Depending on your time zone, now it is 24 hours (more or less) before the start of what embodies, without any doubts, the biggest annual event in the world of endurance races: the incredible 24 Hours of Le Mans, taking place at the La Sarthe circuit long before most of us were born :D

On this occasion, famous drivers with mythical cars will be racing, some of which already are or will be available in a short time as scale models so we can build them: even some manufacturers are already starting to position themselves announcing their new decorations and, within a few days, also some kits. We love that!!!

While we wait for the lights to go green, why don't we kill some time reviewing the novelties at SpotModel? We have already received the Pagani Huayra Pacchetto Tempesta, the last supply of the new Reji decals for Italeri reeditions, or the fantastic sandpaper "pads" by Albion Alloys... reaching up to 12000 grit!!! :)

Set up your favorite sofa, 24 hours of pure adrenaline and fun await you. This weekend, at SpotModel we are not going to take our eyes off the TV... or our hands off the scale models!! :)

Decalcas Reference: DCL-DEC035

Decoration for recreating the Wynns sponsored Keating Motorsport Ford GT, winner of the GT Am class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2019, and finally stripped of the title due to different irregularities during refueling. As usual in Decalcas sheets, this decoration takes care of each and every detail, and you can tell it has been designed with scale modelers in mind. For instance, it includes the entire front of the car in a single decal that also includes a variant in case you want to also use photo-etched parts. The manufacturer told us they have performed over 40 color test and adjustment tests to achieve the most precise decal, and it even includes the small stickers and logos that other manufacturers just missed. It is absolutely awesome!!
