Newsletter 609: Refueling

Refueling

Refueling
Nowadays, the usual thought among drivers in motorsport competitions is "I'll go one more lap and stop in the pits to refuel", knowing that the liters of precious liquid they need are waiting for them there. But this has not always been so. There was a time when the thought was more like "I don't even have time to finish this lap, I should have put more fuel at the gas station..."

It was a time when gasoline did not go towards the racing machines, but instead the racing machines were the ones that had to go to the gas station for refueling. Something unthinkable today in Formula 1, for instance... but luckily, times change. :)

DAB Models has looked back and offers us in 1/24 scale three of the most used gasoline pumps in gas stations located on racing circuits, designed in great detail, produced with 3D printing and with the necessary decals included. In addition, the brand tells us that they are working on other accessories of the time, which we are eagerly awaiting to be able to decorate and complete our bases, vignettes and dioramas.

Remember that at SpotModel you have the best gas station to refuel on a scale...

In the 60s, in the automobile world, design prevailed over other features, and that trend also reached gas stations, where the pumps of each of the brands became a symbol of differentiation. If you are a lover of the 60s, don't miss the opportunity to accompany any of your models with one of the pumps that the Shell oil company had in its service stations. Reproduced in great detail by DAB Models, they include the decals with the logos and the counter clock for litres of fuel refuelled and a practical pre-cut acetate to simulate glass. Precious!

KMP Kool Models Production Reference: KMP-TK24242

The Porsche 911 was a regular in rallies for several decades, and over time several evolutions could be seen, where such recognizable elements of the 911 as its rear spoiler underwent numerous changes. They are not all the same! That is why KMP has designed the different spoilers used by the Porsche 911 SC RS. This reference reproduces the one used in most versions sponsored by Bastos and during the 1984 season. The piece is totally different from the one included in the kit, and will help you give your model that extra touch of precision that it deserves. No major modifications to the kit are necessary for assembly.
