A little bird told us...

A little bird told us...
Our little bird is a source of information, whispering communicator and early reporter of every manufacturer's undergoing secret projects for the delight of us all modellers, and it's eager to get interesting news.

Today, our little bird told us that there is a manufacturer that is already developing some gorgeous improvement and detail up for Tamiya Honda RC213V. We can not tell you the name of the manufacturer yet, but as a hint let's say it starts with "Top"...

Fly, little bird, fly... and brings more whisperings to SpotModel :)
