Newsletter 161: Turn off your mind...
The T1, the legendary Volkswagen van, have just hopped into SpotModel in it's most distinguished and luxurious version by the hand of Revell, a true classic from the sixties. And along with, Revell added some other references: the reedition of the classic Bentley from Le Mans 1930 (it's all about classics this week), and the Porsche 904 GTS Carrera.
On the other side, we also have here the new wonder from Komakai: the ultra detail guide of the MP4/8, an absolutely must have for every McLaren lover and for all that have the intention of building the recently reedited Tamiya kit as it deserves.
From the excellent Model Factory Hiro, several 1/43 scaled jewels around the Porsche 962C, with a special loving mention to the Repsol version that raced at Le Mans.
And for the perfectionists... do you like Tameo carbon fibre decals? Then you're lucky since now they've edited sheets with two different patterns, the classic diagonal pattern, and the modern square pattern.
Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void and... indulge in your desires! ;)
