* Curiosities for each models have been written from scratch and there are a lot more of them than on old

Below this tab there is another one - a complete work process on this model. This might be actual or archival (depending on information: "Model finished", "Work in progress..."). A table with description of work done was divided into more categories. Thanks to that there is no more chaos like on old, violet Both curiosities and work progress are related to the first model from GTA IV.
