Newsletter 423: Sanding sponges

Sanding sponges

Sanding sponges
A few months ago we announced SpotModel's sanding sponges, in several different grains, because it seemed us a great solution to prepare bodies and refining paint. Now, it turns out that some lads from the Far East have seen that the product is amazing and have launched their own version under their prestigious brand. None less than Tamiya has put on the market their own range of sanding sponges, with different grains, so that you can enjoy sanding after sanding. But for this time, we will not ask them for royalties... XD

Talking about Tamiya, the seasoned 1/12 scale Matra MS11 reedition, now under the Ebbro label, will arrive in the next few weeks. If you want yours, you'd better preorder it :)

And by the way, if you are thinking of ordering some Tamiya sanding sponges to test them, do not forget to also throw in the Porsche 917 and the Porsche 911 GT3R by Fujimi, just arrived to our warehouse again.

Get on with your sanding, either with SpotModel's or with Tamiya's sponges, and be amazed with the result :)
