I know they're big but you gonna display them on the dining room table??  :lol:

 

It's the only flat surface I have that's big enough to shoot them on!

Seriously Harry-how will you display them? A cabinet with doors? Surely you want them dust free. And I forgot-you also have the Benz done and Sedanca in process! Great if you have big rooms but...how will you group them?

 

For my RR, I'm intending to do another of my glass cases for both display and storage.

I know it will be a heavy sucker (and large) but I dread exposure to dust and humidity. All that unplated metal will turn in room humidity. And I just can't like plexi for the rag-scratching.

Shelving units (cabinets) with glass doors. 

 

Something like this:

I have a bunch of them, side by side, covering the walls.

Not really. It's a spare bedroom, maybe 12x12.

Harry, what a master piece. It will be a center of the display any place. I have the same kit but I don't know if its first issue or what, but the box art has one white and one red (I think) car on it. I will have to see what year it was made. Anyway, I'm interested to read more about all those inaccuracies you talked about. Did you build it online here or some other site that I can read?? TIA.

 

Mike

I didn't do a work in progress on this one, just posted the finished product. And only here, no place else.

Geez, this is gorgeous, and I can believe the level of detail.  I guess these kits are expensive for that reason, they really allow you to go all out.

 

These belong in a museum, Harry.

To build a Pocher that nice....you must have the patience of Job and be a glutton for punishment. Very nice work!

 

BTW, have you ever built one of their Bugattis? I have one on the shelf but haven't had the guts to do it.

I would love to get my hands on a Bugatti. I've built the 1907 Fiat Grand Prix car, a couple of Alfas, a couple of Mercedes, and a couple of Rolls Royces... but I've never found a Bugatti for sale for a price I'm willing to pay. I've been looking for an affordable Bugatti for years now, but so far no luck.
