Newsletter 523: We didn't expect that!

We didn't expect that!

We didn't expect that!
A few weeks ago we told you about the Decalcas chain for the Suzuki GSX-RR an awesome product that left us speechless. History repeats itself and Decalcas surprises us again with another great product that we did not expect: a detail-up set for the Suzuki GSX-RR by Tamiya that replaces parts such as the rear brake disc and caliper, rear tire axle and nut, chain tensioner, brake and gear shifting levers, stand brackets, and also adds the antennas to the side camera and replaces the fastening screws of the visible chassis sections already included in the original Tamiya box for new resin parts that faithfully recreate the head of the originals, as well as replacing the numerous simulated screws on the surface of the fairing. Look at that!

We were speechless when we received the blister with the pieces: amazing detail and a simply perfect part listing, with every single one of them designed for providing greater realism to the model even if you are not an experienced modeler.

Our motorcycle lover friends, you can be happy, reaaaally happy, because Decalcas also told us that they are already working on parts for another Tamiya motorcycle. Which one will be the lucky one?

In addition to this Decalcas detail set, we also have many other novelties such as a few decals and photoetched parts reeditions by Studio27, lots of DAB Models corner lights, the beautiful BMW HP4 Race scale model by Meng, the long awaited Top Studio detailing set for the engine of the FW14B, and many many more.

SpotModel makes easier for you improving your models even further :)
