Mercedes 230 G

Some time ago I had the opportunity to get into a car that looked quite "square", "sober", I dare to say even "boring", but I got a huge surprise... because under that lamb skin lies a true beast endowed with a truly robust mechanic. Unlike modern 4x4, this machine has very few electronic devices, it is all pure mechanics, and this makes the Mercedes 230 G a very sought-after jewel among extreme 4x4 lovers since you can repair almost any breakdown that could happen to you with just a screwdriver and a monkey wrench.

The closed ESCI brand had the chance to recreate the Mercedes 230 G in 1/24 scale a looooooong long time ago, and Italeri lads have managed to rescue the molds and re-edit, for a limited time, the original model... Bravo!!! No doubt you have to put a little love on it if you are an extreme modeler, but you will be able to enjoy a correct kit and spend some good times with it :)

Engage the reduction gear and climb to SpotModel's website, you'll have a great time!!!

Panic!!!

No, we're not joking at all: it has been officially discontinued... let the panic spread! Why? What happened? What have I missed? Well, this means that in case you didn't preorder it, you have missed the re-edition of the Porsche 934 by Tamiya in 1/12 scale, nothing less :(

Back in August, we notified you through our newsletter about the release of the reissue of this coveted kit, a few weeks ago we opened the "preorder" period, and a few days ago Tamiya supplied the exact quantities for serving all those who preordered the product. One, two, three and it's gone, there are no more, no more units have been casted and everything looks like no more units will be produced. It is not yet 100% confirmed, but at the moment that is the information provided by the manufacturer: The Porsche 934 has been a limited re-edition and it is already discontinued.

We hope that, if you wanted to get this model, you have been one of the ultrafast preorders already served, but if not, we are terribly sorry about it... The only thing we can do now is to advise you to fully squeeze all the possibilities our website offers: use the product alerts and the option to preorder for those products you are sure you wish and don't want to miss.

If you want a novelty, just trust SpotModel or the panic will spread again :D

Laurus nobilis

One more time, the mighty Carlos Sainz made our lives happier again proving to be unbeatable, this time at the Dakar 2020. Yes, once again, he has taken the laurels (Laurus nobilis) in which possibly is the toughest rally in the world. No doubts, although it seems otherwise, it has not been an easy task. There are a few factors to fight against: the characteristics of the challenge, the fierce competition and the age of the driver (57 years old), which although it does not seem to influence at all, it even adds more merit to such feat.

How does he do it? Dexterity, experience, lots of training and tons of cold blood. For instance, for the past few months it has been 6 hours a day in a sauna to acclimatize his body to high temperatures. What nobody knows is that every time he entered the sauna with some sandpaper in one hand and a scale model in the other...

At the end of the race and after getting the victory, he declared to the media: "I'm just looking forward to get home to see what news SpotModel has this week"... XD

Mighty Sainz!!! :D

Nuremberg 2020

Scale-modeling-wise, the New Year doesn't start on January 1st but later this month. And why? Very easy: because it is at the end of January when the Toy Fair is held in Nuremberg, where every manufacturer worth their salt shows the "candy" they will use to tempt us during the rest of the year :)

The fair opened doors a few hours ago and we have already been able to meet and delight ourselves with a few "sweets". The first of them, the Porsche 934 in 1/12 scale, a re-edition of the Tamiya classic, but this time including photo-etched parts and the Vaillant livery belonging to the 1976 German GT Championship.

Tamiya's second jewel has surprised everyone, frankly no one expected it: nothing less than the Ford Mustang GT4 in 1/24 scale. Wow!!!!

Italeri, for their part, announced the Lancia Delta HF 16v in 1/12 scale as their shinny new release, as well as several re-editions of veteran Esci (Mercedes 450 SLC, Jeep Renegade, Jeep CJ7, ...) and Protar (BMW 1000 and Yamaha Tenere, both in Dakar versions) kits.

Do not miss SpotModel website, we will publish more news during these days!!!! :D

Nuremberg 2020 - Part 2

The Toy Fair at Nuremberg continues its course and we publish an extra newsletter to keep you up to date with all the news that this great event brings us.

In addition to what we already told you in the previous bulletin, Tamiya premiered the Toyota GR Supra in 1/24 scale, the new "carbon" edition of the Kawasaki Ninja H2 in 1/12 scale and, on top of that, a great invention: the masking tape specially designed for 1/24 and 1/20 scale model cars, which includes a thin opaque plastic to make your paint job even easier.

Revell presents this year several re-editions of classic models, among which we highlight the Mercedes 300 SLR in 1/12 scale, the Jaguar E-Type Coupe, the beautiful Chevrolet Corvette that performed as Pace Car in the American Indy by the end of 70s, and the BMW i8 with new parts. And another fantastic surprise: the Volkswagen Transporter T2 Bus in 1/24 scale!!! :D

Ebbro doesn't tell anything new, but they have shown the Matra MS11 in 1/12 scale as a work in progress, although they have not given many clues about the product. Belkits let us see the first injection test of the Metro 6r4 , which looks reaaaaaaaally interesting.

Soon we will have dates and prices, and they all will be open for "Pre-order" at SpotModel. Add them to your notifications if you want to be the first to find out!!! :D

Show me the money

A few months ago we launched the Print Lab, which many of you already know, allowing you to turn your designs into actual decals you can use in your models, a breakthrough thanks to the exclusive digital decal printing technology by SpotModel.

But as you also know, we are always looking to push things a bit further, and that's why we have created Print Lab Marketplace: now, in addition to uploading your designs to get custom printed decals, you can choose to put them up for sale so that other people interested in that design can also purchase printed copies. Watch out! Of course, nobody will ever have access to your original digital files, but anyone will be able to buy a printed copy of the decal designed by you, and the best thing is that... you decide the profit you want to get back for each printout sold at the store!! You can track your sales, and when they are shipped, your profits will be accounted to your SpotModel wallet. Some extra money that will be great for indulging in your modeling whims ;)

You have all the information already available at the Print Lab section. You design, and SpotModel empowers you to sell your decals all around the planet! :)

MP4/7

In 1992, the Formula 1 World Championship seemed to have a clear favorite team, the safest bet. A white and fluorescent orange machine, equipped with a Honda engine, the latest in electronic technology, and Senna and Berger at the wheel. Did anyone doubt about McLaren's supremacy after sweeping their rivals with their car in the previous year?

Race by race there came the technical problems, and the season ended with McLaren signing a second place in the World Championship after several years of glorious victories. Even so, the MP4/7 is a magnificent machine that every modeler should build at least once in a lifetime.

And for getting your model to the top, what's better than using the new MFH book packed with photographs taken nowadays, with great detail, close-ups of the mechanics, cockpit,... Absolutely essential!!! And the best thing is that you can already preorder yours at SpotModel :D

As Gerhard Berger said: "There's nothing better than taking a race car to the limit", and it's even better if it is in scale!!

Humbrol

The oldest ones in town, those of us who started assembling scale models long before wheel and fire were invented, used some paintings that were forgotten with the past of the centuries. Those smelly and thick paints by "Molak", those square jars from "Pactra" and, of course, those tiny little Humbrol's paint cans that NEVER ran out... XD

Well, for all those of us who began at that time when there were no photo-etched parts, no acrylic paintings, and no one used an airbrush, we have managed to bring back Humbrol's paints. YAAAAYYYYYYYY!!! The containers are the same as always but with a new look, and of course they include freshly manufactured paint so you can use the most traditional painting techniques.

We have already activated a good part of their color ranges and will add more and more tones in the next few days. However, if you miss anyone, just send us an email to info@spotmodel.com and we will look for the colors you need.

SpotModel, for both the novelty maniacs and the most nostalgic modelers :-D
