Newsletter 496: Well done, boss!!!

Well done, boss!!!

Well done, boss!!!
As we announced in our previous newsletter, the Fuengirola Scale Modeling Contest took place last weekend, and there we went like every other year to meet up with old friends and make new friends, talk about models and have a good time having some beers... :)

The showcases were packed to overflowing, with almost 1000 builds in the competition. And what can we say? We came back home very happy, because in addition to enjoying a model event again (which we were already looking forward to), the BMW R75 and the Maserati 250F presented by the boss to the competition were awarded by the very demanding and experienced jury. Two different builds assembled with all the love and tenderness, just like we prepare your orders at SpotModel, as it couldn't be otherwise.

The boss got so excited that he's already preparing his next build, to be presented at Jabbeke. It is not yet confirmed that it will be held in 2022 but we are all waiting impatiently for the good news. Everything suggests that he will include some of the novelties of this week such as the Decalcas fittings in 0.8mm size, the reedited decals by Tabu, some of the Porsche 911 by Arena... we'll see :D

It seems that, as he says, SpotModel's thinking head still knows how to build scale models :)

Rivets are included to provide added support if required. Each hinge body has two guide points for drilling the holes once fixed in position, so you can insert the rivets and make a robust connection without much effort.
