We've seen stars...

We've seen stars...
...and not because we hit really hard in the head!!! :D The PitWall transkit for the Pescarolo kit from SimilR has finally arrived, and we literally saw stars when we openned the box ;) Usually, PitWall decals are the best of the best you can actually find on the market, but this time they've really pushed the bar even higher. It has color gradients, fluorescent highlights and a few other flourishes, but the stars and metals strips that change their tones and shine differently depending on the view angle are just AWESOME!. A real wonder that deserves a fully detailed post in SpotModel's blog very soon :D

Besides, amongst the rest of the stars in SpotModel sky you can stare at the reappearence of Scuderia Italia.Lab with the Group B Toyota Celica TA64 resin kit, two transkits from Scale Productions for Fujimi's Lemans Porsche P997 GT3RSR and Tamiya's Renault Alpine A110, the carbon fibre decals for Revell's DTM BMW M3, ...

These are just some of this week brightest stars. Make your wish upon them! :D

It could be said that it cost him his career as a Formula 1 driver after his accident in 2011, but what cannot be denied is the love that Kubica has had for rallies, with numerous participations. In the 2013 season, he got on one of the Citroen DS3 RRCs in the WRC2 category to compete in the German Rally, entirely on asphalt. His result, a fantastic fifth position, first among the WRC2, and ahead of several WRC. Reji has reproduced this decoration, and includes in resin the specific rear wing of the RRC, different from the more complex one used in the WRC. The most striking of the decoration is the mirror chrome body, only interrupted by the red and blue areas. Be careful, it's not white! A challenge!
