This Way Up

This Way Up
In the world of logistics and warehousing, the message "This Way Up" refers to how the boxes should be placed and stacked to avoid damaging their content, but for us modelers this phrase also carries another meaning, being the name of a prestigious brand of white metal scale models in 1/43 scale of Formula 1 cars. Sadly, the brand closed a few years ago after its owner passed away.

However, today we have great news for all 1/43 scale lovers: Tameo have acquired the material from This Way Up and have begun to reissue their product catalog, starting with their first references. Right now we can only offer the support stands for Formula 1 bodyworks, but in the next few weeks the first two kit references will arrive, specifically the Wolf Ford WR5. Great!!!

At SpotModel we don't perform miracles, but we do try :)
