Newsletter 574: Being the first

Being the first

Being the first
What is the greatest achievement in any race? It's quite clear: arrive first at the finish line. Teams strive to develop the latest technologies and provide them to their drivers, and these use those technologies at the highest level lap after lap for achieving that coveted goal. It is that simple, right? :-)

Of course, when it comes to model all that circus in scale, things are not much different. You all want to be the first to get that new scale model, or to know about that new detail up part, or to get your hands on some new livery... For doing so, here at your favourite team we developed the one thing you absolutely need to reach that goal: the "notificator" :-)

Instead of staying all day at SpotModel website hitting the refresh button of your browser (which you are very welcome to do, but we think there are better thinks to do and particularly during summertime), you can just add ANYTHING you want to "the notificator", and it will take care of the rest :-) Do you need to know when one given product gets more pictures, or gets in stock, or is going to sell out, or gets a price reduction? Just "add it to your notifications" (using the button intuitively labeled with that exact text) and it will send you an email the very moment that happens. Are you a total fan of Komakai or any other manufacturer? Just browse to that manufacturer and click on the notify button, and the "notificator" will send you an email the very moment we add a new product from that manufacturer.

Want to be more specific? No problem :-) You can filter any manufacturer or any category to be as specific as you need (for instance, "Decals for Formula 1 cars in 1/20 scale of the 80's" or "Rally cars by Tamiya in 1/24 scale"), and add that specific filter to your notifications instead. Does our filtering tools fall short to you? Are you just crazy about "decals in 1/24 scale manufactured by Reji model under 25 euros of Valentino Rossi driving a Rally car instead of a motorcycle"? (we all have our things, right?) Just use the power of our search engine to narrow down your search as much as you need, add that particular search to your notifications, and you'll get an email every single time we add a new decal under 25 euro manufactured by Reji in 1/24 scale of Valentino Rossi driving a Rally car to our website (but don't expect a daily email :-). Quite powerful, right? :-)

However, keep in mind that you're not alone at the race track! Notifications are sent instantly to every single customer around the world (there are already a few of you) and, just like in motor racing, the competition is really hard :-) If you get an email from the notificator... hit on the gas pedal immediately! Believe us, it won't be the first time (or the hundredth) that we had to double and triple check the photo finish to see which customer gets the very last unit of a given product :-)

And if you're just a total scale model freak like us, just subscribe to the home page or to the "What's new" section to get notifications about ANY new products added at SpotModel. Then you can unsubscribe from our weekly newsletter if you wish... but you'll miss all the great weekly pictures, the custom made recommendations and our always funny comments! ;-)

But some of its owners are not satisfied with having such an exclusive car within the reach of very few, and they still go a little further, decorating their car in an almost unique way. This has given rise to incredible decorations that, thanks to S.K. Decals can now also be transferred to your Aoshima kit of the Aventador LB Works. One of those chosen honors the courageous Japanese fighter pilots aboard the famous Mitsubishi A6M Zero (note, we are talking about planes), adapting its colors to those of the car with the characteristic red circle of the Japanese flag.
