On fire!!!

On fire!!!
As many of you know, SpotModel is located in the south of Spain, at the Costa del Sol. A destination that many choose to enjoy on vacation due to its climate, beaches, gastronomy, atmosphere and the large number of nice cars that can be seen on the streets XD

But, and precisely for that reason, things get a bit complicated in summer due to the large number of tourists who visit us and the high temperatures recorded by the thermometer, especially high this year. We have so much, soooooo much heat that the airbrush feels like a little dragon spitting fire... Despite this, our level of addiction to scale models is such that we just can't stop using it ;)

This month of August starts very calmly in terms of new products and with some delays by almost every manufacturer, who have the good habit of going on vacation on these dates. Still we have new references by Decalcas, some reeditions by Studio27 and a lot of announcements from Model Factory Hiro, Blue Stuff and KMP.

In case you don't know, at SpotModel we don't go on vacation... we love working for you every day of the year. :D
