Ships that sail once in a lifetime (...or twice)

Ships that sail once in a lifetime (...or twice)
Back in 2003, Scale Motorsport put on the market a mind blowing product, nothing less than a super detail-up kit for the Porsche 935 Turbo in 1/12 scale by Tamiya. Something that was like from another galaxy back in those days, since nobody had ever seen anything like it: a box full of small machined, metal turned, milled and photo-etched parts... It was not within everyone's reach, because of both it's price tag and for being a limited edition. The nearly 500 lucky people who were able to access one of these wonders had a great time detailing their models, but... what about the rest of us? Well, we had to accept that we missed it, right?

Now it is reissued. Yes, you read that right... Scale Motorsport releases again the super detail-up kit for the Porsche 935!!! :D

But be careful and pay attention, because once again it is a new batch limited to 550 units, including all the original parts and inside a new box with a carefully redesigned look. The arrival date of the product is estimated for June this year, perfect to enjoy a summertime build fest, right?

Not often we are lucky enough to see a ship like this sail twice in a lifetime, so don't miss your chance this time and preorder your super detail-up kit now at SpotModel. And the scale model. And the paints. And... :)
