  1. Hallo Friend antonio-i
    “A soldier of the German motorized infantry.” – this is not right, this is a Member of “MP” Nazi-Miltary Police “Feldgendarmerie” the German soldiers speek : “Kettenhunde” because these Feldgendarmerie kill the german soldiers of Wehrmacht , they shot down.
    i hope you understand me.

  2. Wow! Unfortunately, Dr.I and SPAD are only models. I wonder how many of them are circulating around the world – I remember I saw 1:1 maquette of the Dreidecker involved in some kind of advertising campaign in local supermarket.

  3. I would love to have the opportunity just to look at the cutaway of the ZAZ 968 so that I could compare it to the designs of the Tatra T97, KDF-wagen (AKA VW Kafer), Corvair and NSU Prinz. I have to wonder how similar it’s design was to contemporary cars of a similar design and what adaptations the Soviet engineers made to make it work in local conditions.
