Newsletter 553: SpotModel, for those who want more

SpotModel, for those who want more

SpotModel, for those who want more
A week ago we brought you news about the novelties that have been presented at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, some really tasty and interesting. However, some modelers are dissatisfied: they are only a few novelties, or this car or that motorcycle or truck has not been released... Clearly you can't please everybody, since scale modeling "maniacs" will always want more. But do we really have room at the desk or at home for more? XD

If so, there is nothing to worry about, because here in our warehouse we see how the range of novelties grows every week and the quality of the stuff is better every time. The skeptics or the insatiable just have to take a look at the list of novelties in the SpotModel newsletter, which is becoming more and more extensive, more interesting and brings us products that surprise us daily for their excellence.

So what do we have here that hasn't been seen at Nuremberg? Well, the announcement of Komakai's new book on the Audi R8 LMS Evo; the Decalcas paint masks for the Ford GT40 by Meng in 1/12 scale and for the K3 by Nunu; Shunko decals for renewing the Lotus Ford Type 72 kits in both 1/20 and 1/12 scale and for the BT50 in 1/20; the reissues of some Ferraris by MFH in 1/12 scale; or the new materials from AK Interactive, for starters. :)

The boss, the main consumer of SpotModel "candies", says that there's still room for more products on his workbench. How can this be possible?? How big is his table...? XD
