Virtual Collection - what do we have so far?

Last time I haven’t done much for my hobby. Probably from now on it will be slower as it used to be. That’s why I want to make a small resume. This is the collection so far:
It is already more as the half of it.

Some models were made as Resin kits:

All models are for sale. Prices are, depending on complexity, around 150 Euro for 3D model and 400 Euro to prepare a production ready master model.

IZH 2126 Series 2 - An unknown hatchback

The development of a new model on the IZH factory started already in 1977. The serial production of the 2126 hovewer started only in 1990, and the cars were not that good...
