Carrera GTP

Carrera GTP
During the 80s, Porsche created a machine that would become a true racing legend. An engine tuned to offer up to 325 horsepower, less than 1000 kilograms in weight, widened and fattened on all sides giving it an absolutely impressive appearance... a beauty that raced at Le Mans in 1981 and that now we will finally be able to build in 1/24 scale. Great!!!

The architects of this miracle are the people at Profil24, who offers us a resin model without engine but with the usual detailing and parts list of the brand, along with the classic photo-etched parts and decals to recreate the number 1 unit sponsored by Boss. Simply delicious :)

The first units will arrive at the end of summer, but if you wish, you can already reserve yours. The boss and the most eager employees at SpotModel have already done so! XD

We have been left in stone... but for good! I've been wanting this model for so long, and we finally have it available from Profil24. A stupendous resin reproduction of the factory Porsche 924 GTP that won its class, as well as achieving a magnificent 7th position, in the 1981 Le Mans 24 Hours. We love the diagonal Hugo Boss logo decoration on the sides of its bodywork and its wide wheel arches. We are already looking forward to having it in our hands!

Reference: P24134K

Change the regulations between the GT's, but for Toyota the new rules of the Hypercar did not mean any change in the result obtained in the 24 hours of Le Mans, getting the victory again with the car number 7, which was then the fourth consecutive for Toyota. Profil24 has reproduced this spectacular model in resin, which includes a pair of cockpit doors for those who want to expose the interior. Nothing like seeing its details to discover the complexity of the asymmetric decoration of the bodywork, with a different distribution of red and black colors on the left and right. Spectacular no matter where you look at it!

Reference: ST27-FP2060

The Lotus 78 was used by Lotus in the 1977 and 1978 seasons, so it logically underwent various evolutions. That is why we liked this new photo-etched plate by Studio27 for the Tamiya kit so much, because apart from the radiator grilles, the closures or the rear wing supports, it has different configurations of the side skirts and the side plans of the front and rear wings so that regardless of the race and season chosen, the Lotus model has the detail it deserves.

Shunko Models: Marking / livery 1/12 scale - Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16v sponsored by Martini Racing #1, 5 - Massimo 'Miki' Biasion + Tiziano Siviero, Didier Auriol + Bernard Occelli - Sanremo Rally 1989 - water slide decals and assembly instructions - for Italeri reference 4709

Reference: SHK-D461

Italieri's scale model of the Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V covers the 1990 season, but this evolution really debuted the previous season on the occasion of the 1989 Sanremo rally. A decoration was used for the occasion that immediately caught the eye. The typical white of the body had been replaced by a striking red, and the Martini blue stripes appeared "broken" and discontinuous. A decoration that Shunko has adapted to a 1/12 scale to fit like a glove on the Italieri kit . Now all you have to do is decide on the suspension configuration... are you more of asphalt or dirt?
