Rare Czech made combine

An outstanding find, this plastic combine made by Smer from the Czech Republic.
It represents the John Deere 530 type combine, which was originally made by Wader of Germany as a promotional model. Later on, Smer obtained the moulds from Wader and did this 1/32nd scale combine again but now without the 'John Deere 530' text on the side plates.
Obviously they also made a yellow version, which I have never seen before!
