As a child!!!

As a child!!!
No, we've not moved into Gundam :) We are civil vehicles scale modelers, we love building scale models, and we enjoy our obsession for reaching top realism, top precision, excellence in every detail, perfection. But... what if just for one time we enjoyed it just like children, building without rules, anarchically, just for pure fun, doing anything we wanted each time and letting our imagination run wild? I'm sure we would get the funniest results :D

I can perfectly picture the Revell BMW i8 turned into a transformer, proudly showing off all the new Zero Paints colors: his original ones (Crystal White, Ionic Silver, Sophisto Grey) and the ones which doesn't belong to it (kevlar, aluminum, Erdbeerrot), painting a lot more with our favorites ;)) Watch those firing fingers!!!

The new decals by Shunko Models are incredibly cool, and the solution to bring back to life some of your old Tamiya kits: Ducati 888, FW07, FW13B, CLK-GTR D2, Jordan J191. But among all of them, my true favorite are the B192 decals by Tabu, including eeeevery blue camel logo. It has so many that you can even split them with your friends :)

Just imagine: all these novelties, inside a SpotModel box at your doorstep... Wouldn't that make you happy as a child? :D
