Thank you every one I am glad that you like it and hope you won't get bored by all models I will present here (and I will present all models )
Here is one model I have not uploaded when I first time covered FAP trucks, it is a FAP 1616, one of first models created in late 1970's by combination of the older FAP technology and new Mercedes-Benz NG (New Generation) license that FAP bought in the 1976. Noted it the FAP version of MB NG cab with different front grille mask that was specific for most of FAP models. There are two standard versions of this model, the FAP 1616 B (B letter is for cab over engine) and FAP 1616 BD (D letter for longer cab, Serbo-croatian duga). Due the weak engine, this model was not so long in production and soon it was replaced with FAP 1620 which has stronger engine.

The FAP 1620 was also the creation of combination of older FAP technologies and new MB NG, in production since 1976. It is the more powerful than FAP 1616, with stronger 200 hp FAMOS 2F engine. It was mass used in many companies across former Yugoslavia. The standard version was FAP 1620 BD (cab over engine and long cab) with many types of this truck by purpose.
Also mass used by many companies in Yugoslavia was the semi-trailer truck, FAP 1620 BDT.
The version with short cab FAP 1620 B was used mainly for water tank trucks and fire engines. And the dump truck, FAP 1620 BK was not so mass produced as standard FAP 1620 BD due it was replaced in production by FAP 1921.
The rare version FAP 2220 was in fact the FAP 1620 with extended additional axle, so it has become 6x2 truck. It was also used for specialized duties.
During the 1990's and after the violent dissolution of former socialist Yugoslavia and civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the FAMOS factory from Sarajevo was unable to produce truck engines, so in FAP created upgraded version of FAP 1620 with imported Mercedes-Benz engine, the FAP 1621. Note the MB sing on front end grille.
I would like again to ask moderator to replace links of my older FAP 1620 work with this new one
Happy New year to all members of Ship bucket! Best wishes

Just one nit-pick - templates may have more than 1000x330 pixels, but not less (and that applies to previous entries too).
Once they will be put on proper-sized templates, I'll replace the links (as is "normal procedure" anyway ).
