    Hi everybody, let me introduce a new model to be issued in Czech Rep. as of September this year /now under my beta-test/ of designer Roman Hruska.
    Model 1:32will be printed on 8pages of A4 /containing bonus models in scale 1:100 and 1:300/ - very detailed model with cabine interior.

    Let me know pls if anybody from "here" would like to have this model - that can arrange sale via Joseph´s SPI models and to prepare english version of built instruction.

    thank you

    ps picture showing actual version of beta test /with additional patina-coating with coloured-chalks dust/

    OK Rick - will advise author as well as Joseph and will start with translating, but now see the 12valves V construction air cooled engine.

    Trust that can hear the noise :D

    /next model to be issued by Roman Hruska should be TATRA 8x8 Dakar´88 TOTAL/

    i wish i did.

    the only two i remember are the Turbo Twin 1986 and Turbo Twin 2 1987

    I just moved back to the USA in late 1987, so i missed Dakar 1988, and the Turbo Twin 1988

    you might want to email the De Rooy team at www.dakar-derooy.com and see if they are willing to help

    i wish i had more info on the 1988 Turbo Twin myself

    the bigger version of the Tatra 8x8 will be a welcome addition to my collection, i built the Minibox version, and you can see the build thread here
