Color flares
Like a cool summer breeze... that's how we have welcomed the new Number Five paints at SpotModel. With an eye-catching packaging and with different product ranges, the little bottles are parading in front of our excited eyes while an unstoppable desire to storm out of the office and try them is growing inside us, because they look REALLY good.

At this moment, two product ranges are available and in stock: the basic range, where we find the standard colors to use on all types of parts; and the specific, including the color tones that match specific models and brands of actual vehicles, designed to be used in their corresponding model reproductions in scale.

The lads at Number Five told us that they have been documenting for years visiting museums and private collections of racing cars and motorcycles, looking for the greatest similarity to real life tones but with the necessary adaptations to give maximum realism in scale reproductions. They also told us that their paints are ready to be used with an airbrush, without the need of adding thinner or mix them with other products, and feature really short drying times. COOL!! :D

As said before, at SpotModel we are looking forward to trying them... and we are not going to leave that for tomorrow!! :)
