Contacta clear
Today we are not going to talk about cars, motorcycles or drivers, today we are going to introduce you a new product just arrived that we LOVED, so we felt like it deserved to be highlighted. It is called Contacta Clear by Revell and it is an acrylic glue that dries completely transparent. It surprises at first sight due to its density, it is served in a bottle with 20 grams of product (about 17ml) and it also includes an application brush on the lid.

It is designed to glue plastic parts, especially the transparent parts, since once dry it's really difficult to point where the glue is. Magic? It certainly is, and of the good kind. As if that were not enough, the product is also really cheap and we can send it everywhere on this planet. :)

At SpotModel we are currently studying the possibility of shipping to Mars... but it seems that there are still few modelers in the area XD (although there are already a few scale models up there! ;-)

ScaleLab 24 Reference: SL02-029

Fujimi's model of the Porsche 917K is a classic, but fortunately being able to add details and improve its finish is becoming easier thanks to the launch of sets such as the one designed by ScaleLab 24. Two complete photo-etched plates, where we find innovative details such as a template to mark the tires with the Avon brand, currently used to fit this beast, or the relief of the control units inside the passenger compartment. Besides, fabric material for the harnesses, masks to paint the frame of the side windows, and resin parts, such as the brake fluid bottles that are visible when the central cover of the front hood is opened. How good it is to improve!

Revell: Car scale model kit 1/25 scale - Shelby AC Cobra 289 #98 1962 - plastic parts, rubber parts, water slide decals and assembly instructions

Revell Reference: REV07669

Who was going to tell Carroll Shelby that his letter to AC to be able to transform his Ace model to be able to incorporate V8 engines was going to be so successful, especially in competition. But there were less powerful versions than the best known, the 427. The 289 version also had a 4.7 liter V8 engine, but with "only" 275 hp, which was also used in competition. The Revell kit includes a highly detailed tubular chassis as well as the V8 engine, allowing one of the myths of American motorsport to be assembled.
