Newsletter 298: Safety first

Safety first

Safety first
When a race car goes off the track, sparks can fly around the driver, ending in complicated situations, fires, explosions, ...

To minimize these unpleasant scenarios, the electric cut-off systems were invented, interrupting the electric flow to every device on the car, and the fire extinguishing firing systems, which activate a fire extinguisher that helps putting out any possible flame that may light.

Track marshalls identify these security systems thanks to stickers that have an "E" and a "lightning bolt", and the lads at Decalcas offer us a sheet of decals for 1/20 and 1/24 scales with assorted designs of these icons, so important to give more realism to our models.

Safety is a first for drivers, and... safety is granted for modelers relaying on Decalcas and SpotModel :)
