    I was wondering if anyone out there knew what "sirka délka" means.
    I am working on a model and two of the parts simply say this and note 8 mm and 6mm. I sort of assume this is balsa wood but if anyone can clairify this for me I'd appreciate it.

    Thank you!

    Well, it looks like Czech to me. The online translator said it means "match quantity". So does that mean matchsticks cut 8mm and 6mm long?

    By the way, the translator I used is InterTran:

    Translated separately it has the same meaning in almost all Slavic languages, such as Czech, Russian, Slovakian, Bulgarian. The spelling and pronounciation is different but the basic meaning is identical. etc.

    "delka" = length
    "sirka" = width

    And here is how it turned out!

    It suffered some damage when my 1 & 1/2 year old got a hold of it but I'm still proud!

    Can you see the little wood pieces around the railings and roof?

    Thank you for the help!
