Newsletter 455: Low temperatures

Low temperatures

Low temperatures
These days the whole Europe has temperatures below the freezing point, it is really cold, streets are full of ice and snow and everything get more complicated for couriers, vans, trucks, etc... who are responsible for moving your orders from SpotModel to your cozy home, since they find many problems to carry on with their jobs as usual. These days everything goes slower.

In addition, we cannot forget the worldwide effect of the pandemic, which forces everyone to observe more complex safety regulations, causing long delays in the traffic of planes, containers and ships that slowly bring the goods from the diverse and very distant points of manufacturing to the SpotModel warehouse. Problems and especially unforeseen delays arise daily.

And to finish painting the picture, we add a few other issues such as the lack of Postal Service with Australia (thank god that at least couriers still deliver), supply problems of Zero Paints due to Brexit or the lack of cargo space on the planes of logistic companies due to the growth of online sales.

Despite this scenario we are facing, we are still here, stepping hard on the gas to get over this "little hill" XD Luckily we are all modelers, we love peace, tranquility, we exercise patience and... We love it this wonderful time of the year that invites you to stay in-house enjoying the coziness of your home and the immense pleasure of building scale models!!!

Even with the cold, the pandemic, delays and other problems, we have new things for you, such as the Italeri and Tamiya catalogs for this year 2021, several reissues of Studio27 photo-etched parts, several Revell announcements and we are already have at your disposal all the products from the ScaleLab_24 catalog. If you face any problems, do not block your mind, but just flow and adapt...

Just like we do at SpotModel: Be water my friend ... ommmmmmm :)
