These are prototypes which either exist as TT scale models or can be modeled from existing models.

Recently, some friends and I were in the Ore Mountains. There I could take some photos with the camera of my friend.
(My own one is damaged and I lack the money to repair it or buy a new one.)
Few hours ago I got the files:

810 528-0, Bdtax783 50 54 24-29 533-3 and 810 411-9 of ČD during a layover in Moldava v Krušných Horách on August 6, 2012.

And here they are departing Moldava for Most about an hour after the picture above was made.

These railbuses can be modelled using Rubikon's M152.

To all: Here are some photos of some RTR 4 axle tank wagons (cisterns) (former Zeuke/BTTB), limited editions manufactured by Tillig for specialised shops in Czeck Republic only (?). Not found in any Tillig catalog. These articles are not produced anymore and are collectors' items.

I would not be too excited about them. Those cars have no prototype. Maybe Paramo rafinery had some similar tank cars, but definitely not these more than 60 years old ex-DRG tankcars. (CSD used such tankcars until 1960's though, so Zeuke's model is correct)
You can find many more "limited edition collector items" - as dozens of brewery reefer cars, some of them completely crazy. E.g. reefer used until 1950 with a beer billboard of a brand used only after 1995... :lol:

To jp: Thanks for the info! Good to know these kind of stuff. LVG1 has been releasing some information about some models, that I bet most of the people who buy these such products do not know if some of the models are really based on real life prototypes. I admit I'm one of them. I know Tillig released a lot of products on the market that did not make any sense. The company probably still continue doing it and many others probably. I think the company (ies) should not release these kind of models.
Anyhow! I just wanted to contribute to the list of models to fill up some gaps.
Please keep in touch!

I don't know what it's like in America; but here in Europe it's commonplace to sell pure advertizement models.
Especially frequently used are reefers with beer ad. They have a lot of fans. And many collectors only care about those beer cars. Other types—like tank cars—are less often used for this pourpose but do also have enough fans.
These advertizement cars are simply not supposed to be prototypical.

The "Opat" car has no prototype either.
No breweries in Czech use their own reefers, or any reefers at all. All beer is distributed by trucks.
There were very few exceptions. Some of the largest breweries shipped their beer to Sweden in reefers. Not very often. And those were not brewery reefers.
Any CD brewery reefer is a fake made for "beer enthusiasts".
The "Chodovar" containers are also fake, but the flat car should be OK.

I have a kit for AB Budweiser beer 36' reefer from 1930's. That was not a fake, but the reefer book said that the paint scheme was not used for a long time because for some reason the beer was disappearing from the reefers in that paint scheme. So neutral paint schemes were used instead, without the brewery name on them. And that was in 1930s.

Even here in Denmark, Carlsberg breweries do not use their logo on their beer trains Fredericia - Hoeje Taastrup.
