Decal-glue

Decal-glue

Legend has it that occasionally, mainly when you are assembling old scale models and after getting all decals in place... they fall off, peel off and detach magically from the model after a few days!

Relax...

Relax...

Here comes the frightful month of August... If you've ever been at the south of Spain during these dates, you'll know why is there the "frightful" adjective. It's hot, reaaaaaally hot, paint dries IN the airbrush, decals are just impossible to place unbroken, and all because this climate invites only to one thing: relax. The caribean spirit embodies everybody, and everything gets slowed down ;)

Behind the mask...
