Hi folks,

I didn´t manage to finish this project in time for Halloween, but I think it´s still scaring enough today (not only because of her paint scheme)...! :p

The lil´ Skoda was a highly sought after car in the former GDR, but some of them found their way to Western Germany as well (a school friend of mine had a dark red one back in 1985 - great color for those cars, as it was the best camouflage for all the rust...). Today it´s an extinct species, so I just had to raise a little monument!

Here´s the first (and probably last) one I built for my track:









I had a lot of fun doing the molds and casting that car, but detail painting was a royal pain in the you-know-where, so please don´t ask for finished cars. Of course kits are available as usual in limited quantities...

Greetings from Germany,

Claus

Nice one Claus...

It looks tiny (not a bad tiny either). Is looks as though it's about the same size as the Lancia Delta? Another uniquely "CH" bod!! :thumbsup::thumbsup: nd

Claus - as usual, a simple car made to look highly detailed with your modeling. The body's fit over the tires is absolutely perfect.
I like sedans for running t-jets.

Whoa...

... never thought this ugly lil´ Czech limo would catch so much interest here!!! :eek:

Thanks guys for all the nice comments - although I did this project (as always) for my own fun and pleasure in the first place, it´s great to see that this little critter made some more guys smile! :)

Errr, BTW: The 2 trackside babes aren´t very criticising: The one on the right is ALWAYS waving as soon as a camera points at her (I call her "Paris"...). The other girl (with the purse on her shoulder) is probably not the brightest either. Whenever I see her, she´s standing there. Always wondering how she earns her living...! Although they´re both a bit featherbrained, I somehow like ´em, so they´re definitely NOT for sale (I sometimes enjoy my cute and dumb 2 trackside blondes...)! :hat:

For all of you who are interested in testing and/or improving their skills in detail painting :p: Just drop me a PM or eMail and we´ll work out a deal (HT member special: 15 $ per kit + shipping or trade for chassis, hop-up parts or whatever you might have)!

Thanks again, guys! :wave:

Have a great weekend!

Greetings from Germany,

Claus
