    Hello people!

    This is something that has been in the making for a little so i thought i should share here on a thread and as a 1000th forum mesaage.

    So what is this?
    This is my new main modding project where i have set the goal to create the single most realistic digital depiction of the Wartburg 353 and 1.3. The Wartburg was a DDR (East Germany/GDR) market car that was made from the 60s all the way up to '91. the 353 is a body on frame, front wheel drive car with all independent suspension and a longitudinally mounted 2-Stroke Inline-3 engine. It was a revolutionary car in many ways but was never really further updated until 1989 where it gained a 1.3 vw motor and a small facelift as the 1.3. It is a very obscure car with lots of interesting history and i want to try to imortalize it in digital form via BeamNG.Drive. I want to include every version the car was sold in (At first only in sedan form as the other bodystyles require quite a lot of extra work) including obscure prototypes and some common tuning parts for these cars


    353

    1.3

    Who is involved in this?
    Vanil(me): Modeling, texturing, jbeam
    @GregDDR : Refference pictures, info on the cars, configs, quality control
    @Solarpower07 :Maybe jbeam help in the future

    What is the current progress and how will it go on?

    upload_2022-2-6_15-27-8.png
    What is done is most of the bodyshell for the 1.3 as we just had more material on this version of the Wartburg. This is as close in detail as i can get it in its dimensions, bodylines, details, and proportions.
    When that is done i will most likely start the chassis of the car and then get it in the game as a test. After than i will finish the body, and start the engine probbaly

    The first real repo mod?
    Because of an apparent loophole it is entirely possible to upload real cars to the repository if no one owns the copyright to it anymore wich is the case here. So that means if this is finished it will be the first real beamng car on the repository.

    How can you help?
    If you happen to have any info on the car and or parts made for it please post them here in the tread so we can have as much accuracy as possible.

    Thank you for your time reading this, let me know what you guys think of the idea!

    well, technically, the HellJeep was the first repo mod, but that was a modified rock crawler from 5 years ago. this looks promising, im exited!

    **edit**
    i was wrong, it was the hellhopper, so yes, this will be the first real repo mod.

    It was called HellJeep before the Hopper was added into the game so initially you were right

    i get BIG vibes this mod wont get finished for some reason (probably because the mod currently isnt even ingame and is also an entirely real car without even different badging, just seems that mods like these get cancelled more often)

    Nacho has been modding for a while, I'm pretty sure it'll happen as long as the dimensions and references are easy to find.
