Newsletter 149: In their flying machines...

In their flying machines...
...rode those magnificent men. Yes, those crazy car racing heroes took 4500 cubic centimetres supercharged to reach 240 horsepower, added just some drum brakes to try to stop them and leaf springs to put them on the ground, and fought their epic battles at the 24 hours of Le Mans. And on top of that, they finished the races. And some of them even won. And their cars were GORGEOUS :D

The Heller kit of the Bentley 4.5L Blower comes to SpotModel, a kit older than dirt, but once you open it big surprises arise: yes, it's old (almost as old as the actual car) and resembles the old school kits, but this one looks really great. REAAAAAAALLY really great. Just have a look at the photographs :D

Some other magnificent men have done great things with fresher machines just like the Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 and his 315hp, now finely reproduced by Model Factory Hiro, the 590 horse powered Lotus Type 77 that you can now build in 1/12 scale with the help of the same factory transkit, the 820 horse powered Williams FW16 now in 1/20 scale from Fujimi, and more, and more...

And the worst thing? That now, the boss says that he wants one of the Bentleys from Heller to make a quickie. Well, erm... magnificent, isn't it? :D

Fujimi: Car scale model kit 1/24 scale - McLaren F1 - paint masks, plastic parts, rubber parts, water slide decals, assembly instructions and painting instructions

Fujimi Reference: FJ125732

What modeler who loves supercars could resist having the McLaren F1 in his showcase? The F1 revolutionized the supercar segment in 1992, and it is said that everything was born as a joke... but what a joke! Fujimi has reproduced this model with great quality of detail, allowing the upper part of its impressive V12 engine developed by BMW to be partially mounted, and with its door system that will allow you to choose between leaving them closed or open, in case you prefer to expose its curious cabin with three seats. Quite a show!
