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. :)
Looks great! Lots of Tatra models out there. :)
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!
Yeah, a tutorial on wheels would be awesome, mikezax!! :)
Mikeaxe, I will be happy to read how you do your models so well. ;)
...thank you Rhaven Blaack:)

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! :)
