My first Pocher kit and my first non F1 build. I found this one on the net and it’s got a few little extra details. Not all the packets are intact some I’m hoping that everything is there. It’s the K70 kit from the States in the 1970’s.
The Fiat 130 HP F2 was a 1907 car that scooped up many of the major racing prizes of its day. Four cylinder 16.286 Litre… !!! Must have been quite a job to crank that over by hand.
I’m thinking of deviating from the red colour scheme and going for Black which I’ve seen done on a great build of this kit by Rick Levene featured on the Model Motorcars site.

First job is to start identifying the parts. The numbering system is not exactly what I would call Intuitive…. Roy’s restoration build of this kit is going to be a great help.

I'm sure you'll have great fun with this kit.
My build was from a very tatty box of scrap so I had to work with what I had but an un-started kit will give you even more scope to go potty.

I'll be watching in.BigGrin

ooh I cant wait to see what you can do with this Malc. Pocher kits are very frustrating IMO, but well worth all the effort.
