At SpotModel we are lucky to love our work. We are scale modellers who work in a warehouse full of scale models and material to assemble them, paint them, detail them... what else can you ask for? :D

Of course, each one of us has their own preferences: some of us are more into rallying, others into motorcycles, some are more into 1/43, others are addicted to F1... in short, there's something for every taste. But when a specimen walks through the door, like the one that arrived yesterday afternoon, the adoration is unanimous. It happened that in the last supply we received from Hasegawa we have found a new golden calf to venerate called "limited series Subaru World Rally Team Subaru Impreza WRX 555 winner of the 1995 Rallye Automobile Monte-Carlo with Sainz at the wheel".

Every time we open that box and see those rims and shock absorbers in white metal, or see that resin-cast dashboard, or see those photo-etched parts, we inevitably reach ecstasy, and even more knowing that it belongs to a unit-limited series that will last for very little time at the warehouse.

We have already prepared a small altar and we have organized ourselves to be able to admire it in turns while it remains at SpotModel :)
