Xmas is coming ...
It's been a really busy week, Christmas is in the air and our manufacturers have been making some very interesting "candy" :D

From the decals deparment: the new references from Shunko Models for the Renault RE30B, the BT50 and the KTM250 from Tamiya are already in stock; a beautiful decoration from Lois for Le Mans 1979 Porsche 911 turbo from Tamiya; and the super colored decorations from Racing Decals 43 for the Skoda Fabia and Ford Fiesta from the World Rally Championship.

Moving to the kits, and back again with the new 911 from Lois, but now in 1/43 scale version kit from Renaissance; even more Fujimi kits, such as P34 from the polemic 1977 Japan Grand Prix, or the Le Mans 1968-69 GT40; and Revell's most expected kits, the 2012 DTM BMW M3 are already available at SpotModel.

For desserts, a couple of Hobby Design photoetches for the Gujimi Fiat 500 and the Hasegawa Mini Cooper.

And in a few days? New products from Zero Paints, and lots, lots, looooooots of new kits from Fujimi.

Have you been really nice this year? :D

Renaissance Models: Marking / livery 1/24 scale - Porsche 934 Turbo RSR Group 4 sponsored by Lois #84 - Anne-Charlotte Verney + Ren Metge + Patrick Bardinon - 24 Hours Le Mans 1979 - water slide decals and assembly instructions - for Revell references REV07031 and REV07032, or Tamiya references TAM24328 and TAM24334

Renaissance Models Reference: TK24-373

This Lois decoration used by one of the few Porsche 934 in the 1979 edition of the 24 hours of Le Mans always caught our attention because of its body color, an unusual gray, Agate gray, in addition to the fact that the sponsor it was national. Another particularity that catches our attention is that one of the few, if not the only Porsche 934 that used front vents at some point in the race, which perhaps made it even more striking. For all this, we like it as a decoration alternative, and with the Renaissance decal sheet, the task will be "sewing and singing".
