Newsletter 476: 99T

99T

99T
We already told you in newsletter number 463 that Nunu was working on the version of the Lotus Honda 99T in 1/12 scale, and today we can say that the kit is expected to see the light at the end of the year and will recreate the configuration used at the Mnaco Grand Prix, where Senna achieved his first of many victories in Formula 1 in this track. But the best of all is that... you can already preorder it NOW at SpotModel!!! :D

Nunu has not provided any more details, besides the prototype that was shown in Shizuoka, but surely there will be an additional set with the photoetched parts, antennas, harnesses, etc... And everything indicates that it is very likely that the tobacco logos are not included on the model.

Let's be patient and build some other models while Nunu finishes preparing the product, such as the new kit from Tameo's Montegrosso range of the Ferrari 500 in 1/43 scale, or some of your veteran models with the freshly printed decals reissued by Shunko like the Skyline GT- R. We can also stockpile on the decals for the BMW M8 that SK Decals has released for the Nunu's model that will arrive at SpotModel in the coming weeks. :)

Which one is faster, Senna at the wheel of the 99T clocking a lap record at Mnaco or SpotModel presenting you the news? :D

During the tests prior to the race, Bobby Rahal's RLL team drove their two units of the BMW M8 GTE practically without sponsors, with a black bodywork, which revealed the carbon patterns of its different panels. S.K. Decals has prepared a set with two sheets of decals to fully reproduce this decoration that seems simple, but that is presented as quite a challenge. Do you dare to cover with fiber the huge BMW M8?

Reference: SHK-D439

Perhaps the most dominant model ever from a championship, the Nissan Skyline GT-R Gr.A. For 4 seasons it won all the races of the Japanese Touring Car Championship, between 1990 and 1993, so it is normal that more and more teams used this model to fight for victories. One of those teams, and which was presented in 1992, was the HKS, which used up to 3 different liveries that season, the one from this decal sheet being the one used in the last two championship events. This decal sheet is suitable for any of the references of the Tamiya kit.

Reference: SHK-D440

Although in 1990 the team already laid the first stone with the participation of a Skyline R32 GT-R within the category of series cars or Gr.N, it was in 1991 when it obtained one of its greatest successes, the absolute victory in the 24 Hours of Spa, with an overwhelming dominance, which was also supported by the victory of Skyline registered as Gr.N, in what was one of the first Skyline victories outside of Japan, but without a doubt the most renowned. Any of the three Zexel sponsored builds, the 1990 and 1991 Gr.N, as well as the overall Gr.A winner in 1991, can be completed with this superb decal sheet, initially designed to fit Tamiya kits of the Nissan Skyline GT-R Gr.N and Gr.A respectively.

Starting from the base of the Evo VIII, a version that simulates the colors used in the world rally by the Lancer WRC, with its sides, roof and hoods in silver, easily reproducible thanks to the decal sheet, and with other specific elements such as the 5-spoke wheels in black.
