Newsletter 607: Happy people

Happy people

Happy people
Put several thousand models together, include several hundred modelers from all over Europe, add in a perfect organization and... what do you get? A bunch of totally happy people who go home with a big smile on their face that lasts for several weeks. It's the magic of the annual event held in Jabbeke this past weekend, where we enjoyed what we like most: drinking beers... XDD

Well, we also talked a lot about models, decals, photo-etched parts, tools, we admired our friends' models, we met new attendees and we took the opportunity to buy one box or two... We scale modelers are like that. :)

There, the best of the best of European modeling was seen, with brutal scratch-made trucks, fiction vehicles, giant dioramas, 3D printed or resin cast or centrifuged metal or injected plastic scale models... many motorcycles, many cars, many trucks and the best: many good friends.

Next year SpotModel will be at Jabbeke again. Are you in?

This decal sheet is designed to replace those of the Lotus 97T Fujimi kit in any of its versions, and allows you to choose between the decoration used in the Portuguese GP or the Belgian GP. The color chosen for the logos is the same dark beige as the real car. Being designed from scratch, this decal sheet includes some logos not included in the original kit decals. Since the original Fujimi kit has a slightly incorrect shape at the rear end of the hood, the decal instructions include how to modify it, and decals for that area whether you carry out the modification or not and decide to leave the hood as it comes with the kit.

SK Decals Reference: SK-24068

Decal sheet to make the version of the Volvo 240 Turbo that achieved victory (number #6) in the 1985 Macau race. A race that was mostly decided even before the start, since two of the big favorites to victory they had to retreat without starting. The first was Ravaglia, who broke the clutch of his BMW, and the second was the teammate of the eventual winner, Lindström (number #7), whose Volvo had electrical problems. And the start ended up defining the winner, when Berger had a bad start, getting trapped behind several inferior Japanese cars that he had to overtake, but by then Brancatelli was already too far away.
