Below you can find official interesting curiosities related to this model and version. Tab "curiosities" has been additionaly expaned by few segments, thanks to that you can find specific information easier. Additionally, unlike the old site, some curiosities may have pictures showcasing it.

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


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 mods.darewnoo.pl. Both curiosities and work progress are related to the first model from GTA IV.

> Daewoo-FSO Polonez Bella DC Hearse 1998 - curiosities

Things related to www.mods.darewnoo.pl


• This model was made in complete secret. Nobody would ever expect that model. It was published in November 2015, together with three other bonus Polonez Plus versions (Cargo, Ambulance and Armored).

Changes in content of the final folder compared to the previous models

-

Testers and authors of the screenshots


• Both the tester and the author of screenshots is darewnoo. The model was also tested by Zymku.

Things that were planned, but not added

• The “Bella” inscription at the back was supposed to be random, but was placed permanently during the work.

• All golden inscriptions on the body were supposed to be random, but due to technical reasons there were placed permanently, with a possibility to remove them by replacing the texture.

• The ornament stickers were supposed to be chrome.

• The model should have four halogen lights in the interior.

• One of the stickers was not added to the model (see first pic).

• Two optional plates for the coffin were prepared, but were not published (see second pic).

Things never planned, but added


-

Random parts

• Model has one random part.

Costs


• The model was not co-financed by others. It was fully paid by Zymku.

Mistakes and bugs in model

• The ornament pattern on the windows and at the front of the model is not the same as the original, since it was difficult to find pictures of it on the internet and to make it from scratch.

Curiosities related to the working progress of the model


• The work on this model took place from May 27 to June 2, 2015.

Information about number plates

LK on the number plate stands for BeLla Karawan. 79 is an accidental number.

Base model


• Base for this model was Polonez Kombi.

Differences to other subversion of the simillar model

-

Original dimensions


• The model was not based on original dimensions due to lack of the information about this, so the estimated length of the car was calculated from the length of Polonez Truck and the known cargo area of Bella DC, which is 2300 mm long. The width and height of the model is correct though. The pic on the right shows information given to Lazlow555 during the work on this model.

Parts and textures prepared by darewnoo

• the upholstery, number plate and the clock texture, as well as the other textures made especially for this version: golden inscriptions on the door and on the side of the car, ornament, the sticker on the window and the plate on the coffin

Other curiosities


• It was our third and last model to be financed by a different person. Both authors (Lazlow555, darewnoo) agreed to make this version based on our earlier models from 2013. Polonez Bella hearse was initially never intended to be made, but thanks to Zymku and author’s permission, the model has been made.

 

• Initially, this model was supposed to be made first among the cars ordered by Zymku, but finally, both Cargo and Ambulance were made before it.

 

• Most of the time during the work on this model, the car had hubcaps from one of the earlier versions of Polonez Plus, but they were later replaced with a different pattern dedicated for this model.

 

• The hearse in Double Cab (DC) version built by Bella (with Atu taillights) was planned from the very beginning. The hearse built by Bautex (with taillights from Hyundai H1) was denied.

 

• The door panels as well as the side mirrors were firstly adapted from the standard Caro Plus version, instead of Truck Plus. This was changed later.

 

• Until the final textures were fixed, the upholstery had an incorrect pattern, since this was a standard blue upholstery painted red. After the final textures were corrected, the upholstery got a correct blue pattern. The same was with the incorrect colour of the dashboard – this was also fixed at the end.

 

• Most of the time during the work on this model, the car had an incorrect side window, which was modelled based on version built by Bautex, which was smaller and shorter. The window was fixed and lengthened later to match the one used in Bella ‘98.

 

• It is the third Polonez Plus which features fixed material of the hubcaps – in the earlier versions from 2013, the hubcaps were chrome, while here the hubcaps are matte – just like it should be from the very beginning.

 

• It is the third Polonez Plus with a corrected mistake from the earlier versions from 2013 – the bar above side windows is now black. Unfortunately, an incorrect mapping of the gear lever (partially fixed by editing the texture) or incorrect connections in the suspension are still errors that hasn’t been fixed.

 

• The coffin used in this model is actually the original 3D model used in Romero in GTA IV.

 

• The official colour sheet for the car was not available, but we were able to find out that the car was available in following colours: white, black, light grey, dark grey, dark blue and dark red, but their names and codes are not known. Most probably those paintjobs were designed by the manufacturer and were not used in FSO or Daewoo palette.

 

• The 3D curtains with the possibility to change their colour were planned from the beginning.

 

• For the purposes of advertisement of this model, darewnoo had made a promotional pic presenting the real hearse. The picture was made using the photomontage (see first pic). The picture was later placed in car’s folder.

 

• Before starting the work on this model, we were able to get in touch with the manufacturer of the car – Bella company, which send a couple of useful pictures, especially the picture showing the rear of the car (see second pic).

 

• Since Bella is a very rare car today, the archive of otomoto.pl was useful in searching the pictures.

 

• The curiosities for this model were never available on old mods.darewnoo.pl (2012-2016).
