We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas
Christmas is finally here. Those days when one stays at home, not rushing anywhere, without having to fight with the traffic, when we have time to enjoy our family, our friends and, above all... our models!!! Great!!!

While you wait for the moment to get your hands on Mom's cooking fest, the mother-in-law's delicious desserts, or for the arrival of the nice guy with white beards who comes through the fireplace (and they say that we scale modelers look weird...), what a better entertainment than keeping an eye on the latest "candy" of the year at SpotModel?

Just to name just a few, you have here some new Number Five colors that match the Christmas tree balls, or some Tamiya reeditions like the Lotus 79 photoetched parts that come in a beautiful Christmas red packaging, or their 2022 catalogue where you can circle all your wishes for the new year, or the reedition of the brand new Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV by Aoshima or some carbon fibre patterns reedited by Studio27.

A reason for happiness and additional enthusiasm for the SpotModel team is the HUGE amount of your messages that reach us, full of congratulations, good wishes and pictures of "spotmodelized" Christmas trees XD Thank you all! :)

Without any doubts, Christmas will not be the same at SpotModel without you :)
