Black
Black? Black glue? Who needs a black glue? Does it make any sense? Why and what is the purpose of a glue that is visible once it is dry? Great modeling questions to which we are going to give you some answers.

Besides the usual gluing, a black glue also helps to make it visible. Yes, that's right. And what's the point of seeing a drip of black glue on our models if that's exactly what we've always tried to avoid at all costs? Well, Japanese modelers, who are the most daring on the planet, have realized that using black cyanoacrylate you can perfectly see what the surface looks like after applying glue, something that does not happen with the transparent one. And what do they use that for? Well, beyond just gluing, they use it to fill small gaps and surfaces in such a way that the file and sandpaper work is really quick and easy. How smart are these guys!!!

This has led us to add Colle21's black Cyanoacrylate to our long list of products, which will arrive to SpotModel shelves in the next few days.

And you, are you joining the black glue trend with SpotModel? :D

Perhaps because they are built with more logic and less from passion, some of the Japanese supercars do not have the same cachet as the models of some other supercar brands, but what is widely demonstrated is that at the level of performance, the Japanese have nothing to envy the most renowned European models. And the Nissan GT-R, heir to the almighty Skyline, equipped with a powerful 3.8-liter biturbo V6 engine, was a monster. The kit contains approximately 515 plastic and metal parts, all of them pre-painted and ready to be assembled. Once the assembly is completed, the doors open revealing their interior, as does the engine hood and the trunk lid. As is usual in Ixo Collections models, it has functions to control the engine sound and the activation of the front and rear lights. An exceptional reproduction with extreme attention to detail.
