I didn't have the money to buy it! I found a still in the bags 1/8 Pocher Alfa Romeo at my local flea market. He wanted $125 for it, but he said he would take $90. All that was missing were the instructions. He said he could hold it for as long as a month, so I might still buy it. Sorry. I just wanted to share it with you. Not every day that you find an almost mint condition Pocher kit in a local flea market.

Wow. $90 for a complete Pocher kits sounds almost too good to be true. You can download the instructions free at modelmotorcars.com. In fact, it's a good idea to take a look at them before you buy the kit so you know what's involved. It will also help you make sure the kit is complete.

He meant April Fool's Day, only it isn't a joke. I actually found one but missing the instructions. I talked him down to $90 for it, so I may still get it.

It must be an AFD Joke. Nobody with half a brain would miss out on a Pocher for 90$.

If you don't buy the kit, you can sell it for many times over on eBay as long as it's really complete.

Obviously, I did and I'm regretting it.
