Toy Fair 2018
We have just returned from the Nuremberg International Toy Fair, the biggest event in Europe for scale modeling manufacturers. In this fair they present all the new releases for this year and... how awesome are them all!!!

Just a few words on a few of them: Tamiya has specially surprised us with the Ferrari SF70H in 1/20 scale that you can already preoder at SpotModel (and that we will receive by the end of February), the Ferrari LaFerrari with the body moulded in yellow plastic, the new laquer paints, a fantastic range of scribers, and also the reedition of the Caterham Super Seven with BDR engine in 1/12 scale; Belkits presented the 2017 season Ford Fiesta RS WRC; Revell showed the Ford GT 2017 along with all the product reissues from other years, as is the case of the 1/16 scale Porsche 356 cabrio or the VW T1 used by Porsche in the races of that time.

Which one excited you the most? Don't worry, you will have them all at SpotModel! :)
