    Mikezax, the pictures look great! As per forum rules, we do not allow linking t0 pictures. Please upload the above photos to your thread from your computer using the "Upload a file feature".. This is because too many threads have pictures disappear, leaving a useless thread. Thank You. :)

    Those wheels look like they should be checked for pressure regularly. They look like the real thing. Great job! :)

    Iagree! The wheels and tires look GREAT and the windscreen looks good also! Like to see how you put those wheels together!

    ...thank you Rhaven Blaack:)

    The model is finished,I will make a more detailed description:
    -Tatra 815 S1 appeared in ABC 24/26 (1981-82)
    The improvements:
    - added interior (I modified the interior dedicated to another Tatras)
    - on windows I used transparencies.
    - steering wheel improved rubber seal
    - I made 3D lights
    - On Rear-view mirrors I use a mirror foil
    - I improved wheels (with tread)
    - on the pollution truck I used dry yellow pastel and sand
    - I made the base from bulletin boards (A4)
    - I used brown and green powder
    - I made the pile sand from modeling clay and on the top I used sand
    - I used pallets who did toudi_sk to papermodelers.sk
    http://www.papermodelers.sk/viewtopic.php?f=154&t=5359&p=116723&hilit=palety#p116723
    - Bricks are cut from the chopsticks on Chinese food (painted white)
    - Wheelbarrow is from the Internet (adapted and scaled)
    - Buckets and shovels are made of paper and wire
    - The figurine is from kit MiniArt - British officers (painted on blue and on the top I used black dry pastel)

    These models don't look so appealing when they are flat pieces on a paper. It takes a special talent to bring this to life. You sure did. This is an awesome truck, and it wouldn't look that good if I did it, for sure! :)
