We did it...again!

Announcing our Replacement Tires for the Lamborghini Aventador

As we have built new Replacement Tires for all the Pocher marquees: it was only natural we would build them for the new Pocher Lamborghini Kit.

They are flexible (no need to heat! See instruction photo from the Kit manual below), the right feel, color the photo above shows they deflate. The secret was in the rib we built into the Tire. We were concerned the weight would squish the Tire, but, the rib holds them perfectly.

You can see the deflation in this prototype photo.

The ribs are clearly visible in the photo.

Turning a Pocher into a Work of Art!

That's not the prototype! It's a photograph of Craig Chirgwin's award winning model of the Alfa 8c2300 "Muletto". Marvin was in Australia to be a judge in the annual Model Expo Show in Melbourne last June. Craig's model won First place and two special awards; deservedly so! He spent two and half years building it...and, it shows. His attention to details is amazing. An inspiration to us all!

In 1991, we started Model Motorcars with a focus on building the legendary Pocher 1:8 scale classics and a dedication to the enjoyment of building these models. During the past 20 years, we have built many Alfa Romeos, Bugattis, Fiats, Mercedes-Benz and Rolls-Royce scale motorcars and, in doing so, have developed over four hundred parts that you can use on your own Pocher project. In addition, we have written books and published CD's that go into great depth about the Pocher building process. And finally we have compiled a vast catalog of hardware, tools and machines that have become invaluable to us throughout the years.

Our history is captured in the Model Motorcars Gallery while our friends from every continent display their incredible skills in the International Pocher Museum. As modelers ourselves, we are proud to be part of this great community of craftsmen and are today, as we were when we began, dedicated to helping you enjoy building Pochers as much as we do. We thank you for all of your wonderful contributions to Model Motorcars and to everyone we wish you a lifetime of Happy Pochering!
