Newsletter 144: Mirror, mirror on the wall... :)

Mirror, mirror on the wall... :)

Mirror, mirror on the wall... :)
Not so long ago some guys invented the 'black chrome' which is a chroming technique using chemicaly modified chrome to get a deep black tone, while mantaining the glossiness and reflectivity of classic chrome. The lads at Bare Metal Foil have recreated this effect in one of their famous adhesive sheets, and of course SpotModel was not going to miss it :)

Some more interesting things for this week, such as some discontinued kits of the Porsche 935 in 1/20 scale from Tamiya, a couple of MFH books about 1977 Grands Prix (Grand Prices? Grand Prixs? Grand Prixes? Well, several of them :), the arrival to stock of several decals from Studio27, and the Heller Renault R5 kit that replaces the discontinued kit from Tamiya.

Also, don't miss the restocking of Microscale Liquid Decal Film, an essential helper if you need to use old decals.

So mirror, mirror on the wall, who's going to get the deepest and shiniest blacks of all? :D

Microscale: Decal products - Liquid decal film - 1 x 30ml

Microscale Reference: MI-12

Everyone who build scale models and uses decals should have Micro Liquid Decal Film, especially if you are an expert scale model builder. The classic decal scrap box is not the best place to store the decals. When exposed to air, sunlight, moisture, great temperature changes or general abuse, decals will get damaged. Or maybe you just always have had trouble putting on thin stripes. Micro Liquid Decal Film solves all those problems, making a damaged decal (for what ever reason) work again just like new almost immediately.

Studio27 Reference: ST27-DC1035

There have been specific moments in which Martini cars have been seen completely in red. The most famous was perhaps during the 1989 San Remo Rally, on the occasion of the debut of the Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V, but there was an earlier occasion, which Studio27 has captured on a decal sheet to use together with Hasegawa's Lancia Rally 037 kit. In 1985, during the test days prior to the Portugal rally, Lancia dressed the 037 entirely in red, thus being different from the one that later ran in white and climbed to the second podium position.
