoxicating emotion and ecstasy that pilots feel when they win a race, or even more when it's a World Championship, extends without any doubt to the machine that helped them achieve it. Triumph and all the magic and unforgettable moments shared with it surely made some of them whisper "I love you" to their engines :)

We can totally imagine how much love Ogier feels for HIS Volkswagen Polo, the one that took him to the top. As scale modelers, we turn that love into desire... the desire to build that car that is now part of the history, that scale kit that IS now at our warehouse: the Polo WRC by Belkits, the one that we've been desiring for SO LONG ;))))

Talking about huge amounts of love, that exactly what the new Decalcas brand put on the decals they've just designed for the M23. Along also comes a new issue by Komakai with essential pictures of the MP4/2, and four new decals by Racing Decals 43: one for Heller DS3, another for the NSR500, and two that perfectly fits the also new BMW Z4 GT3 2014 and Mercedes benz SLS AMG by Fujimi.

Also, you can use the SpotModel measuring cups for mixing paints... or even for making a toast to the new models!!! ;)

Get your Polo now, and when it arrives home... don't let anyone hear you whispering "I love you" to your box ;)))))
