Newsletter 149: In their flying machines...
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
