As every day you log into your favorite forum, your social network groups, read the crossed replies between modelers where the projects in progress are shown, where each one shows their little secrets, where every day one can see our "model daughters" grow (and so our brother modellers), one brushstroke at a time, one piece at a time, one decal at a time, and even one mess at a time... Because it is useless to deny it: some more, and others even much more, we screw it up enormously in the not easy task of assembling a model.

That said, there's always a perfect modeler, someone who not only builds like heaven but also goes always a bit further, a person capable of assembling way smoother and cleaner, someone who is capable of building a beauty like the 917 display in 1/43 scale of the picture in this SpotModel newsletter. And you have no other choice than widen your eyes and take off your hat.

After this inspiring vision, we invite you to take a look at the news that we bring you in SpotModel. What wonders can come out of assembling, for example, the Italeri XJ220 re-edition using Number Five colors?

From SpotModel we send our best wishes and applauses to the modelers worldwide who day after day surprise us with their assemblies. You are amazing :)
