Not perfect, but it is coming close. But the sills, sliding roof, headlamps, rear number plate holder all don’t seem to have the right dimensions.
But as we reached the area showing the roots of the Volkswagen Beetle, full of KdF cars and early Beetle prototypes, I realized something was missing. If Volkswagen were sophisticated enough to give credit where credit is due to, say, Citroen for the DS, surely there would be at least one Tatra in the joint. After all, Ferdinand Porsche has admitted to at least being inspired by Hans Ledwinka’s Tatra designs. And even if he hadn’t admitted a thing, it’s tough to deny that the Beetle design wasn’t on some level influenced by the contemporary Tatra V570. So I asked my guide, a slick young Dutchman who had probably spent half his life with the company: “are there any Tatras in the Zeithaus? Where are they?”
My guide gave me a peculiar Dutch look that didn’t betray a thing. “Tatras?” he asked. “What’s a Tatra?”

The Czech Faro company, http://www.faro-src.com/, has launched a T 602 slot car. The model has been completely redesigned. The shapes of the front and rear ends, engraving and many details now fully correspond to the preserved documents. At the same time, interior and figures of the drivers (three versions) were redesigned, the new masters were also made for their heads (6 characters). Original photographs of the models have been moved into the gallery. The e-shop items therefore now have photographs of the serial models, as they are in stock. Like the Tatra Monopost T607, all known versions of the T602 were produced, which will gradually come to the market.
