Daimler-Benz developed this hardtop version of the 300 SLR endurance race car for the 1956 season. It was never raced because the company ceased motorsport activities at the end of the 1955 season.

Build a perfect replica of the Fiat Seats

All the necessary elements are included in the Kit.
Another huge improvement over the Pocher parts.
We are very proud of our Fiat seat kit and couldn't be more excited to have introduced it to all the Fiat Pocher builders across the globe.
Our Fiat Seat Kit will allow the modeler to build a perfect replica of both the driver and passenger Fiat Seats. From the button-tufted leather upholstery to the subtle lip on the outer seat frame, all the parts required to build the seats shown in the photo at the right are included.

Paul Koo has once again made Instructions that are clear, concise and include nearly 100 photos. Click here to view the instructions or go directly to the Fiat Store where you can place your order for your Fiat Seat Kit.

June's Feature Exhibit

Luciano Poli's

Alfa Monza

01-

Nuvolari drove Corsa number twenty-eight in the 1932 Monaco Grand Prix, and the number stayed with the car during its time with Scuderia Ferrari. Later, after winning the Monza GP, these cars were named for the famous Italian grand prix. Note the wonderful vented drums, and how the aluminum faces of the drums make the spoke on the black wheels look exactly right.

02

Carefully applied safety wires, fuel lines, spare wheel, leather straps-this model is a feast of details. For those of us who love classic cars, the only thing missing is the noise of the straight-cut supercharger gear-drive and the howl of the straight-eight exhaust.

03

Close inspection reveals safety wire on the fender mounts, and neatly painted running gear. The Pocher folk should be eligible for sainthood for their wonderful louvers, which are reflected in Sr. Poli's handsome paint job.

04

Only the lack of a backdrop and the missing gaiters under the windscreens give this away as a model. Straighten the radiator cap, add some gaiters, and this model is ready to be photographed in front of the entrance to Goodwood.

05

This photo is nearly impossible to identify as a model. The modern ignition coil and red ignition wires are the only hints, and they can be explained by a later date for the car. The surfaces and colors are wonderful. The light through the louvers is like icing on a cake.

06

The same photo in black and white is enough to fool an expert. It is amazing to see the transformation of our beloved Pocher models when shown in black and white, yet we seldom think to take such photos.

07

Proof of careful work, this close-up shows how much enjoyment Sr. Poli derived from his Monza. It is almost impossible to attend to so many perfect details unless one is having fun doing so. Those of us who have built this kit know the effort it takes to accomplish this effect, and our hats are off to Sr. Poli.
