And you call that a job?

And you call that a job?
Some gorgeous red boxes have just arrived from Japan with the Studio27 logo printed in big white letters, and one of them has "R18 24h LM 2014" written on the side. The face of the boss turned crazy, he grabbed one box and hid in his office for the whole afternoon. Working hard? I guess not... just look at what he wrote on the blog

Along with the Le Mans Audi R18 came two red boxes of the reeditions of the Arrows A2 kits from the French, Nederlands and Italian Grand Prix. We hope that the boss misses them...

And more from Studio27: the 1982 Tour de Corse decals and the photoetches for the recently reedited BMW M1.

In addition, this week we have a two new brands premiere, each one more interesting than the other: Mineshima, a Japanese forger of precision files, and Museum Collection, also Japanese, with the most realistic carbon fiber pattern decals ever made according to all modeling gurus. Hide them, the boss is comming!!!

Don't miss also the Lotus 98T and the MP4/4 from MFH in 1/12 scale, both belonging to high level limited editions, only for seasoned modelers reaching their limits.

And for a brief preview of some interesting things that you can preorder now, there are the longed carbon fiber patterns for the Porsche Carrera GT, the Tabu decoration for Solberg Rallycross, and the superstar: the reedition of the hugely acclaimed Audi Quattro Sport kit. The boss already put his dibs on one...

We'll try to hide them from him, but just in case... order yours now!! :D
