RTR model of 2 axle refridgeretor wagon of CSD with the inscriptions of "PRAZDROJ" brewery, era III (?) marked IV on the box ) which I think it is wrong, manufactured by former Zeuke in cooperation with LPH (former Czechoslovakia), I might be wrong about this. The article number of this model is 4131. The model is not manufactured anymore, it is very hard to find. I am not sure if it is prototypicaly correct.

RTR 4 axle tank wagon, of CSD, era IV, model manufactured by former Zeuke (in this case former BTTB), article number 5412. Tillig never released a new version of this car. I'm not sure if this wagon is prototypicaly correct.

No, this is not prototypicaly correct. Pilsner Urquell brewery used their own beer reefers, but the model is a boxcar CSD class Ztr.

This one is correct. It is ex-DRG tank car. Some of them were left in Czechoslovakia after WW2.
If you want to go in detail, the trucks are not quite correct. I have seen a photo of the prototype somewhere. Correct trucks are available as brass etched kit from one of the Czech small manufacturers.

Edit: here it is

and the correct truck:

Thanks jp! A few years back (2004-2005) I've purchased some bogies (trucks) and some other accesories (platforms, plastic gears, cabins, air horns, etc.)made by different manufacturers, from a shop over the INTERNET , http://www.hobby-shop.cz/, probably you are familiar with it. Pretty good stuff, a lot of things that are hard to find, big selection, but the prices were/are kind of high and I did not like the payment method (bank transfer). I stopped buying from them. Talking about the bogies, these bogies I've purchased are like the one in your photo (made out of brass), they were moulded in plastic and came in form of a kit also. I've purchased just enough for 2 cars (I should have bought more). They are suitable for BTTB/Tillig e.g. 15110 (and the others in that family). One thing I've realised that the 4 axle tankers manufactured bu TT CLUB BERLIN have the correct bogies (same like in your photos).

Part 1.
Double decker of former BTTB, of CSD, era III. This model it is being modified at the moment. The model was purchased as second hand, so please ignore the round flag. I know it does not belong anywhere on this car.

Part 2.
Model has been adapted with new buffers, bottom and the moving sections at both ends have been painted to match the body, the first set of side windows after the control cab have been covered, extra raised framed windows(not completed yet) on the sides after the first set of side windows (and the control cab) have been added, lettering highlighted in deep yellow, needs extra vents on the roof, the diaphragms (accordion type) between coaches have been painted (not shown), so they are not original black anymore,center window at the end of the coach has been covered.
This one has a real life prototype for sure.

Czechoslovakia never had train sets with control cabs of this type.
Their 50 train sets were delivered without control cabs and never got some.

So, especially regarding the wind shields I doubt that a real life prototype existed.

Thanks LVG1. I'm still working on this model, still need to do a lot of modifications. Soon will look just like prototype.
