Newsletter 483: Dear SpotModel

Dear SpotModel

Dear SpotModel
It is possible that the most veterans remember what modeling was like before the internet dominated our lives, let's say back in the 80's. To order a scale model from a specialized store, you had to first write a letter asking them to send you a list of What they had in stock, weeks later you received the postal reply with the photocopied list and then, happier than a clam, you placed your order, again by letter.

After a long time you received a new letter, this time with the confirmation of your reserved products and so you had to go in person to the bank to stand in the queue and make a bank transfer for the products purchased. The receipt of the payment was sent one more time by letter to the store, and again a few weeks later, you received your order.

In those years words like "photo-etch", "transkit", "Alclad", "Studio27", "lacquer", ... just didn't exist. You simply ordered a scale model and half a dozen of Pactra, Humbrol, Molak or Tamiya colors... and with a little bit of luck you even got it delivered! :)

Remembering all this, we only intend to praise the advantages of the internet and globalization for these cases, which give us the possibility of accessing an extensive product catalog with a simple click, with great price competition and the logistic agility of these times. GREAT!!! Nobody remembers the endless weeks (or months) of waiting to receive any news about your models, or a shipment without a tracking number, or the non-existent variety of products, nor really unpopular prices in most cases.

How happy we are that the internet, the electronic devices and SpotModel exist!! :D

Reference: P24122K

Aston Martin attempted its return to the top of Sport racing by taking advantage of the Gr.C regulations, developing the AMR-1 and competing in most of the 1989 Sport Prototype World Championship events. Little by little the development of the car led to more worthy results, although the economic difficulties of the brand cancelled the project at the end of the year with the new model, the AMR-2, practically already built. Profil has brought this model to life with a very complete and detailed model, especially in the external aspect, perfectly recreating the curious shapes of this prototype.
