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.
From the earliest days of Model Motorcars, the Pocher four-door cabriolet has played for us an important role but always in modified form-sedanca fenders, ambassador fenders, rear-mounted spare but we never tackled the problem of the bright aluminum fenders and hoods. Ironically, when my custom-building service has virtually eliminated any need to build 'stock' Pochers,
a customer's request for an anniversary present resulted in my first crack at the 'Maharajah Rolls' or, as it has come to be known, the Star of India.
Featuring a lowered body, twenty lights, and numerous working features, my version of 188PY turned out to be one of the most cantankerous models I have ever encountered. From cracking plastic to lost parts at the chrome shop, this model's tricks and assaults were only eclipsed by my need for a coronary by-pass right in the middle of construction. Maybe I shouldn't have put those green eyes in the elephant motifs.
The elephant motifs have green miniature light bulbs for eyes; the guns are scratch-built.

Driving lights steer with front wheels. Model features 20 working lights and a working top.
