Newsletter 473: Shizuoka 2021

Shizuoka  2021

Shizuoka 2021
The largest event for worldwide scale modeling manufacturers has been held in Shizuoka for no less than 59 years. This year has been a little strange due to the circumstances that are limiting us all, but that has not detracted anything from the event. So let's cut the introduction and let's go directly to what interests us... cars and motorcycles scale models!!!

Aoshima has announced the LB Works Lamborghini Huracan v.1 for which we are sure we will see interesting liveries (Mad Mike's, pretty please!!!). Hasegawa has presented ... ermmmmmm.... ummmmm.... nothing, let's move to the next booth. Ebbro showed the Lotus Ford 005 and the remix of the Lotus 33 Coventry Climax based on the Tamiya Lotus 25. And now it's Nunu's turn, with the Volvo S40 and Lotus 99t prototypes (in 1/12 scale!!!). We run to the Tamiya booth that presents the re-edition of the Sauber Mercedes C9 to which they added some photo-etched parts, as well as the re-edition of the BT44B in 1/12 scale, the re-edition of the Nissan Fairlady 240ZG, and the premiere of the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP Black. And I think we can go to the bar now... XD

The whole staff at SpotModel would have loved to attend, but we have been really busy building models... so it will have to be next year ;D
