um, i dont recall seeing a Skoda model but there may be a Rally Octavia model in resin. if you think Skodas are "wack" why do you ask about them? also i think the new Fabia looks pretty promising...

hmmmm. well skodas, not realy seen any models of them before, are we talking about the latest generation Octavia RS series or the extremely old versions.
Try searchign some german model sites and maybe there are some fanatics that have some there? good luck with the search dude

they are actualy owned by the volkswagen audi group, they are basicaly re badged vw's.

you get a lot for the money, but not any street cred, as the skoda brand was asociated with extremely poor build quality and reliability, that was until vw took it over.

well they are Russian made but not as common as say a Lada would be across the pond i dont imagine. i know theyre exported to the middle-east as well. but look for a resin kit... this would be the best bet like 1/43 scale there must be one or too.

nah i work in the construction industry, but did the first year of an industrial design degree, as well as a design based aprenticeship with the military, so i have a fair bit of experience on how to make stuff.

i raced a new skoda rs last night, very fast, only just beat him, they look great on the 18"s.

getting a good reputation now. keep it up dude

The Octavia RS is a good choice for a subtle but quick Q-car. Most people are too busy laughing at them to take them seriously, until they realise just how fast they are.

Very chippable too, seeing as they use the VAG 1.8T unit. I think its fairly cheap to get them up to 210hp, possibly even 225hp as in the Audi TT.

I've almost got over the image problem to consider one as my next car .... but not quite yet :lol:

my rs skoda does 60 in 5 seconds flat, its running 290hp @ the wheels, nos shots .... it does quarter miles in 14 seconds:smile:

not to be laughed at!
