Tatra 87 - 1/72 - Zikmund & HanzelkaAttack Hobby Kits

January 16, 2023 · in Automotive · · 10 · 0.8K

I just finished "small" project Tatra 87 driven by Zikmund & Hanzelka popular Czechslovakia travelers
Hanzelka and Zikmund, were a duo of Czech adventurers known for their travels in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Oceania in the 1940s and 1950s, and for the books, articles, and films they created about their journeys

This specific travel all around the world and it is one of models that I want to have in my collection. It was preaty complicated build because the quality of kit is not good, but I did my best 😉
A few upgrades was made in this model, changed all windows, engine cover, front and rear bumbers and lot more.

  1. Great little model, Radek, and interesting story, I like your photographs, too.

  2. This is amazing, Radek @bradeq
    Modelling at micro scale level and achieving this wonderful result requires a lot of skills.
    Well done.

  5. A fantastic result, Radek!

  6. The car is right out of "Buck Rogers" with the fin in the back. The photos show a car doing what a Jeep could do to some degree. The build and kit are a jewel Radek.

    Two thumbs up.

    Smashed the like button.

  7. Beautiful work in such a small scale and a difficult kit. What an interesting subject also, you really made the most of it. It stands up well under magnification, which says a lot about the quality of your work.

  8. Wow, what a little jewel Radek @bradeq ! 😀 Your work is exquisite and I just loved the photos from Hanzelka and Zikmund's adventure. Thank you for this article! 🍻
