Created more than 40 years ago with amazing detail, Pocher Classic models have become coveted collectibles for modelers and automobile lovers all over the world. At Model Motorcars, we understand your drive to improve your Pocher experience, bringing you the best catalog of proprietary parts and materials for over 25 years. From all imaginable parts to books, CDs and tools to help you build and customize the car of your dreams, we have you covered. We pride ourselves in providing the best researched, manufactured and finished parts the world over.
We are very excited to inform you that Model Motorcars has purchased the brand name and inventory of Scale Hardware, a company specialized in miniature nuts, bolts, rivets, fasteners, etc., which serviced hobbyists and miniature machinists globally for over 20 years. We believe this will be a great addition to our already vast line-up, as the Pocher community continues to evolve into super-detailing our beloved Pochers to new heights!
A new web site has been constructed which features all the fantastic Scale Hardware products,
as well as photos of many great models built using them. As is our tradition, we will also have a Scale Hardware International Museum.
We bring you instruction manuals, thousands of model and prototype pictures, build logbooks, hard to find essential tools and materials to achieve the level of quality and satisfaction you are striving for. We are no further from your shop than an email away, and we are always happy to share what we have learned.
We have been offering our Tires for over 7 years at the same price. Now, because of a decision by our supplier, we need to have an increase. Our margins will also be smaller. The Tires are an important element to your finished model and we will keep making them available!
Our Tires are unique...took us many months of work with our supplier to develop the right materials to give them the flexibility and feel we wanted. They have accurate treads and brand details, the whitewalls are cast separately (no more painting!) and they "deflate" under the natural weight of a Pocher.
That such a model comes from Austria is not a surprise. For all sorts of historic reasons, the Austrians have more than their share of master-craftsmen, and when it comes to miniaturization, they have an embarrassment of riches. Among these magicians with metal is Markus Berger, the creator of this month's subject model. Unfortunately for the rest of us, there is nothing of a Pocher involved, though it is possible that having a Pocher for reference may have made the job a bit easier. Anyhow, the workmanship and thoroughness is something we all can admire and aspire to. Just think of the agony of covering all of this lovely brass with paint. It would be wonderful to suggest that if one were to build enough Pochers, one will eventually arrive at this level of competence. Alas, such progress is but a dream: Few of the skills of one transfer to the skills necessary for the other.
