Newsletter 459: Virtual Hobby Show

Virtual Hobby Show

Virtual Hobby Show
In the last days we have received with great joy the information of two events that are going to take place soon in "virtual" format, since the pandemic does not allow us to carry them out in a traditional way.

On one side, we have the Virtual Jabbeke Hobby Show (https://www.facebook.com/groups/781964186005635) that will begin on Friday March 12th at 18:00 with the idea of contributing with pictures of the models that you would have presented at the "physical" event, in a similar way to what was done last year. This huge European event focuses only on cars, motorcycles and trucks, and you simply have to request to be admitted to the group to enjoy the meeting.

And on the other hand, on the same dates we have the Painting team (https://www.facebook.com/groups/612272712861897), a Spanish proposal that invites all kinds of modelers to compete.

What can you do in the month that you still have before both events? Well, very easy, you can assemble any of the new "candies" that we have for you, such as the McLaren Senna by Tamiya, the McLaren TAG Porsche MP4/2C by Nunu with its detailing set, the Ford GT40 by either Meng or Trumpeter, or you can also just enjoy the pictures of the Lotus Renault 97T and the Porsche 935/78 Moby Dick included in the new Komakai books :)

Don't think about it twice, we'll see you in virtual worlds with SpotModel :D
