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

SK Decals: Marking / livery 1/24 scale - Ford Mustang GT4 KohR Motorsports Team sponsored by Kadima #59 - Joey Atterbury + Jack Roush Jr. - Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge - Lime Rock 2018 - water slide decals and assembly instructions - for Tamiya reference TAM24354

SK Decals Reference: SK-24116

The appearance of the Tamiya kit of the Ford Mustang GT4 has encouraged several manufacturers to design a multitude of liveries used by the different teams that have used this vehicle, each one more spectacular. This one sponsored by Kadima, with different references to the American flag, and with two large green five-pointed stars, we liked it a lot, recalling the decorations of some fighters... perhaps that is why the suggestive doll on the rear bumper, which comes in a little decal supplement?

SK Decals: Marking / livery 1/24 scale - Ford Mustang GT4 KohR Motorsports Team sponsored by Roush Scudo #60 - Kyle Marcelli + Nate Stacy - Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge - Mosport 2018 - water slide decals and assembly instructions - for Tamiya reference TAM24354

SK Decals Reference: SK-24117

A decoration that cannot hide its American origin, with the flag occupying the roof of the car and the lateral star of the sponsor SCUDO being the great protagonist of the sides, but what we liked a lot, like the decoration of the sister car of the team with the number #59, it is the decal of the doll on the rear bumper, in the purest style of the American army planes. Will it serve to avoid touching it from behind other participants?

It has been more than 37 years since the appearance of the first Suzuki GSX-750 on the market, a pioneering model in the offer of motorcycles derived from competition, but approved for use on the street. The model offers us a very complete exploded view of all the mechanics, as well as the chassis, with the new swingarm incorporated for the 1986 version. Its characteristic front with the double faired headlight is more than recognizable. A legend!

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.
