I don't know...Lamborghini sales went up 30% from last year...They intended to produce 600-700 cars in 2011.... but has exceeded 1000...there's a 18 month waiting period for buyers for the Aventador and the Aventador roadster....So the public certainly likes this car...I think Pocher will do well with this...in fact if they come out with the Veryon GTA 5, Maclaren P1, Veneno, La Ferrari.....well they can take my money on those too.

 

But I'm sure Pocher will do the 60's cars to please the masses....I'll buy GT-40Mk1.....if they do

Assuming the 'new' Pochers avoid the pitfalls of the old generation (wonky fits, poor attachments, vague instructions etc), it would be wonderful to have those 'classic' sports and race cars from the 50's to 70's.

The level of fit and detail appears fine on this new generation Avent but the subject is too 'Flash Gordon' for me.

Wish they re-release the Alfa and Sedanca with the modern assembly and engineering too....

"Flash Gordon"? Haha...I get what you mean....I like to think of it as Batman-ish.      Nolan was big on Lambos...I think he based the Tumbler design on the Countach.

When Nolan was having his people design the new Batmobile, said he wanted it to have elements of the Murcielago, and Bruce Wayne does drive Murcielago in the first two Batman movies he directed (I think it was an Aventador in the one with the silly-voiced Bane), so I think you're right about him having a thing for Lambos.

 

Anyway- I have zero interest in this kit, but I can't wait to see what you do with yours. B)

It would be most helpful to tell us if you find flash, (better not-these are new molds!) sink marks, pin marks and scratched glass-all hallmarks of the older generation Pochers.
