The Museum has been remodeled!
In 2007 Model Motorcars announced the grand opening of the Model Motorcars International Museum of Pochers. This online museum is dedicated to the presentation and photographic documentation of Pocher models and the talented modelers who built them. Now, seven years after its opening, the museum has over 4,000 items on display that have come from countries all over the world. With over 1500 modelers represented, The Model Motorcars International Museum of Pochers is now the definitive collection of Pocher models on display.
We have rebuilt every gallery and optimized every photograph to enhance our presentation and your online tour. Now you can see every detail of each exhibit in high-definition so that you may better appreciate the artistry and skill that has gone into every car in the collection.

December's Featured Exhibit

In 1935, Giuseppe Figoni took on Ovidio Falaschi as a partner in his bespoke automobile body firm of Carrosserie Automobilie. Renamed Figoni et Falaschi, and located in Boulogne-sur-Seien, the firm went on to create automobiles that today are the consistent Best of Show winners at the most prestigious Concours d’Elegance in the world and the standard-bearers of automotive beauty and elegance.
78 years later, John Haddock has captured the grace and grandeur of Figoni et Falaschi in his 1932 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Fixed Head. Sporting the iconic goutee d’eau (Tear Drop) shape and enveloppantes (enveloping pontoon fenders) that were Giuseppe’s and Ovidio’s automotive signature, John’s masterpiece is a 1:8 scale tour de force and a fitting tribute to the custom body builders of the great age of the classics.

We hope that you enjoy our December Feature Exhibit as we present John Haddock’s stunning Figoni et Falaschi Rolls-Royce Phantom II
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 23 years,
we have built many Alfa Romeos, Bugattis, Fiats, Mercedes-Benz and Rolls-Royce
scale motorcars and, in doing so, have developed over five 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.
