This car served in Czechoslovak army during second half of the fifties
of last century.
camouflage and marking was realized according to the known picture
published in ”Canceled Wings” book. This car participated on tests
of second prototype of HC-2 helicopter. On the picture you can see the
crew of Tatra receiving some document from the crew of helicopter
hovered above them. This test was probably done in 1957.
The decal of
identification marking is the result of my first attempt to print my own
decals by OKI (ALPS) DP-5000 jet. I have no idea if the rear
identification marking was same as front one therefore I realized it as
identical and covered it behind spare wheel.
I would like
to know if my solution is correct therefore please contact me if anybody
has some reference concerning the back of this car. The model was built
straight from the box without any bigger modifications.
concerning this kit is not positive. I had some problems building this
model and also front fenders are not realized enough accurate according
to the pattern.
two etched brasses sets (PART and EXTRATECH) could maybe solve this
problem are available on market but their prices are too high for me.
