Humbrol

Humbrol
The oldest ones in town, those of us who started assembling scale models long before wheel and fire were invented, used some paintings that were forgotten with the past of the centuries. Those smelly and thick paints by "Molak", those square jars from "Pactra" and, of course, those tiny little Humbrol's paint cans that NEVER ran out... XD

Well, for all those of us who began at that time when there were no photo-etched parts, no acrylic paintings, and no one used an airbrush, we have managed to bring back Humbrol's paints. YAAAAYYYYYYYY!!! The containers are the same as always but with a new look, and of course they include freshly manufactured paint so you can use the most traditional painting techniques.

We have already activated a good part of their color ranges and will add more and more tones in the next few days. However, if you miss anyone, just send us an email to info@spotmodel.com and we will look for the colors you need.

SpotModel, for both the novelty maniacs and the most nostalgic modelers :-D

Reji Model: Marking / livery 1/24 scale - Ford Fiesta WRC Flying Finn Team sponsored by Konecranes #1 - Valtteri Bottas + Timo Rautiainen - Arctic Lapland Rallye 2019 - water slide decals and assembly instructions - for Belkits references BEL012, BEL-012, BEL013 and BEL-013

Reji Model Reference: REJI-316

It is not the first example of an F1 driver running a rally, but it was surprising that in the current Formula 1 so professional Valtteri Bottas got permission to participate in the 2019 Arctic Rally... he must have liked it, because he repeated experiences in 2020 and 2021. Reji has reproduced in great detail the decoration of the Fiesta WRC with which the F1 driver would achieve the fifth final position of the rally. All you need to do is find the snow wheels, or at least the dirt wheels. To do this, it occurs to us that the reference KMP-TK24181, also available at SpotModel, could be worth it.
