Magnus Walker
There is no doubt that Magnus Walker is a truly peculiar person. We met him a while ago at a car event, we took some selfies and chatted briefly. And what is the misfortune of poor Magnus Walker? Well, he likes cars, especially Porsches, like many of us. He owns quite a nice collection of them BUT...

...poor Magnus found out that the collection of cars we have is SO much bigger than his, and that made him very envious, he can't sleep well at night and he does not even feel like shaving XD. Of course we didn't tell him that our car collection is in 1/12, 1/20 and 1/43 scale... shhhhhhh :)

Joking aside, if you feel sympathy for this quirky motor collector, you can purchase a new 1/43 scale Magnus Walker figure from DAB Models (hey, it comes unpainted) that you can pre-order now at SpotModel.

So you can have fun yourself painting Magnus while the poor guy have to spend many hours cleaning his 1:1 scale cars :)

Scale Production: Detail 1/24 scale - Weber Carburators - 3D printed parts - 2 units

Scale Production Reference: SP24273-3D

Within the world of carburettors, whose modification, preparation and adjustment were vital for the performance of the vehicle, especially in competition, there has always been a brand that, just by naming it, commanded respect, and that was Weber. Having them was synonymous with power and performance, and many were the leading vehicles that used them in their engines. Now, thanks to the level of detail that is achieved with 3D printing, we can have them to scale with great detail, appreciating all the hardware of the part, the different bodies, the intake trumpets and the adjustment taps of the mixture. All a wonder so you can increase the feeling of realism of the engine.

Up to four photo-etched plates are included in this upgrade set for the Tamiya McLaren Senna, apart from other parts such as the turned metal inflation valves for the rims or the fabric for the seat belts. The brake discs take on great prominence in this car both for their dimensions and for their visibility through the rims, so they are an essential part to improve, and this is how ScaleLab24 has understood it, without neglecting many other details such as grilles or license plates. As a detail for the big Senna fans, a stencil is included to recreate the great Ayrton's signature.

It was only the second edition of the ADAC Deutschland Rally, and it still did not even score for the European Championship, but at the start of the 1983 rally there was nothing more and nothing less than a double world champion like Walter Rhrl at the controls of the Lancia 037 sponsored by Wurth, which without a technical problem, none of them dominated the rally at will. Reji has reproduced the livery of the car as it entered the rally, with a complete decal sheet, which was Rhrl's last race with the Lancia before he started driving for Audi...
