An Important Announcement!


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 now have a Scale Hardware Model Museum.

Bronze Clevises



These clevises are designed to work with the stock 2.0 mm brake rods in Pocher Alfa and RR kits. Great improvement for the highly visible Alfa and RR front axles; makes a nice addition to Bugatti shift linkage and the Mercedes hand brake linkage. Finally, no more struggling with over-size and awkward-to-use 2.0 mm slotted screws and the sheet-metal kit-supplied clevises which rarely line up right the first time.

Part No. Z029
$12.00 set of six (00-90 hex-head bolts included)

The Yomeimon Gate - 1:50 scale


The two-story Yomeimon Gate, a designated national treasure otherwise known as Sunlight Gate, exhibits an astonishing collection of 500 wood carvings. Once you pass through this symbolic gate of Toshogu, another famous animal ornamentation awaits; that of the Sleeping Cat curled at the top of Sakashita-mon Gate.

What makes this gate amazing and special is that the gate has over 500 sculptures on it. Included in these sculptures are some fantasy creatures and some other strange made up creatures. Something that makes an appearance on the gate more than once are three monkeys in the "see no evil; hear no evil; speak no evil" pose. Other examples of something you would not expect to see on a gate in Japan would be giraffes and elephants, which as you know are not native to Japan nor anywhere near Japan. Some of their made up creatures include horse-dragons and mysterious fish-type creatures. Altogether, there are 194 different imaginary animals on the gate. Also included on this gate are hundreds of statues from almost every Japanese legend you can think of. This gate encompasses almost all Japanese culture in one giant piece of art, something that was well worth the millions and millions of Japanese yen it took to make.

We have now opened the Scale Hardware Model Museum. Featuring all scales and subjects!
