I could get some headers with change for my 1:1 GTO for that price. I'll pass, but I'll sure enjoy watching you guys build them.

Yeah, I know the owner of my LHS.. very reliable.

 

Total price shipped to him will be $800CDN.  That's his quoted price for me, so if my past big purchases are any indication, it won't be any higher than that.

Looks a nice kit. As Hornby are the holding company for Airfix maybe they will have tooled up the plastic bits for this new model. At least they should fit properly, unlike the old Pocher kits. It will be selling at about £500.00 in the UK I am led to believe. Given that the 1/24th scale Tamiya kit for the Aston Martin UK price is £45.00 or more sort of puts it into perspective about the relative value for money for each kit. Having said that, although the new Pocher kit represents fantastic good value for money purely as a big complex kit, but it will still be perceived as expensive. It really comes down to how much disposable income any modeller has to spend. There are many multi medium kits on the market aimed at experienced (and wealthy) car modellers that are very expensive by comparison. e.g. A 1/24th scale kit of the Nissan Le Mans car dubbed the 'Batmobile' retails at about £150.00 here in the UK because they are limited run kits.

I don't recall if it was part of the original offering, but I see the Pocher site also lists a display case.

I think the display case is a separate item...an addtional $200+....its suppose to suit other Pocher vehicles....I'm thinking of getting granite or marble base and have a plastics company make the acrylic case....something wider and taller ...so i can display doors and boot lid opened.

Correct- size the case to fit open features but not way oversized. Instead of plastic, consider glass for the case. Much more clear and never rag scratches from cleaning. A picture framer would have no problem making you one and may cost around the same.

Don't scrimp-you're starting with an $800 model.

Cato nice display case....I'm thinking a pedestal display case would also look really nice...they can get pricey...I can probably make the cabinet part myself.

If you can make a cabinet, you can make a glass case.

Yup.  At a roughly 600-piece count, it seems to pick up where the diecast Ferraris left off, but the engineering of those parts seems a lot more comprehensive and lifelike in this one. If the kit delivers on the finish of the prototypes, we should have a pretty significant improvement for right about the same price as the F40 when it was new, as adjusted for inflation.

 

Got an order in on one in Arancia...

I ordered one in Bianco Isis....i assume with black interior....I hope we see some aftermarket wheels...Some of the tuned-out 1:1's have some sinister wheels for this car...

Anybody thinking about doing a repaint?

I was thinking Matt Black.. Watch....it'll be the color available in 2014!

Will wait and see, how the factory paintjob of my Isis White Aventador is done. Unfortunately the white version will take about a month longer than the Orange one for delivery. The zero-series, shown at the Nuremburg toy fair had some imperfections, but it's said to be overworked until product launch. Never mind, cause I'm tempted to do the grigio estoque paint.CLA00302-6sm.jpg

According to Brady Ward from Scale Autoworks.........It looks like orders for the white Aventador will recieve theirs first...in late October...and the orange will follow 2-3 weeks later.....I'm glad I switched my order for the white...

More tidbits for the Aventador

Looks like aftermarket disc brakes and pedals are needed
