Velorex

Some years ago, one small and nice kit was presented on E Day, kit of one nice small car. I am far from car builder, but my friend Miloš Andrić from Pančevo, do prefer car kits, so free sample obtained there, were forwarded to him. Here is what he say about this small kit:

Velorex

Velorex was a manufacturing cooperative in Solnice, Czechoslovakia. Notable products included a small three-wheeled car, produced until 1971, and the Type 562 sidecar. “The power to move” A two cylinder Jawa motorcycle engine was used to power the final version of the Velorex. In a production run that lasted from 1945 to 1971, over 15,000 Velorex three wheelers were built with nearly a full half of the production being exported to other Socialist European countries.

Same kit comes in plastic bag and it was easy built. Paint was done in closest possible colors. Photos show it with Avia B534 Eduard 1/72 (previously built and present by Miloš) as well BMW Isetta 1/72 Hongwell/Cararama, vehicle from similar class as the Velorex belong. My big thanks goes to Eduard for this free material, Lubos Vinar who pick it up for me and Miloš for this so cute build!!
