Tamiya
Months ago we all wondered what was happening with Tamiya, they weren't releasing any new products and it felt like they were stopped, but all that was the simple consecuence of a number of important internal problems related to the management of the company. Currently, those problems have been solved and we have a new Tamiya that has been stepping heavy on the gas pedal, really heavy. They don't stop releasing new and very interesting products to help with the assembly and finishing of our models, they are launching new and really sweet models and at the same time reissuing old glories from their catalog.

This week they have presented the new releases for the coming months, and our eyes immediately focused with huge tenderness on one of them... Nothing less than the long time expected reedition of the Fiat 131 in 1/20 scale, this time with a new decoration executed with total perfection by the hand of Cartograf. The model will be available just for a certain time and in limited units so, as always, we recommend that you reserve yours, your cousin's, your friend's, and the neighbor's below. :)

The model will have the same original parts listing, which includes the figures of the pilot and the copilot, and there are already several manufacturers preparing decals and resin parts so we can make variants. Yaaaaaayyy, that's exciting!!!

Just like SpotModel, Tamiya is unstoppable ;D

Profil24 Reference: P24121

The Mercedes CLR is, perhaps, one of the biggest failures of Mercedes in the world of competition, literally flying up to three times on the Mulsanne Straight in three different accidents in the 1999 Le Mans 24 Hours. But this fact is also part of the history of Le Mans, and after all for many the car can be very attractive. Profil24 has understood this, developing the resin model with its usual quality, with a complete set of photo-etched parts and a high-quality decal sheet. Of course, don't let Mercedes find out, who didn't want to hear about the CLR project again...
