The Tatra 148 was a truck produced in Czechoslovakia by the Tatra company. First produced in 1968, the Tatra 148 only really took over from its predecessor, the Tatra 138, in 1972, when its production was stopped. The only externally evident difference was the slightly squarer design of the Tatra 148‘s typical rounded bonnet. Technically, the new model was fitted with a more powerful, 210-hp engine and the load capacity could be increased from 12 tonnes for the Tatra 138 to 15 tonnes for the Tatra 148. Like its predecessor, the Tatra 148 was delivered almost exclusively as a three-axle truck with all-wheel drive. Until production was stopped in 1982, a total of 113,647 Tatra 148s in all versions were built, which clearly demonstrates the technical quality and success of this Tatra model.
This Schuco 1/43 scale model is a replica of the military version of the Tatra T148. It bears the insignia of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic (ČSSR) which was the name of Czechoslovakia from 1960 to 1990 when the country was under communist rule.
This model makes for a wonderful addition to your historical diecast collection.
