Newsletter 403: Nuremberg 2020

Nuremberg 2020

Nuremberg 2020
Scale-modeling-wise, the New Year doesn't start on January 1st but later this month. And why? Very easy: because it is at the end of January when the Toy Fair is held in Nuremberg, where every manufacturer worth their salt shows the "candy" they will use to tempt us during the rest of the year :)

The fair opened doors a few hours ago and we have already been able to meet and delight ourselves with a few "sweets". The first of them, the Porsche 934 in 1/12 scale, a re-edition of the Tamiya classic, but this time including photo-etched parts and the Vaillant livery belonging to the 1976 German GT Championship.

Tamiya's second jewel has surprised everyone, frankly no one expected it: nothing less than the Ford Mustang GT4 in 1/24 scale. Wow!!!!

Italeri, for their part, announced the Lancia Delta HF 16v in 1/12 scale as their shinny new release, as well as several re-editions of veteran Esci (Mercedes 450 SLC, Jeep Renegade, Jeep CJ7, ...) and Protar (BMW 1000 and Yamaha Tenere, both in Dakar versions) kits.

Do not miss SpotModel website, we will publish more news during these days!!!! :D
