Earthquake Rattles Czech Diecast Museum

Tragedy can strike without warning nor regard as Eduard Pařízek and the Museum of Metal Models recently discovered the hard way.

The museum located in Týniště nad Orlicí sustained major damages as a result of a short, but powerful, earthquake on June 27 that shook the Czech city.

It’s estimated that Pařízek – who began amassing his collection of 1:43 and 1:64 scale models some 50 years ago – saw roughly a third of his 6,000-car exhibition damaged in the temblor.

Here some more and after shots –
