    Hi all, another "small" project opened by myself/in meantime when workin´on Jelcz W640 JS/ and this project is called:

    Tatra 813 8x8 KOLOS / ETT (Extreme Truck Trial). Goes for model from ABC magazine /Czech Rep./ from year 2003 - designed by Vaclav Jancata - registred here as Vasek68. Model in scale 1:64 is printed on 2,5 pages of A4 format with optional cabine interior.

    First pictures are showing real truck in static position and in action. Then first pictures from built are showing frame from lower and upper side - compared to 1 EURO coin / or to ZIPPO lighter/ :D

    Hallo Raimund, trust that you will understand what am I going to do with this KOLOS - to hang it on the downhill /as showing picture of real truck with name INACTION/ - hope that over weekend will finish the wheels to make picture easier to see.

    Rick , if you order the model at Joseph - ask also for actual ABC mag., cause there will be Mercedes Benz Dakar /think ¨88/ in 1:100 - advanced MINIBOX model.
