cheaper a car has to be, the more interesting it is. You fight for small Lamborghini. And I actually believe that one day Dacia will beat Renault.

Why will they? To me, their positioning is much stronger and clearer.

The brand might be rather cheap right now, but in ten years they will be strong enough to produce a more expensive range of models.

Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen. And the story of the Trabant, nicknamed “Trabi” – probably the oddest creation of German automotive engineering. From 1957 to 1991, the Trabi was manufactured in Zwickau by Sachsenring. After a hiatus of 20 years it’s possible that it will be manufactured here

pauses. “For me, they are the images

of the fall of 1989. Jubilant people, driving across the border in

their Trabis. People leaning out of car windows and waving. The Trabant is not a symbol of weakness, but of

unity, of joy. A positive symbol that gives you a head start when you want to position a brand.”

Six months later, they presented their study at the IAA at a tiny

booth, squeezed in between the giants ADAC and Opel. “Probably the

smallest booth that the IAA had ever seen,” says Poschwatta today. What he doesn’t say is that this booth was just as busy as the really big ones. The reason, of course, could be the brand‘s name. After all, the

Instruc� tions Expedition Vehicle TATRA 815 GTC The cut-out paper model of this vehicle is in a scale of 1:43 and also suitable for beginners. Please read the following instructions carefully before you start. As this magazine is printed on thin paper, you need to reinforce some parts: Mount the following parts onto thin cardboard: 2x 11, 30, 31, 62, 2x64. Spray mount parts 2, 3, 4, 5, 32, 33, 37, 39, 50, 54, 55 onto paper of same thickness as the one you are holding in your hands now. Before cutting out part 32, draw thin lines in places marked as A-A, B-B, C-C and D-D. The vehicle is white, if you wish to paint some graphics or a nice piece of graffiti on the side - do it now. Best suited are large panels such as parts 32, 2 or 3. Cut wooden rods (or XXL- toothpicks) to length suggested in parts 72, 73, 4x 74 and 75. These will be the axles for the wheels. Get a flat square rod 1x1 mm, cut it to the length indicated in part 77 and paint it grey. Once you start cutting out the parts, but before glueing them together, you will need to fold them in the right direction. See the diagram next to these instructions. Spaces that need to be cut out are indicated by crossed red lines. Space for wheel axles is indicated by crossed black linesjust punch them out.

Let´s start the assembly. Carefully cut out part 1, attach windscreen 6 and sides - left 2 and right 3. Attach rear part 4 to the cabin, finish with the roof 5. Glue bumper 7 to front face 1, numberplate 8 and finish the windscreen by glueing windscreen wipers 2x 9. Complete the cabin by glueing air condition 10, signal lights 2x 48 and 2x 49; attach spotlights 2x 12, 13, 14. Don´t forget 2x 11. Cut and glue wheel arches, left 15 and right 16, attach parts 28 and 31 on the left; 27 and 30 on the right wheel arch. Glue parts 17, 18, 19 and 20 on marked positions. The cabin is finished - put it away and let it dry. We move on to the chassis now. Glue part 21 together, connect part 22 and beam 23 together with the rims 2x 29. Attach beam 23 to part 22 through axles 72 and two wheels 2x 64. The front axles shall be swinging slightly to the sides. Next task is the completion of rear axles. Glue part 24 together, as well as swing arms 25 and 26, into which you glue beams of rear wheels - axles 4x 74. Attention - these have to stick out approx. 8- 9 mm and be perpendicular! Attach beams fitted this way with help of axles 75 and wheels 2x 63 to part 24. When building both axles follow instruction illustrated on this page. Put the chassis away and let it dry. In the meantime, continue with the coachwork. Cut out part 32, paste in main bridging structure 35 and smaller parts 2x 36 onto the sides. Complete the rear part by glueing windscreen 34 with wiper arm 41. Glue recess 38 into the roof and finish off by glueing parts 39 and face 37. Take windscreen wipers 42 and 43, glue them onto part 39, two mirrors - left 47 and right 46, and beam 77. While working, place the coachwork on a straight surface and keep on checking if it twists. Continue with reinforcing part 32. Glue reinforcement pieces 2x45 on position indicated by thin lines A-A, B-B, C-C and D-D. Close up the whole assembly with bottom part 44. Once dry, glue the finished coachwork and the cabin onto chassis 21.

It´s time to move on to the rear part 50. Attach part 51 as well as mud flaps 52 and 53. Glue all these to the chassis, where indicated. After that model left side of underbody 54, glue exhaust pipe 58 and 59 to the bottom, complete the whole thing with mud flap 57 and glue everything to the chassis. Repeat the procedure for the right side of underbody, using parts 55 and 62. Glue two tanks, 60 and 61, as well as mud flap 56 to the chassis. Almost finished, we continue with wheels.

FRONT WHEEL

First work on front wheels: The outer side of the wheels consists of part 66, 68 and 69. Attach disc part 70 and finish the piece by glueing the boundary 65 and inner side 67. Work on the next wheel the same way, and glue both wheels permanently onto axles 73. Finish the wheels by glueing the face part 71. Always cross reference with drawing above. The rear wheel is almost the same. The outer side of the wheel consists of part 66, 68 and 69. Attach disc 70 and finish the piece by glueing the boundary 65 and inner side 66. Now repeat the procedure for remaining three wheels. Once finished, glue all wheels on axles 74, attach discs 76 and glue with a drop of glue. the last piece to be attached is face 71 - just follow the instruction drawing - the wheels will be turning freely. The whole kit is finished now. To achieve a better result and to protect it, you can spray it with a thin clearcoat film. Enjoy!

intended to ensure optimal axle load distribution and acceleration. The

result is a fun vehicle for plunging into huge masses of snow, a mode of

transportation for adverse winter conditions, a lifestyle object for today’s freeskiers and snowboarders, or a fast-moving machine for hunters

or scientists – I don’t mind. But in my opinion, today’s snowmobiles look way too heavy, without demonstrating emotion or agility.” Vasiliy Kanevskiy
