Let's say goodbye to 2020

Let's say goodbye to 2020
2020 has been a very complicated year that has challenged us all in different ways, with many changes, with many moments and situations that we never imagined could happen. Luckily, we scale modelers have had our little refuge in our hobby: the passion for models, for those boxes full of little pieces, has given us good times at home, which helped us to disconnect from the daily problems. That's what we want to keep from 2020. :)

We want to thank you for your support to SpotModel, your patience, your comments, your loyalty... that make us strive, grow and improve every day. So let's say goodbye to 2020 and welcome the new year with some novelties that have just arrived, such as the Alfa Romeo 8C in 1/12 scale by Italeri; others will arrive in a few weeks, such as the new Brach Model 1/12 scale Motobi; or others that we will see well into the new year, such as the MPC reedition of the Dodge Charger in 1/16 scale.

Let's all toast to 2021, and long live scale models!!! XD
