  1. Pocher Testarossa Renovation & Completion

    I have been building other subjects the last while and not here much. This gets my mojo running so I will post lots about it Here is my first attempt at putting together a Pocher model. Now it is a metal body/ plastic parts from the exotic collection. I can Hear Harry roll over in his grave and Cato's eyes roll back in his head, but here is where I choose to start my Pocherism So, Ferrari Testarossa, semi assembled by nice old guy in States with failing eyesight and health bought about five years ago now. Pretty clean body work and decent interior. Engine not started and a detail upgrade set provided. These are pics in my big woodworkshop as it is 16 pounds and just under 2 feet long. I plan on doing sub assembly work in my model room and put it all together in the big shop. I have an F40 that needs similar treatment and show it in the WIP display shelving for my Pocher collection....a lot messy at the moment
  2. Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 / Brass Build

    The Project So Far... This project started as a Pocher Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Kit in 2011, but has grown into a mostly scratch build in brass. I thought I’d post a few images of the build for the fine Modelers on this forum. Very few of the Pocher parts remain; the engine block halves are the original Pocher parts, but most other engine assemblies have been cast in white metal or built from scratch. The terrific Pocher wire wheels are being used as well as many metal fasteners. This car is an amalgam of my favorite features from several of the surviving examples. The cockpit panel is aluminum with machine turning details from a Dremel and small brush. The firewall is brass featuring a vintage Autovac unit, cast extra spark plugs, and wiring busses. The scratch built brass radiator with plumbing. Most engine parts are cast or scratch built. A brass alternator with wiring. The manifolds are cast from white metal. Supercharger details... The start of a brass chassis... Suspension assemblies are mostly scratch builds... The brass cockpit floor with scale hardware. Leaf spring assembly... The Pocher body is used as a body buck for fitting components. Brass steering wheel... The chassis is assembled. I will next add wiring assemblies a construct a metal body.
  3. Don't hate me, but...

    I was looking on a Dutch online marketplace and found me this kit for 25 dollars! Most is in the bags as it should be But the engine was put together, considering I paid 25 dollars for it, I can live with it haha.
  4. I bought this big Ducati last week, the metal parts are very nice but the plastic looks really cheap so that will al be painted. Im also not a fan of the black screws in the engine so I will try to find some replacement for that also. To be continued
  5. Greetings all, First, thanks for the add. I'm a car interior design director for a major automotive supplier here in Michigan. I've been doing models since I was a kid, back in the twentieth century. I stumbled across this site while looking for information about building large scale models. What a gold mine of info, especially the BigBoyz section! I've been working on a pair of Pocher 1931 Alfas for....wait for it...25 years (off and on). I got them from a friend who, at the time, said "build both, keep one". So, I've just pulled them out after a several year hiatus and decided to "enhance" them with some scratch-built parts while on assignment in Shanghai, China. Here are a few shots of the work on #1. Although they may not be "pure", I'm interpreting them as if they might have been. After seeing a version of this model done by a guy who basically duplicated he plastic parts in brass, I was inspired to try some of his ideas in styrene as my ability to do metalwork is nil. I'm happy with the updates so far and am interested in any critique of the work so far. I admit, up front, that I'm going to steal as many great ideas as possible for this site. Thanks again for accepting me.
  6. ALFA ROMEO ALUMINIUM BRAKE DRUM ROTORS

    Hello everybody, while surfing on ebay I found this auction for a set of 4 aluminium brake drum rotors for the Pocher alfa romeo. It looks interesting, they also say that they have more parts to come. here is the link http://www.ebay.it/itm/POCHER-GENUINE-ALUMINIUM-BRAKE-ROTORS-1-8-/251281640292?pt=Modellismo_Statico&hash=item3a818d8b64&_uhb=1#ht_500wt_1414 Best Marco
  7. ALFA ROMEO 8C 2300 1/8 Restoration

    Hi everybody, I am a fan of 1/8 scale, new to this forum and I would like to share with you my restoration project of a badly assembled and even worse restored in the 90's Alfa Romeo 8C2300 Monza from Pocher As you can see from the pictures of the model before the beginning of restoration the conditions where very bad. disassembling the car The engine is the first part being taken care. Pocher models are fine but they have many imperfections in shape, mould, wrong components and so on. If you have ever built a Pocher you know how painful can be to get the parts to match. All the cast on nuts and bolts have been removed and 1mm holes have been drilled. Brass hex head screws have been used. The engine mounts have been modified to correct shape so the steering can be mounted correctly and the ugly pocher screws recess filled with putty and also the engine halves have been joined and filled with putty then sanded The oil pan with brass hex nuts and copper rivets The exhaust modified as a two piece
