Fuengirola 2021

Fuengirola 2021
After almost two years without modeling events, it seems that a relative normality returns and this weekend we have a model contest!!! Out of the usual date, the Fuengirola Scale Modeling Contest is back, where we will surely gather a good troop of modelers eager to talk about glues, the latest plastic part, how wonderful our models are and how lame are the others'...

Take a look at the contest website to see the different proposed challenges, special awards, scheduled conferences and workshops; and if you dare, sign up online for the contest and take a trip to Fuengirola this weekend. We will be waiting for you!

We are sure that at the "brotherhood lunch" we will comment on all the news staff at SpotModel, such as the decals by SK Decals, Shunko and LB Production which will be available shortly, the new Number Five colors, the fantastic parts of DAB Models or the switches by Decalcas...

Of course, we will go with our SpotModel mask on. What's more, the boss is even thinking of putting a mask even on his scale models XD

These rims have been designed to fit perfectly in the model replacing the original ones, to recreate the configuration of tires with ice studs. They are supplied with the nuts initially used to secure the rims (configuration of 5 nuts per rim), as well as with the central nut used in some tests where it was necessary to make quick wheel changes. In addition, a complete set of decals printed with digital technology is provided with the different Speedline logos used and the tire's own markings. In order to honor even the tiniest detail, the amount of white on these decals has been carefully tuned so that its transparency simulates the tone of the actual tire markings, as these were sprayed onto the tire with a stencil.
