What a heart-stopping race end we had this past weekend. Because... what are 53 thousandths of a second? It is certainly less than the time it takes to open the latest model that you received from SpotModel. It's even faster than the time than it takes you to read this very short newsletter. We think that it is almost like the time it takes from when you see the latest release announced on our website until preorder it. XD

Jokes aside, Formula 1 is once again giving a spectacle like it hasn't been seen in a while, right? Now we just need the scale model manufacturers to cheer up our hobby a little and launch some of the current F1s in 1/43 or 1/20 scale, because it will surely take us less than 0.053 thousandths of a second to run out of stock... :D

What we definitely see is that if that happens, at SpotModel we want to be the first to tell it to you ;-)
