20th Anniversary
Yes, it sounds incredible to us too: SpotModel is now 20 years old... It seems like it was yesterday when the products you could find at SpotModel only occupied a couple of small shelves.

Some of you have been with us from the very beginning and have seen us grow, others have just discovered us... and you can't imagine how exciting both circumstances are for us.

Whenever we have the opportunity, we thank you for being there and trusting SpotModel, just as we are happy and brag about how much we like our work and how we strive to do it as best as possible.

Now it's time to continue fulfilling your dreams and continue growing, looking for new paths to surprise you and satisfy all your scale modeling concerns. In fact, soon we will tell you more details about a succulent new concept that we are developing... :)

20 years of SpotModel... and counting! :D
