&laquo;The heart of <I>il cavallino</I> beats right next to mine...&raquo;

«The heart of il cavallino beats right next to mine...»
...said Alberto Ascari after the 80 laps and 50 minutes that took him winning the Italian Grand Prix in 1952. That year, except Indianapolis, he won each and absolutely every race he run at the wheel of the gorgeous Ferrari 500. Tameo made us incredibly happy reproducing the Ferrari of the italian victory in full detail: an amazing piece based on an equally amazing pilot :D

Among all the recently arrived products from Renaissance Models, the ones that really stand out are the resin kits of the Ford Sierra Cosworth at the Tour de Corse and the Ferrari 250 TRI, both in 1/24 scale, along with some decals and rims. Yes, there are only a few units, but you can stay calm if you miss them since many more will arrive around the beginning of August.

And from the discount-inued products department, some very interesting pieces like the Toyota 2000 GT in 1/20 scale from the now defunct Nagano Plastic Model.

Do you also feel the heartbeat of il cavallino rampante? :D
